Java in Wim XP

  Asked By: Joel    Date: Dec 03    Category: Java    Views: 550

I was wondering if anyone can help me with regards to setting up jdk
1.3 or 1.4 program in windows XP. I have installed TEXT pad, but
unable to run some of the programms i have created.
Moreover in XP i dont even know where the MSDOS screen is.
Can anyone help and show me step by step on how to do this, or is
there any other program i can use to run my java files.

I would assume that the java  sdk is instaled in c:\j2sdk1.4.0\ on your
system. First off, you need to set your path to point to
c:\j2sdk1.4.0\bin\ (or whereever the java.exe and javac.exe is).

Next when your in an msdos screen, you can compile a program  with
'javac programname.java' and then execute it with 'java programname'

That's pretty much all you should need.
