RE: Help finding javac (java compiler) on WinXP



fixed

Dan, the "Java 1.5" you have on your machine is a JRE (Java Runtime 
Environment). And since it's a runtime environment, it can only run existing 
Java code. It doesn't include the javac compiler. What you need is the JDK 
(Java Development Kit). You can download that here:

http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/download.jsp

by clicking on the link "Download JDK 5.0 Update 5".

Subject: Help finding javac (java compiler) on WinXP

(Preface: I'm very much a newbie with Java.)

Where do I find and how do I install javac.exe for WinXP?
