Trouble finding javac.exe

Posted on 2006-12-01

I downloaded an SDK from motodev.com: iDEN SDK for J2ME (MIDP 2_0)

I installed it and am attempting to build the Hello World project.  I get this error and have already added javac.exe to the path, but to no avail.

Any ideas what the problem could be?

Thanks a lot in advance for the help!
Bob


start building...
compile C:\Motorola\HelloWorld.java...
javac.exe is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file2.

Open a command line to the directory in which the file 'javac.exe' is found (it shoudl be in the folder where your path is set, if the path is setup correctly).

From there, type 'javac' - you should get a spit back of the usage options.

then try 'javac C:\Motorola\HelloWorld.java' to compile your application.

good.  It attempted to compile and got 10 errors.

That puts me back on track.

Thanks,
Bob
