I am beginner of java.
For running java code we want to set path (path=%path%;c:/jdk1.2/bin)
this for calling java classes from any directory.
For running java servlet(jsdk) we want to set path as well as class path.
1.what is classpath?
2.why we want to set classpath?
3.how to set classpath for servlet?
4.why we don't set for jdk?
Re: java path
CLASSPATH is an environmental used by your JAVA RUNTIME ENVIRONMENT to locate
classes which are not part of the JDK Installation.
Servlets related classes are not part of Standard JDK1.2 so we need to add
references to it since it is contained in an external jar file JSDK.JAR;.
For Servlets locate the path for JSDK.JAR in your JSDK Installation and add
it to the CLASSPATH
For JDK we don't need to set the path because the standard installation knows
exactly where to find the standard library classes which will be normally
inside lib directory of your JDK HOME
I would suggest to use TOMCAT Server to try servlets & jsp
