"jre" is the Java Runtime Environment. It's not a single program, but a collection of library files, programs, documentation and much more.

If you get an error regarding "CLASSPATH", you may not have correctly set the $CLASSPATH environment variable.
This variable is used to tell the system where it can find your Java environment.

Try:
Code:
echo $CLASSPATH
for starters.

If that doesn't give you any result, try looking at the installation notes on Sun's java.com site.
http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp (for the latest Java version).

hi timmeke!
thanks for your response
i tried echo $CLASSPATH but nothing happened.
so, does it mean either java is not installed properly or classpath variable not defined properly. Any clue? suggestion....
Regards

To find out if you have installed Java, try:
Code:
whereis java
Those commands try to locate (you could try "locate" instead of "whereis" too) the java interpreter.
If Java is installed, the whereis command should print out something like
"/usr/bin/java"
If the whereis command can't locate the java interpreter, either $PATH is wrong or you don't have java installed.

You could also do:
Code:
ls -l /usr/java
since that's where java gets installed by default, I believe.
