Hello,

I recently installed Java on a SuSE 64 bit Linux box. I tried both with: jre-7u4-linux-x64.rpm and with jre-7u5-linux-x64.tar.gz. In both cases I was unable to find the "javac" command to compile my programs.

Has this command become deprecated ? If so what is the new command to compile a java program. This is what I have in my /usr/java/jre1.7.0_05/bin directory:
