Next, are you certain it's the CLASSPATH you want to set? Generally, this is not the case. What are you trying? And what errors are you getting?
(In the meantime, see this thread for a Mac "Hello World" example.)

It's important for you to know, "where" your Java files are saved.
The easiest way I compile my files is:
3. I compile my Java file: javac example.java
4. I run my Java file: java example
You can also compile your files from your home directory using the whole path to the file, but I think it�s much quicker and easier to change into the directory and stay there for compiling and executing your Java files.
