Hi everyone. This is as novice as it gets. I'm just starting my journey down the Java 2 road and I need to compile my first example. Its not working. I am running windows 98 and created my .java file in homesite and trying to use javac under JDK 1.3.1. I choose "Run" from the "Start" menu and type "javac MyFirstApplet.java" like the book tells me to. I then get an error that says "Cannot find the file 'javac'(or one of its components). Make sure the path and filename are correct and that all required libraries are available." I have tried changing the path to many different things. Please. Anyone know whats goin on?? If you think this question is worth more, please tell me. Thank you.
