This indicates that the library in question is an extension (hence x) to the standard API. Such libraries should be placed in <JAVA_HOME>/jre/lib/ext, then there are no classpath problems.

but i tested if my jdk has the javax packages within its lib by trying to import some javax in some sample program, but it gave the same as expected error that, package javax.-- and so on does not exist..!
So i did lots of googling about where to get it, but in vein..people dont seem to be clear with their minds even with jre,jdk,sdk etc terminology.
Can u plz suggest how to get them or which version will support them?

Thanks & Regards
