The Java 2 Standard Edition (JDK) 1.3
This course requires version 1.3 of the Java 2 Standard Edition, also known as J2SE 1.3 or JDK 1.3. It can be installed from the course CD as follows: 1. Execute the install EXE for the JDK from the Required Software\Java JDK1.3 folder the course CD. Follow the prompts to install in a suitable directory. 2. Prepend the bin subdirectory underneath the JDK home directory to the PATH environment variable. For example, if you installed the JDK to c:\jdk1.3, prepend c:\jdk1.3\bin to the DOS PATH.

Testing the JDK Installation
To test a command line application, go to a command window and run the following command exactly as written (it is case sensitive):
java java.lang.String

 If you get the message Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: main, everything is fine.  If you get a message indicating that “java” is not recognized (such as Bad command or file name), check the PATH setting to be sure that the bin directory under the JDK installation is in the PATH.  If you get the message Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: String, there is a problem with the setting of the CLASSPATH environment variable. Try the command again as follows:
java -classpath . java.lang.String

If this solves the problem, then delete the current CLASSPATH environment variable. If not, contact the course vendor to further diagnose the problem.

The Java JDK 1.3 Documentation
If the student machines have Internet access, the students can browse the documentation online at: http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.3/docs/api/index.html If not, do the following: 1. Locate the ZIP file for the JDK documentation in the Required Software\JDK API 1.3 Documentation folder on the course CD.

Java 2 Enterprise Edition Software 1.3
This course requires version 1.3 of the Java 2 Enterprise Edition. It can be installed from the course CD. Execute the install EXE for the J2EE from the course CD. Follow the prompts to install in a suitable directory.

Java 2 Enterprise Edition 1.3 Documentation
If the student machines have Internet access, the students can browse the documentation online at: http://java.sun.com/j2ee/tutorial/api/index.html. If not, execute the install EXE for the J2EE documentation from the course CD. Follow the prompts to install in a doc directory underneath the J2EE home directory

Seminar Files
The seminar files consist of examples and various demo applications. They are provided on the course CD in the form of a self-extracting zip file that will create a seminar directory and subdirectories. To install the files on Windows machines: 1. Locate the setup EXE in the Required Software\Seminar Setup Files folder on the course CD (Java21Century 3.0 Setup.EXE). Execute the EXE. 2. The Winzip dialog box will appear. You may enter the the desired drive and directory, but if possible, use the default directory (c:\ JavaPresentation) that is already entered for you. Then click Unzip. The files will expand to the named directory on the chosen drive. 3. Close the dialog box.

Text Editor
This course requires a programmer’s text editor. If no other editor is already installed, install Textpad for Windows from the course CD as follows:
