sorry if this has been asked before, i did a scan of the last few pages, if it was there i missed it. Obviously complete noob here...

installed java_ee_sdk-5_07-jdk-6u16-windows.exe on xp

'javac' is not recognized as an internal or external command.
and
exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError:

all google results point to wrong PATH environment variable, but what's there is C:\Sun\SDK\bin, that's as it was when installed.
theres no javac.exe in there, theres a javac.exe in C:\Sun\SDK\jdk\bin, but directing the environment variable there didnt seem to help.

can see i have a long way to go before i figure out what im doing :P
any suggestions?
thanks

If you have javac.exe in C:\Sun\SDK\JDK\bin then you should add that to the PATH environment variable, and once there you would need to close and re-open a new command line.

@Steve
The last line made me a bit curious.
If I make changes to the path and/or classpath, and I wish to continue to use the same command prompt, can I do so after running C:\autoexec.bat?
Will the changes in classpath and/or path reflect in the current command prompt?
Or are there any other means to do so?
I do not wish to type in all the commands again that I had already ran before. I wish to use the down or up arrow keys to get to the previous commands ran

Please don't ask new questions on somebody else's thread, Samaresh Gupte. This is called hi=jacking, and is not regarded at all highly. I am closing this thread.

By the way: don't set up a system CLASSPATH.
