hi guys! I am new user of this site as well as new student of J2ee. I am not able set path for J2EE technologies ? can any one tell me how can i set Environment variables(CLASSPATH,PATH..etc)? I hope you can do this help. any way advance thanks to you.
Well you can set some environment variables like JAVA_HOME and include it in the PATH environment variable like %JAVA_HOME%\bin.
But you do not want to create an environment variable called CLASSPATH. Why? Because it is considered bad form. What happens is this, there are lots of applications that need Java out there, and if you have your CLASSPATH set, then it might make those other programs not work, and the other way around.
So your classpath should be set at "runtime" meaning at the command line when you start up your app. As a command line argument for Java.exe like "java -cp"
Or if you open a seperate command window, you can set a local to that command window variable.
So for j2ee, just when running your app have java -cp somewhere\j2ee.jar
