Hi all,
I've got a question about what paths and folders I should end up with after installing Java on my Win XP box.
I've downloaded from Sun and installed the following:
- J2SE 1.4.2 SDK (from http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/download.html)
- J2EE 1.4 SDK (from http://java.sun.com/j2ee/1.4/download-dr.html)
What I've noticed after all that is that there are a number of places that java.exe appears:
C:\j2sdk1.4.2_03\bin
C:\j2sdk1.4.2_03\jre\bin
C:\Program Files\Java\j2re1.4.2_03\bin
C:\Sun\AppServer\jdk\bin
C:\Sun\AppServer\jdk\jre\bin
Is this really what I should have ended up with? When I run 'java -verbose -version' the resulting blur of console output seems to indicate that the path to java.exe is defaulting to C:\Program Files\Java\j2re1.4.2_03\bin
So I guess I'm wondering if this is how things should have ended up? It's also not clear what the J2EE SDK installed, over and above everything under C:\Sun\AppServer\ Is that correct?
Many thanks in advance for any help.
Cheers,
Justin

Welcome to JavaRanch, justin!
I'm not sure about the details of the J2EE SDK installation, but it appears that you've performed a typical, default, and correct installation of the J2SE and J2EE SDKs.
If you develop a problem, you may want to take more direct control over the PATH, CLASSPATH, JAVA_HOME, and J2EE_HOME settings. But if things are working fine now, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
