you got to set your path variable.

From dosprompt

c:>set path=%path%;C:\j2sdk1.4.2_10\bin

JAVA_HOME variable should point to the root of JDK.

U can set the Path variable in Enviornment Variable also.That way u dont have to set path variable each time in command promt.

One Disadvantage is if u use multiple installation of JDK, u wont be able to configure it dynamically.
