i got an brain friendly guide head first java book... on page xxviii it says that i have to install API and Java 2 standard edtition and i have done that. In step 4 it says something about a path. i dont get it can i get some help.
I am 11 years old got a pretty good english my cousin is programming a game with eclipse and he was the one that inspired me to start with java i have always liked computers and wanted to know how they work..
Please dont comment '' Kid get out of here'' or '' you are to young for this !''
We have a link of our own, and it is bound to be better. () Here. Note there are several ways to set the PATH, and the Oracle installation instructions (I think §4) shows something slightly different. You are probably better off putting the JDK installation path at the beginning of the PATH than the end. And make sure to install the JDK not the JRE. And SE (=standard edition) not EE or ME.
thanks for all the help but it is too hard for me to learn from this book i really epriciated all the help... But do you know any easier youtube java tutorials ? for beginners?

HFJ is designed to be easy to read. Let’s take it really slowly.
Have you got your Java runtime working? and the compiler? What happens when you give the following instructions at the command line?
You should get an output like this
[campbell@localhost java]$ java -version
java version "1.7.0_13"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_13-b20)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.7-b01, mixed mode)
[campbell@localhost java]$ javac -version
