Hi folks,
I have installed JDK 1.5, and I am not able to run the server JVM.

when I execute the command java -server ServerClass.class so i got the following error.

Error: no `server' JVM at `C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.5.0_06\bin\server\jvm.dll'

Any thoughts..

You are using the JRE (not the JDK) to run your Java program. It looks like the server VM is not included in the JRE, only in the JDK.

Make sure you add C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0_06\bin to your PATH environment variable instead of C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.5.0_06\bin, so that you're running your program with the JDK instead of the JRE.

If you look in C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0_06\jre\bin, you'll see that there are two directories (client and server), while the C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.5.0_06\bin just has one directory (client).

thanks i got what you said.. I guess i only have client JVM. As there is no server folder in the JDK.

 It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
