classpath issue

Im new to EJB. I was trying to compile the AdviveBean in the K&B, when I received a message
package javax.ejb.* doesnt exist. so I read that having the following line in my classpath while compiling would make it work. "javac -cp c:\j2ee1.4\lib\j2ee.jar" And it did.

But when I try set it as an environ variable. I again get the original error. I have two questions now
1. How can I set it up so that I wont have to type javac -cp.... again?
2. What does the .jar file have to do with all this?

Can you write down the procedure, how you tried to set the environment variable for CLASSPATH? Hope some output can come out of it..

HI thanks Ive gotten it. I had made the mistake of adding a space between 'Path' and '='.

javac doesn't take a -cp parameter, only a -classpath parameter.
In that it's different from java, which accepts either.

I agree. Here's the link:
