This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I am very much interested in learning Java. I am practising lots of programs in my home. In office, in the free time I want to practise some progrmas. So that I downloaded the JDk 15. and I couldn't install it, due to administration doesn't allow it.
However, I succesffully installed it. I copied the JDK1.5 folder(which includes bin folder) from the home and copied in one of my folders in the office. While I am compiling and running the java files by keeping it in the bin folder, it it compiling and running.
I want to add the environment variable. Can I add that variable in Control Panel >> system >> advanced >> environment variables. Whether by adding the path, it will give any other problem to the system. We are using Windows XP professional Edition.
I want to practise some java programs in the free time without causing any damage or interrupt to the machine at office.
This is not really a Java question, but yes - as a regular (non-admin) user you should be able to change the user environmental variables but not the system ones. Add a path variable for your own user and it will be used in addition to the system PATH variable.
