I run java and javac in a Cygwin terminal. I figured out which java it was using, then aliased javac as I have issues sharing paths between cygwin and Windows.



Ooops, I may have a problem there When I set this up I didn't have a system32/java....

Eclipse runs fine, but I prefer my CLI methods.

Please don't hijack a thread by posting a new question like that. I have created a new thread from it, so it is all right now.
Don't know Cygwin enough to help, I am afraid.

Err, I was neither trying to hijack a thread nor start a new one. The original poster didn't seem to have much of a clue, I was simply making a comment in case he was using cygwin.

This thread can die as far as I'm concerned.

No, he didn't appear to be using Cygwin. But thank you for trying to help

To use windows java installation with cygwin I added JRE and JDK as environment varaible and added those then to path.
Hope this helps.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
