I installed java redhat Linux7.0 on my pc and checked for the version number.It showed 1.1. This had come as a package with the Linux CD. Now I want to debug a Java Program using jdb command. But when I say "jdb -debug xx.class" or "jdb -debug xx" or "jdb -debug xx.java" ,it gives class not found exception. and shows some path sun/tools/tty/TTDEBUG and says the above error.please let me know the procedure for using the java debugger. I also have "kaffe" on the system. Thanks.

RedHat Linux 7 comes with the Kaffe Java runtime system. I generally recommend that anyone who intends to actually develop Java software install the latest full Java 2 SDK from Sun. I'm pretty sure it is available as a rpm for simple installation on Linux. Sun's SDK 1.3 not only comes with all these "sun" classes, but is also typically 4 times faster in operation than Kaffe.
