I was hoping someone could help me. I am new to programming and working on an assignment for class. As instructed, I downloaded the jdk1.7.0_51 and executed it. Now I am to write some code in notepad++ (which I did word-for-word), then go the the command prompt and enter:
javac FileName.java > was supposed to create a "."FileName.class" file & didn't. Instead, when i execute this I get an error saying: "'javac' is not a recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file."
Then I needed to create the HTML part of the file (did as directed) and went to the command prompt again to enter:
appletviewer FileName.html > and I get pretty much the same reply just not recognizing the appletviewer.
I have tried to uninstall/reinstall a few times and have tried updating the jdk1.7.0_51, always getting the same response.
Any advise would be appreciated.
It only addresses the "javac is not recognized..." issue. If this step fails, you will never get anything working, even if you correctly execute the next steps.
Edit: The appletviewer will also become accessible by doing this.
