Hi,

I want to add a few jar files to my class path. Can somebody tell me how to do it and how do people working in a company usually do this?/ I am not using Eclipse or any other IDE. I have my Java path set up in the environmaental variable 'PATH' in My Computer Properties.

Thanks.

Just add the absolute location of your jar file to the CLASSPATH.
That would do
