Hi All Java Guru,

I have just enrolled an online Java course (very beginning). My first excercise is to compile the first few lines of code through dos. And of course, I am getting a bad command or file name error. I think that I have installed JDK correctly, but what I didn't do correctly is in the Autobat.bat? I followed the instructions from the course to go in the autobat.bat and add the following lines:

SET CLASSPATH=.;c:\jdk11\lib\classes.zip

And my file name is save under c:\jdk11\BigDebt.java



RE: Beginner

Three things -- 1) Make sure you specified the .java extension when you typed "javac BigDebt.java", 2) make sure your class declaration is BigDebt and not bigdebt, 3) if you specified a package mke sure you put you .java in a corrisponding directory structure.
