A binary executable, such as java.exe and javac.exe, would be put in the \bin directory, and that directory should be in your path statement. Was the file that you downloaded INTENDED to be unzipped? As a rule class files should be in some directory that is named in your classpath, so that any application can use them. There are decompilers availabe to turn class files into source. Do a google search.
