    Default Downloading Java development kit

    OK, i got Windows 7 32 bit operative system.

    I want to download JDK/Java so that i can write programs (using a text editor), and then compile them with java compilator, and also run them. With Windows...

    But i don't know how to download right files to do this, and installion instructions.
    There are so many variants of Java JDK it seems that i am confused about it.

    I see only two downloads for windows: x86 and x64. Since you have a 32-bit OS, you need the x86.

    Yes, sorry i thought x86 meant 86-bit (i am not good with computers overall).

    But i downloaded it.

    Now i have a problem:

    when i compile a test program. "Javac Test.java" i am told the file is not found bla bla.

    I set the javac Path, but what else must i do?

    It should say
    'javac' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
    operable program or batch file.
    if your paths are wrong.

    Are you in the correct directory when you try to do javac ?

    I found a excellent video on Youtube that helped me.

    I used cd \ to go to directory, and then i compiled the program and it worked.

    In Linux Redhat i didn't have to go to the directory.
    I just entered "javac Test.java", and the job was done :p

    Anyhow now i have a question: i need to get the package Java.util - How do i find that package?

    Java SE has a package: java.util is that the one you are looking for?
    Java is case sensitive.
    If you don't understand my response, don't ignore it, ask a question.
