Have you looking into
java.sun.com for setting up your environment before
you download the package? It will describe how to set
up the proper system path for the package very from
each operating system in such a way the computer could
differentiate your works from the system works.

i think you should download
j2re-1_4_1_01-windows-i586 from sun  website
and install it.

Ok, just done that, when i try and compile now i get
"Registry Key 'software\javasoft\java runtime environment\current
version' has value '1.4' but '1.3' is required.
Error: could not find java.dll
Error: could not find java  2 runtime environment."

i cant uderstand this, because java.dll at least was in the folder i

I think you got trouble with PATH ... may be your java  refering to wrong

my recommendation :
use Linux :P
if you want Window$, try Win2000 it's more stable than XP ... (I hate XP)

Answer #7    Answered By: Alvin Nguyen     Answered On: Jul 30

XP Pro will work  fine, the system path set up similar
to Win 2K. But paid attention to your JSDK version,
XP do not like anything older 1.4.1.xx.

Check your System Path:
1. Click Open Settings/Control Panel/System
2. Select Advanced tab
3. Click Environment Variables/Path
4. Click Edit option

See if you have see something like the following:
*** C:\j2sdk1.4.x.xx\bin\;C:\j2sdk1.4.x.xx\lib\;
If not, please insert them in.

But if you download the JSDK bundle with SunOneStudio,
then you should see something like
you create the name

YOu should have java  Web Start on your desktop
environment, else check in the Control Panel for Java

If you prefer different IDE, then have the *** line

If you use Window notepad as your ide, then have the
*** in too.

Oh, have you remember to unzip the src for the
software to work.

If you prefer other OS beside Windows, then feel free
to do so. The more you know, the better as long as
you master them all.

Answer #8    Answered By: Jackson Bouchard     Answered On: Jul 30

what is the src and where do i unzip it? all i got was an
application that installed  jdk, nothing more.

Answer #9    Answered By: Isaac Williams     Answered On: Jul 30

src.zip is the zipped source code of the jdk. After
installed the jdk, open the jdk through window
explorer, unzip the src right into the application.
In that way the system will see the source codes and
you will have something to work  with.

Remembered you have the problem  with *.dll searching
for something but could not find it and thrown out an

Please check if you have all the following after
unzipped src.zip:

Before you attempt to write any code.

Answer #10    Answered By: Luki Fischer     Answered On: Jul 30

i searched my entire HDD and it couldnt find src.zip. im begining
to wonder if its trying to tell me something.

Answer #13    Answered By: Steve Boyd     Answered On: Jul 30

did you download it from java.sun.com or from your teacher ?
I downloaded from sun  & my JDK contain src.zip (it's big enough, +- 10MB)
btw, why you need java  src ?

Answer #14    Answered By: Raul Clark     Answered On: Jul 30

You only have half of the software. After you
download and installed....

Program Files\j2sdk1.4.1_02 and

Program Files\Java\jre1.4.1_02

Then you install your teacher materials and see what
the situation will look. I hope your teacher provided
you the CD. By any mean, talk to your teacher see if
your teacher have any different other intention.

Yes, i found that out. although i dont know why i was dl it from the
sun website and followed everything that i was told to do, yet still
i managed to stuff it up. I got a copy from a friend, and it has
everything that you have all been talking about, and it worked
perfectly the first time i tried to comple the things that have been
moving around my pc for about a month now.

I would just like to thank everyone for helping me, i truley thought
i was a lost cause.

an upgrade version.

Answer #18    Answered By: Tyrone Sanchez     Answered On: Jul 30

win98 is fine... linux is ok (a little bit slow in Swing App). BTW Adwin, what
goes wrong with XP+JDK?

Answer #19    Answered By: Jonathan Brown     Answered On: Jul 30

If your operation system is Windows, you can go to http://textpad.com/ and
download the text editor program  called "TextPad". This program can compile
and run java  as long as you have installed  the JDK. I use it when write and
compile my java.

Answer #23    Answered By: Janelle Evans     Answered On: Jul 30

I would suggest copy your existent applications, then
delete the whole darn java  thing. Log into
select the Tutorial and go from there.
