Hi Java Experts,

I have installed jdk1.2.2 under winXP environment.
The installation was successfully.
however, the java doesn't work.
for example, there is no response when I type "java" in the command prompt.

What should I do?

Best Regards,
Bessie

You need to put the Java installation directory + bin on your path

Run it from C:\jdk1.2.2\bin or add C:\jdk1.2.2\bin to your PATH environment variable.

BTW if you installed just for learning, practicing, etc - try Java 5.0

e.g. if you installed in

C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.2.2

you need to append


C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.2.2\bin

to your path

I prefer setting JAVA_HOME to C:\jdk1.2.2 (or whatever) and then pre-pend %JAVA_HOME%\bin in the PATH (not append, because sometimes things like Oracle install their own JVM and come earlier in the Path, causing a menace :) )

As already stated it seems that you need to set the path, for more info on what "path" is have a look here: http://mindprod.com/jgloss/path.html
