    Default JMS Example + netbeans = won't compile

    Hi All,
    From within netbeans I can't compile the example code listed here:
    Writing Simple JMS Client Applications


    I get the error:
    D:\PhD\My Development\development\JMS Example\src\SimpleTopicPublisher.java:50: package javax.jms does not exist
    import javax.jms.*;

    I get that the compiler can't locate the JMS file, but to my understanding the JMS file should be part of the JDK that I downloaded.

    I get the high level stuff on how Pub/Sub works as I've written equivalent stuff in C++, I just can't figure out how to get JAVA to behave.

    Any help extremely welcome.

    Darryl

    JMS is not a standard Java package. You will need to add it to your classpath.

    Cool thanks for this.

    So my next questions are:
    1. Where is JMS located (part of swing)
    2. I'm on Win7 box, so does the above location go into Environment Variables -> classpath?

    Cheers
    Darryl

    It is located wherever you downloaded it. If you haven't downloaded it then you will need to.

    If you are using an IDE like Netbeans you should be able to right click on the project and add it to the properties somewhere.

    Cool,
    I've now grabbed the following:
    javax.jms.jar.zip
    jms-1_1-fr-apidocs.zip

    Is there a standard location that I should unzip these to so as to get started?

    Cheers
    Darryl

    You can put them anywhere you like. I strongly suggest NOT putting them in the bin directory of your Java installation.

    Is there a convention as to where these normally go?

    You said they can go anywhere so long as not in \bin.

    I'm asking if there is a convention (a common location most people use) as to where additional jars get parked.

    Also is there a location (or even a convention) that I should load the api docs so that I can easily integrate with the rest of the API?

    Regards
    Darryl

    "anywhere you like" kinda implies there is no convention. However for tidyness you might want to include it somewhere inside your project.
