javac: Command not found

Hello Everyone,

I just installed java j2sdk1.4.2_05 and j2re1.4.2_05 on Fedora 2 Linux using rpm utility. My java files are stored here:
       1.     /usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_05
       2.     /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_05

When I do javac or java, I get this error:
        bash: javac: command not found.
        bash: java: command not found.

I have changed the CLASSPATH variable as:
export CLASSPATH:$CLASSPATH:/usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_05/bin/javac:/usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_05/bin/java

I know there is alot of online help available but I am still not able to run my application. I think I haven't actally understood what I need to do. Can someone throw some light?

Thanks for any help.

YOu need to set the path as well

PATH=/user/java/j2sdk1.4.2_05/bin:$PATH

Hi seemasharma22,

Try setting the path to the Java directory also, not too good at BASH, but might be this:

export PATH:$PATH:/usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_05/bin/javac:/usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_05/bin/java

Regards,

If you want to do that in your .bashrc, you should do something like

EXPORT JAVA_HOME=/user/java/j2sdk1.4.2_05
EXPORT PATH=$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH
