Please explain the difference between PATH and CLASSPATH, which I guess is two different things I need to enter in my Environment Variables in my OS (Win98). I have downloaded and installed jdk1.2.2, and am going to be using Textpad. What is the purpose of these, how do they differ, and how do I set them up? Thanks, Rob
PATH: is where you will find your exectuables, eg javac.exe CLASSPATH: is where java looks for your *.class files (compiled *.java files) You can set them at the DOS prompt by typing this: PATH = %PATH%;C:/JDK/BIN; and SET CLASSPATH = %CLASSPATH%;D:/MyClasses;C/.;
