If you get that error, you need to set your PATH. It is explained in the link Christophe posted earlier.

Go to your Java install directory and then the bin directory. Then type java -version. It should print the java version. You can add that directory to your path environment variable which allows you to access Java from anywhere on your pc.

Hi..Thanks for the help...I created new variable called "path" and gave the complete bin location as the value. It worked!
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
