This is how i have set my class path
set path=%path%;c:/jdk1.2.1/bin;
set classpath=%path%;c:/jdk1.2.1/lib;
It works pretty well, but some times it give me errors saying that " The classpath is having spaces and some tools will not be working ".
Pls some help me

Hi Upul,
I have had some classpath problems too but i find that the following method of compiling works best for me

c:\java>javac -classpath .
to execute,
c:\java>java -classpath . MyProgram
Of course, as soon as i start working in Java
i set the path (i work in jdk1.3)
c:\java>set path=%path%;c:\jdk1.3\bin
Hope this helps.

I agree. Here's the link:
