The classpath must include each of the jars as well as the directory(s)
that contains classes. Here's a classpath from my pc. The elements in
the list are separated by semicolons.

.;C:\PROGRA~1\IBM\SQLLIB\java\db2java.zip;C:\PROGRA~1\IBM\SQLLIB\java\db
2jcc.jar;C:\PROGRA~1\IBM\SQLLIB\java\db2jcc_license_cu.jar;C:\PROGRA~1\I
BM\SQLLIB\bin;C:\PROGRA~1\IBM\SQLLIB\java\common.jar

Yours on the 400 should be something like this:

.;/home/FOXWELL/java/jars/POI-3.0.1-FINAL-20070705.JAR;/home/FOXWELL/jav
a/jars/POI-CONTRIB-3.0.1-FINAL-20070705.JAR;/home/FOXWELL/java/jars/POI-
SCRATCHPAD-3.0.1-FINAL-20070705.JAR

The path to the jvm and it's classes/jars is covered by your JAVA_HOME
environment variable. (JAVA_HOME can be overridden in a number of ways.)

Subject: Starting off with POI/HSSF

Hope everyone will bear with this newbie. I'm restarting this thread as
I haven't understood the replies up til now.


If I have placed the following jar files :

POI-3.0.1-FINAL-20070705.JAR
POI-CONTRIB-3.0.1-FINAL-20070705.JAR
POI-SCRATCHPAD-3.0.1-FINAL-20070705.JAR

in the directory /home/FOXWELL/java/jars what is the syntax to set my
classpath?

When I sign on, my current directory is /home/FOXWELL. I don't know if
that makes a difference to what is set in the classpath.

Thanks.
