Hello every one-
this is my first time in this forum and first time in life to learn Java programming language. Hope I will have a fun and support from all community people here.
first of all I would like to discuss two issues here.
I landed on oracle website where I found beginners tutorial for Java. Link is this one.
Trail: Getting Started (The Java™ Tutorials)
Then I went to Install the Java 7. I am not sure if the Java was installed correctly or not. I could not find the Java Webstart on my desktop either.
My first question is doesn't Java has a Integrated Development environment like Visual Studio ?
anyways I went ahead and tried to compile my first HelloWorldApp.Java using command prompt with the help of instructions given on this page "Hello World!" for Microsoft Windows (The Java™ Tutorials > Getting Started > The "Hello World!" Application)
but I am getting the usual error JavaC is not recognized as an internal command. I even found the solution to the problem on the same website but it says I need to provide absolute path each time in order for the compiler to recognize javac as a command. and I think my Java directory was created inside the C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0\bin.
It seems weird every time typing all that absolute path and saving all my programs in this directory. I am sure there is a solution to this problem. I dont want to move forward without having all the installation correctly.
I would appreciate if you can help me installing and making sure I have all the environment built up before I start my Journey of Java.
Thank you for your help.
