Setting the system CLASSPATH is only useful if you are using the command line. Even then, it isn't typically necessary when you are beginning to learn the language. If you are using NetBeans, you probably don't need to bother either since it uses its own internal CLASSPATH and ignores the system's altogether. If you need specific help with NetBeans, you should visit our IDE forum.
