I am using Windows XP.

From DOS, how do I compile (javac) from any directory? I know there is a way, I just can't remember.

I have my java enviroment variable like this:

JAVA_HOME
C:\j2sdk1.4.2_10\bin

Thanks in advance...

you got to set your path variable.

From dosprompt

c:>set path=%path%;C:\j2sdk1.4.2_10\bin

JAVA_HOME variable should point to the root of JDK.

JAVA_HOME=C:\j2sdk1.4.2_10;

U can set the Path variable in Enviornment Variable also.That way u dont have to set path variable each time in command promt.

One Disadvantage is if u use multiple installation of JDK, u wont be able to configure it dynamically.
