OUr application is run on the JDK environment. We specify the java classpath.
Our client questions us why the applicatin cannot be run on the JRE environment.

NOtes. some jar files are downloaded from other web sites, such as Oracle, Hibernate,etc.

In sun web site, the file we download for jre is a .exe file. not a file version. In this case, how do i change the classpath and manually add external jar file to the classpath?

manually setting the classpath is not hard, you can do it at the command line using the SET command

1. Open a command prompt (start/run/cmd)
2. Type the following command (replace C:\wherevever\something\somewhere with the real path to your jars):

     set CLASSPATH=%CLASSPATH%;C:\wherevever\something\somewhere

OR you can do it through a GUI:

1. On your keyboard, hit "Windows Key" + "Break"
2. Go to the "Advanced" tab.
3. Click on "Environment Variables"
4. Double-click CLASSPATH and make your changes.
