    get the command console to recognice javac
    You need to tell the OS where the javac command is located. One way is to use the full path:
    D:\Java\jdk1.7.0.7\bin\javac.exe -cp . -Xlint Some.java

    Another is to set the environment PATH variable with the path to the bin holding the javac command.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
