Java in Windows XP Fujitsu Classic series laptop
Hi All,
can you pl. tell me the limitations of running Java programs in Windows XP in the mentioned laptop.
What is the procedure that I can make to run on my laptop
Thanks to all,
Bhuvana
According to Sun, to run the newest J2SDK, which is both for the development and running of Java applications, on Windows requires at least a Pentium-compatible 166MHz with 32MB of RAM.
According to Microsoft, to install and run Windows XP Home Edition requires a PC with at least a 300MHz Pentium-compatible processor with 128MB of RAM.
So, given enough hard drive space, if your system can run Windows XP, then it should be powerful enough to run many Java applications.
Or is there something special about your laptop that you haven't explained?
Hi Dirk,
thanks for the reply.
Anyway its Pentium 4 with XP Professional and has 256 MB RAM. I want to use it at home to work on projects like JAVA,JSP.Pl. guide me.

Thanks,
Bhuvana
Also it has the Service Pack 1a.
forgot to mention this.
Thanks
I'm not sure what type of guidance you're seeking.

If you're looking for beginner resources to start learning to program in Java, then here is a list of free beginner level on-line Java tutorials and books that I have found useful:
  • Sun's Java Tutorial
  • Introduction to Computer Science using Java by Bradley Kjell
  • Introduction to Programming Using Java by David J. Eck
  • Dick Baldwin's Java Programming Tutorials
  • Interactive Programming In Java by Lynn Andrea Stein
  • Bruce Eckel's Thinking In Java
  • Note that in Sun's tutorial is included a section called "Your First Cup of Java (for Microsoft Windows)" that may interest you.
    Dirk,
    Thanks for the info.
    anyway I am not new to programming.I am JSP developer.
    BTW,I have a new laptop loaded with Windows XP Pro with ServicePack 1.(Not 1a).
    when I type "jview" in the command prompt it says JVM is present
    The issue is,
    1. I installed oracle 9i personal edition.This installs jdk1.3.1-06 version.
    After I installed the Oracle 9i.I set the classpath as
    C:\oracle\ora92\jdk\lib; in the environment variable of XP.
    (The above is the path)
    Later when I try "javac", it says
    javac is not recognised as an internal or external command,operable program or batch file.
    This is really bugging. I am not able to meet up my deadline.I am really frustrated.
    Also it has been installed in FAT32 instead of NTFS.Will taht pose any problem?
    Pl. help me
    Thanks

    Unless you've some class files in your jdk/lib folder, you probably don't need that directory in your CLASSPATH. One good thing to have in your CLASSPATH is the current working directory, which is specified by a dot (.)
    javac is a program. If your system is complaining that it cannot find it, then you may want to add its location to your PATH setting. It's normally located in the jdk/bin folder. Note that this is mentioned in the first cup of java tutorial I listed above. That tutorial includes more detailed steps.

    No.
