Check installed JAVA : which javac or locate javac or find / -name javac

Set CLASSPATH variable :
export CLASSPATH=<your specified path>

when i installed the sun jdk or sdk I had to manually make the system lnks manually you need to make a system link from /usr/java/bin to /usr/bin and the systems links you need to amke are javac (if you have installed the jdk) and java (needed for both the jre and jdk).

the when you do java -version and javac -version in a terminal it will tlel you if it has install ok.

I had to do the abopve when I was using mandriva.
