Problem with Java-SDK

I use Suse 9.1 and I've installed the Java-SDK with the Suse Linux-CD. But when I use the command javac for compiling a java-file, the bash doesn't find the command. What have I done wrong?
Thanks for your help!

Hello and welcome to Linuxquestions!

Try the hole path to javac
/path/of/java/javac file
You can put this in your /etc/bashrc file...

export PATH

Now each time you open a terminal it should see javac in your path.

boby is correct, you need to set the path in /etc/bashrc or /etc/profile. But I'd put the path to the "bin" directory that contains javac, since that directory also contains java, jar... you might need those later.

export PATH=$PATH:<java home>/bin
