Not sure if I downloaded the JDK  RSS feed

I downloaded the Java EE 5 SDK, which should have included a JDK, but I can't seem to find my compiler. I have access to an Admin Console, Default Server, and Java DB, but I don't see the compiler anywhere. I use JBuilder on campus, and I am unfamiliar with the SDK software. My Sun folder has a JDK folder, but no JDK installer. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Welcome to the Ranch.
When you downloaded the J2EE package, did you install the SE ("standard edition") package too? You need both, available together here.
Have you followed the instructions for setting your PATH environment variable? If that isn't set exactly right it won't work. You can find instructions for Windows 2000/XP here. For Linux the quickest way is to write (assuming /usr/java/jdk1.6.0_03 is where you installed Java) on a shell before you start any programming. You can do a search of Linux fora for how to edit the .bashrc file so as to set the PATH permanently on Linux, if you prefer.

All the best, CR

Yes! I needed to fix my PATH, which was in a different location than the Java Tutorial example (In a Sun folder rather than a Java folder). Thanks so much!
