Javac

What happened to javac in the sdk 1.5 build 6?  I used to command line build java files with javac X.java.  What should I use instead?

Oh yes, what happened to jar?  I used to jar -tvf X.jar to verify class files.

thats the jdk, are you sure that it was installed in that directory and not somewhere else.
Default is to put it in Program Files

Well, I don't have access to the link you posted. Anyways, I strongly support objects. It's actually
a JRE you've installed in disguise of a JDK. Recheck that.

Also, where are you running your application from? You might need to add the JDK\bin directory to your PATH if you are running it from some other directory (better set JAVA_HOME environment variable to the JDK directory and SET PATH=%JAVA_HOME%\bin;%PATH%)
