I don't really know where to begin.
I found a web site that had free java tutorials.
I followed all the instructions installed every piece of java software that I was
java_ee_sdk-6ul-web-windows.exe and jdk-6u21-windows-i586.exe
I have the current java version installed and I even changed the Path and Classpath as instructed.
I have a Vista and when I go to the Command Prompt and enter "javac" I'm still getting the "not recognized as an internal or external command operable program or batch file"
