If my machine class path is

C:\WDSC\JAVA;.;C:\WDSC\sdk;C:\Program Files\Ibm\Client Access\jt400\lib\uitools.jar;C:\Program Files\Ibm\Client Access\jt400\lib\jui400.jar;C:\Program Files\Ibm\Client Access\jt400\lib\data400.jar;C:\Program Files\Ibm\Client Access\jt400\lib\util400.jar;C:\Program Files\Ibm\Client Access\jt400\jre\lib\jhall.jar;C:\Program Files\IBM\Client Access\jt400\lib\x4j400.jar;C:\Program Files\IBM\Client Access\jt400\lib\jt400.jar;C:\Program Files\IBM\Client Access\jt400\lib\reportwriter.jar;C:\Program Files\IBM\Client Access\jt400\lib\composer.jar;C:\Program Files\IBM\Client Access\jt400\lib\outputwriters.jar;C:\Program Files\IBM\Client Access\jt400\lib\jasperreports.jar;C:\Program Files\IBM\Client Access\jt400\lib\JRtest1.jasper

And the javac is located in the c:\WDSC\sdk\bin folder.

Shouldn't I be able to call the javac from any directory command line?

Is "c:\WDSC\sdk\bin" part of your PATH?? if yes then is it correct that you should call javac from any folder.

Yes before you need to add ;c:\WDSC\sdk\bin

and yes you need to add the semi-colon in there to tell the path that this is a seperate directory from the one before it. Currently Your path does not have the c:\WDSC\sdk\bin in it yet.

I'm not sure if this was made clear, but it's the PATH variable that should contain javac's location. The CLASSPATH is an entirely different thing.
