    Default [SOLVED] Compile from the command line

    Hi all,

    I am trying to compile my first class from the cmd line

    I looked on the Sun site, and found instructions to modify the Environment variables

    I added:
    C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_<version>\bin to the path statement under System variables. I prececeeded with a semicolon to seperate from other items already in the path statement

    I still receive error message at the console:
    'javac' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file
    What might I be doing wrong?

    Thanks!
    Best regards,
    Winston

    Have you added it on "Path" or "path" variable?

    Thanks all

    I added to Path statement.
    I entered
    C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0<version>\bin
    Should have been
    C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0\bin
    Works great now!

    Thanks

    Thanks Eranga,

    I've searched around a bit and I do not see how to mark the thread solved.
    How do I do that?

    Thanks much,
    Winston
