hi,
i m getting error when i compile this code:
package A;
class B {
public static void main (String arg[]){
System.out.println("Hello");
}
}
I made a folder in jdk1.3 with the name of A and put this file in that folder. And then compile it with the command C:/jdk1.3/bin>javac A.B.java
I have tried even C:/jdk1.3/bin>javac B.java
but compiler complaints that it did'nt find this class.
Plz help me out.
Thanks in advance

"Bad command" is because the "javac" command is not recognized since you are not in the bin directory. What I recommend you to do is set your PATH variable to include C:\jdk1.3\bin and that way you can call javac from anywhere.
Moreover, I'm moving this to Java in General (Beginner).

Go to Windows help and look it up.
You need to include the location of your bin library - someting like:
PATH .;D:\jdk1.3.1\bin;D:\jdk1.3.1\MyStuff;%PATH%;

you have to go to dos and make sure your path is C:\
then type:
C:\edit autoexec.bat
if the blue screen is empty, click file and open file called autoexec.bat
in autoexec.bat add in this line:
SET PATH C:\jdk1.3.1\bin
and then restart your windows. you will be able to compile and run your java where ever you like.
