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.

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,
Zyloch

YOu need to set the path as well

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

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
