I recently got the book How to Program Java and I'm trying to install the java 2 platform but, I not able to get to any of the examples in the book so I guessing I did something wrong. I had the Java Environment already on my pc but not the software development kit would that cause a problem? Should I uninstall everything first and then reinstall? I really don't want to do that because I have java applet that I use to keep up with my bills and stuff. So if there is a way to get it to work without doing would be great. My os is XP

You must install the development kit because it includes, among other tools, "javac" - the Java code compiler. You can install the J2SDK without interfering with the JRE you have already installed. If you install the SDK and are still having problems, post again, but include as much detail of the error as possible.
