Trying to simply compile a java program

Downloaded JDK 6 Update 16 with Java EE ( java_ee_sdk-5_07-jdk-6u16-windows.exe) the entire 161 megs. Does this have the javac.exe? I don't believe it does. If not then which download?
Thanks

    Oh I forgot to mention, here's the message I keep getting, I also am running under vista if that makes any difference.

    --------------------Configuration: Program0201 - <Default> - <Default>--------------------
    Error : Invalid path, \bin\javac.exe -source 1.5 -classpath "C:\Program Files\Xinox Software\JCreatorV4\MyProjects\Program0201" -d C:\Program" Files\Xinox "Software\JCreatorV4\MyProjects\Program0201 @src_program0201.txt"

    Process completed.

    All JDKs have the java compiler.
    I don't believe it does.
    The bizarre error message you posted doesn't suggest that. It suggests you are running a bizarre command line somehow.

    If so then where is javac.exe? Also I am using JCreator to compile. I installed JCreator from a cd that was supplied with the book I purchased, Java for Dummies. I apoligize if I have solicited in the wrong forum but I tried the java for beginners forum and tried every suggestion and failed.
    Thanks

    javac.exe is in $JDK_HOME/bin where JDK_HOME is where the installer put the JDK.

    I can't comment on JCreator or where it expects to find things or how it constructs command lines but that one is completely wrong.

    The installation put JDK_HOME in C:\Sun\SDK. But there is no javac.exe in C:\Sun\SDK\bin.
    This is quite a mystery.

    Installation? What installation? The Sun JDK or JCreator?
    If you are talking about the JCreator installation, try the JCreator forum.

    warnerja;

    I didn't know I was supposted to keep to one forum for help, I didn't see that rule anywhere. Is this forum for advanced users of Java? If so then should I not post here anymore? Otherwise I have another different question on compiling or should I post a new message for that? The question is why is access denied in the following message? I set access permissions on all files/directories but still get the Access is denied.
    Thanks

    The point was to alert other people who may be answering, that they should check the other place(s) to see if they are about to waste their time duplicating what has already been said. Too late though, the time wasting already happened!

    And that it is rude for you to crosspost, at least without providing link(s) to the other conversation(s), for the reason mentioned above. That should just be obvious.

    Am I supposed to grieve your loss?
    If you come to a place looking for help, and someone corrects your abuse of netiquette and you run away in a huff, believe me nobody in the forum loses anything. Only you do.

    Stay, go - no skin off my nose.
