JLink compile command

JLink compile command

I know this is pretty basic stuff, but I'm struggling to get off the
ground with JLink. In the docs when it talks about compiling the *.java
example programs, it shows the command 'javac *.java'. I don't seem to
have that command anywhere. I've loaded jre1.5.0_15 and I have a
c:\Program Files\Java\jre1.5.0_15\bin\ folder with a java.exe in it, but
not javac.exe. Can someone help me along?



Thanks, John

You're on the track. You just need the Java Development Kit download (jdk1.5._xx) instead of the JRE (Java Runtime Environment).

Agreed that you should download the JDK (any version 1.4.2 or higher) or even better an IDE
like NetBeans or Eclipse.


However, if you just want to "make it work" and you have the Intralink client available,
you can use Intralink's Java to compile your J-Link apps.


Here are the instructions:

Thank You! I figured it was something easy like that.

John, You need the JDK or Java Development Kit. The JRE is the runtime
environment which is included in the JDK.

javac will compile the .java files to binary .class files that will be
run with the java command.

Best regards,

Carl
