JAVA_HOME and PATH environment variables set. "C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_01"
on the following directory.."C:\SCWCD\beerV1\src\com\example\web\" there exists a file called BeerSelect.java
when I issue the javac command in the above directory as "javac BeerSelect.java"..I get the "javac not recognized as an internal external command.." error message. However, if I move the java file to the bin directory in "C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_01", I do not get the javac not recognized error.
Did you open a new cmd prompt after setting the PATH variable under the System Variables? Note that PATH should point to the bin directory of the Java 7 installation folder and better append it in the beginning of the PATH configuration.
