Folks, i've been cheating. I've been doing all my Java dsevelopment using JBuilder 6 Enterprise edition. Purely out of curiosity, I tried to run the basic Orion servlet page - as discussed here on javaranch.com. http://www.javaranch.com/drive/servlet/index.jsp It wouldn't work, and I figured it was/is something to do with not configuring the classpath in windows 98. Whenever I type:- cd \orion java -jar orion.jar (and after following all the necessary steps) - I get a bad command or filename error. So basically, not just for the sake of running servlets, but also running standalone applications from the DOS prompt, does anyone know how to set the classpath in windows 98?

Take a look at this thread and see if that works. Also, you can set the CLASSPATH on the command line with java -cp someClassPath .... You can also do it in the command shell (DOS Window) with SET CLASSPATH=someClassPath. Remember to separate the directories with ; semicolons. The latter two methods will not be permanent.
