Running a JAVA program

Hi. I have Downloaded all the necesarry JAVA files I need. the SDK one I needed I downloaded. Now, (since I'm learning JAVA in school) I created a ".java" file but it doesn't execute using javac.exe or java.exe through the command prompt. I know this is probably been discussed on the homepage, But all I want to know is what I have to do (since I have the necesarry files) to compile and run a java programs. a step by step procedure would be helpful. Thanks.

This is not an answer but advice.

You should consider downloading NetBeans from www.netbeans.org, or if you don't like IDE's, at least something like TextPad from www.textpad.com that can call the compiler for you. Especially earlier on in your learning career, NetBeans will be extremely useful for managing packages and error tracing. You have to pay for textpad, but NetBeans is 100% free.

All I had to do was set the path variable to something like "C:\j2sdk1.4.2_06\bin". Now it's permanent. Thanks a many zzynx.
