Hello all, I have litte doubt on classpath setting. In my assignemnt I have created two folders named client and server, In my README.txt I have documented that the user has to copy those folders to desired locations and run the program from that location. for eaxmple in Windows os if copy client folder to a directory called clienthome my client will be started as follows c:\clienthome\client>java -jar client.jar client.jar is provided in side client folder. By using this way user does not need to set any classpath variables. But he has to run it withing the client folder as shown. (server can also be started in similar fashion) I want to know whether this approach is acceptable. I appreciate one if u can respond me quickly. Plesae help me I am about to upload this. Thanx in Advance Prabodha Gunawardena
Did you set system classpath to the %JDK%\lib directory but without your program directory? The jvm will add current directory to your classpath, so, you only can run the program in the client directory.
