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.

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