Could you be more specific?

Are you getting "javac is not a recognized program" or something like that, or are you geting a NoClassDefFoundError?

javac is not a recognized as an internal or external command, operable or batch file . I have set the path as C:\Program Files\java\jre1.5.0_06\bin; and classpath also.

The JRE does not contain javac. You need to download the JDK.

Well if you only have the JRE, you won't be able to compile programs. You need to download the JDK. You can find the latest version at java.sun.com
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
