APPENDIX


The following PATH variable settings are not required under normal installation
conditions. However you may try the following in case you face any issues installing
Java.
If you are using WindowsXP, follow instructions under XP Path Setting. If you are using Windows Vista, follow
instructions under Vista Path setting
Windows XP Path Variable Setting

1. At the left bottom corner of your computer desktop, choose Start -> Setting -> Control
Panel, and double-click System
2. On Microsoft Windows NT, select the Environment tab; on Microsoft Windows
2000/XP select the Advanced tab and then Environment Variables.
3. For either User variables or System variables, click New and in the popup window, enter
Variable name as CLASSPATH (note that all letters should be capital), and the directory
where your JSDK is installed as the Variable value.
For example:
If your JSDK is installed at: C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_04
Put the following line as the value:
C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_04\bin; C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_04\jre\bin;
The first is where the java compiler 'javac' is, the second is the java run time environment
'java' is, and the final '.' denotes your working directory, so that the compiler and jre will find
where your programs are. To be safe, you may also want to append the above line to then
end of your PATH variable. Use ';' as the separator.
Save the variables, test the setting by opening a DOS prompt, type in
echo %CLASSPATH%
If your environment variables are set correctly, you should see your settings.
Or, you can just type in
javac
java
If your PATH and CLASSPATH is correct, windows should recognize those commands.
You do NOT need to restart your computer when installing Java.
• Check whether TextPad and Java SDK work on your computer
o Download
HelloWorld.java
available in the Syllabus section at the class website
into your local drive. Be sure that filename is case sensetive in JAVA
programming.
o Start TextPad, and open this HelloWorld.java file.
o Click menu "Tools" ---> "Compile Java" to compile java file.
o Click menu "Tools" ---> "Run Java Application" to run this file.
If you see "Hello World" in a DOS PROMPT window, that means there is no problem
with your TextPad to compile/run Java program. Congratulations. You can start your
java programming now. If you see some errors when run Java program, please click
here
to get more information.
