You are facing this problem, because javac is not in your system classpath. You can put javac and all related utilities by setting the system path. If you are using Windows NT, the steps for the same are, 1) Click on Start Menu --> Settings --> Control Panel 2) In control panel, click on System Icon 3) Click on Environment Tab 4) Click on Path Variable, in the variable lists. 5) Edit the path value by appending in your path of jdk --> bin directory For Eg. if you have installed jdk1.4.0 in your d:\ You will add D:\j2sdk1.4.0\bin;D:\j2sdk1.4.0\lib in your path value textbox.
I hope that this will solve your problem.

Let's correct a slight misconception... Note that the classpath and path setting are seperate concepts. The classpath setting does not care about the location of javac. The CLASSPATH setting tells javac or java where to find necessary class files to compile and run java programs. The PATH setting tells the computer where to find necessary program files such as javac and java (and other executables) in order to run various programs.
