i'm trying to install j2ee 1.3 on my system. i'm using the Head First EJB to study for the SCBCD. according to instructions, i'm to set the J2EE_HOME and Path variables to the directory i installed it and the bin directly respectively, which i've done a million and one times but still not been able to run commands at the command prompt. this is the message i get when i try this.

'C:\Program' is not recognised as an intenal or external command, operable program or batch file.

what am i doing wrong? cos i don't even know where that 'C:\program' is coming from, cos i installed it in c:\j2eesdk1.3.1 and the environment variables reflect that. I can't use j2ee 1.4 cos the exam is on the 1.3 version.

Are there any other files or folders set in your classpath which are under C:\Program Files\...., The error could be the space in between "Program and Files". It might be the error. You either could replace it with Progra~1 or enclosing it in quotes like "C:\Program Files". This may be of some help to you.

hi, thanks for he tip. my J2SE installation was to C:\Program Files\... and after uninstalling and reinstalling to C:\Java\.. it worked. i think as u said it was the space between the "Program" and "Files" that was the problem.

However, i'm now getting a list of errors when i type "j2ee -verbose" beginning with

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/sun/corba/se/inte

and a host of other errors. Can anybody else give me any idea what this is about? i'll be very grateful.

I agree. Here's the link:
