According to my Java book, you download then install the jdk.

Well, I downloaded all files of this latest jdk1.70_09 to c:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_09

I also added this above path to the end of my system path statement.

Next, according to my book, I am supposed to install the jdk by running the executable file. The problem is, I hane NO .exe files in my
c:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_09 folder. they are all application files.

So how can run an execitable file that I don't have?

Please help me. Thank you.

I agree. Here's the link:
