Greg I don't get a Path= line I get this:
@C:\PROGRA~2\NORTON~1\NAVDX.EXE /Startup
REM [Header]
@ECHO OFF

REM [CD-ROM Drive]
REM [Miscellaneous]

I am going to check the site and read the long winded version offered by the others, but gregg don't let that keep you from answering again. Multiple paths mean more probability for sucess in my book.

I just got back from a lengthy holiday and decided to continue my Java-jedi training. I have everything set up to do this at work, but I have forgotten how to set the classpath at home.
I keep getting 'Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: MyProgram'
when I write a program in Text Pad and then type: javac MyProgram.java

Please help me remeber how to set the autoexec bat thingy or whatever you call it.

Well, here is the program as it is so far:
(code deleted by Marilyn to protect future participants)
I have no idea how I would incorporate what you wrote into the code I wrote.

Hi all,
"You-all" got any ideas how I can get String array data to print out in columns and rows.
I have been working on assignment one of the cattle drive, and I have this one line that looks like this:
System.out.println(" " + '\t' + args[0] );
When the array is printed, it just "vomits" everything out in one big column. How do I get the String array data to display in columns and rows?

Hi,
Why does a byte cover a range from -128 to 127? Wouldn't it be more logical to have it cover a range of -127 to 128? I'm just curious as to why this was set up like this.

API
Hi Frank,
There is probably no problem looking at the html through the browser. I just couldn't remember how I had accessed the pages before.
Maybe it is not the API that I am thinking of. What I was thinking of was these html pages where you can look at the different Java classes and the methods that they use. It's like a reference. It was very helpful if you were looking for a method to perform a function, but didn't know the syntax or if you wanted to see what class belonged to a particular superclass, etc.
I get lost fast at the sun site. They've got so many products and APIs. I just keep jumping from link to link getting more and more confused about which product I should be using. I have no idea what sun calls these html pages.
I thought maybe I needed to download them.
Wait! I just found it. Its at: http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.3/docs/api/index.html
This is what I'm talking about.
Is this the right one for the Java� 2 Standard Edition Runtime Environment?
Sorry for the silly questions. I'm just confused about all of the products.
I was just looking at my D: drive and realised (realized) I have about four bin folders. I have installed and uninstalled so many products since I started that I no longer know what is what.

I just checked the "Java-thingy" that I have is called the:
Java� 2 Standard Edition Runtime Environment
Is that the same as the J2SE? Sorry, I'm still confused about all the products. I guess they have changed the names since the last time I downloaded something.

Okay. . .
so do you have to go into the directory in Winexplorer and double click on the file index.html or what do you do when you are looking for something?
Isn't there some way to look into the html through TextPad?
I was thinking there was a way to display the html inside one of the TextPad windows, but I am getting older so maybe I'm just starting to remember things funny.

API
Hi Frank,
I'm talking about the HTML pages where you can go in an look at the classes, their different methods and all that jazz. I don't remember how to view it.
I was thinking I had to go to the sun website to do it, but perhaps it is integral to the SDK? Basically, I just want to know how you would display this information. How do I get the HTML pages to come up?

Hi all,
How do I get the API to work?
Is the API normally downloaded or do you look at it on the Sun Website?
Do you have to have an internet connection to view the API?
Can I do something to view the API directly from TextPad?

Hi all,
Okay, I realise (realize) that Sun has a bit of a "tiff" with Microsoft, but what is the deal with the Jbuilder? I've heard that people are adamantly against it. Why?
I mean I've never used the Jbuilder. Heck, I don't ever really know what it is. I imagine that it's something like visual age. I just know that a lot of the people I work with prefer it. I don't know why. Can someone give me an objective perspective on this one?

Ok. I'm working on a tutorial right now. After that, I will try the cattle drive.

Paul: Yeah I think two heads are better than one as well. I'm having a bit of trouble finding the other person though. It's got a lot to do with the environment where I work, but let's not go into that. I don't want to bore you. I'm not to the point yet where I feel like I understand enough to write code. Sure I can do . . .
public static void main (String [] args){
}
*See, just had to edit this!
. . ., but to be honest I still have to look it up to be sure its right. I do have big plans though. Right now its time to start putting them into action. Thanks for your input.
Ryan: Thanks! I didn't know about the book being available on - line. I must have missed that. I like deep subjects. Otherwise I probably wouldn't even be trying this! I'll give it a shot and work on the tutorial. If it gets too tough I'll try something easier.

I had a problem with the path while trying to install the SDK at work on an NT machine a while back. I think it was version 1.2. I think I have that straightened out now. At least everything seems to run.
I'm not sure I'll be able to do it again when I try to install everything at home. I have two machines there: One with Windows the other with ME.
I'm just not sure what to use:
Do I want to use the J2SE, or a J2EE? My guess is the J2SE, but I want to build a "complex" game for my first real Java project and I was thinking perhaps I might need some of the other features later on. My game won't have any graphics or anything complex like that, but it might use some pictures or clip art. I don't want to have to switch horses in midstream later on. I don't know if I need an "enterprise-class server-side application" to do all that or not.
I get lost on the Jargon:
What is a comprehensive Application Programming Model and Compatibility Test Suite? (It sure sounds nice! Does it come with a waterbed?)
What is a enterprise-class server-side application? ( I think I had one once, but the wheels fell off.)
What is a beta release?
