I took a java programming class 2 years ago, and I forgot what to download...

I remember using javac and appletviewer on the DOS prompt.

What do I download from sun?

I downloaded it, installed it and couldn't find javac on my HD.  Is it something new now?

Why You Should Analyze Threat Actor TTPs

After years of analyzing threat actor behavior, it’s become clear that at any given time there are specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that are particularly prevalent. By analyzing and understanding these TTPs, you can dramatically enhance your security program.

First, did you download the JRE or the SDK? The JRE (Java Runtime Environment) does not include development tools like javac, javap, javah, jar, etc. The SDK does. So check which you downloaded. Here's a link to the page again (corrected from above):
    http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4/download.html

Second, did you follow the installation instructions? If you installed the SDK but didn't set your PATH variable per the instructions then javac won't be found when invoked from the command prompt. Here's a link to the install instructions:
    http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4/install-windows.html

you need to download SDK
goto the address below http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4/download.html

then click download SDK (Windows all Languages) not JRE
this is the latest version of J2SDK

When installing SDK remember the path where you install.
if you install in c:\ then your java directory will be probably c:\j2se\
depends on what you name the folder name in c:\ directory
java, javac all tools are with in bin folder (c:\j2se\bin)

kool!!

And you installed the SDK, right? If you navigate from "My Computer" to the folder where you installed the software, do you have a bin folder? That is where javac.exe should live. For example, I installed using the defaults for 1.3 so my installation is at C:\jdk1.3 and javac.exe is in C:\jdk1.3\bin.

I just uninstalled 1.4 and downloaded 1.2.2 and it works fine.  Thanks.

Maybe javac isn't included with 1.4?  Oh well
