I know what a Jar file is. http://java.sun.com/developer/Books/javaprogramming/JAR/basics/build.html

I just can't figure out how to get it to be recognized as a command.

I have the same problem with appletviewer. I was told i was suppose to to set some path but i am not sure where it is.

I'm sorry but I am Newbie. Please have patience with me.

I was told i was suppose to to set some path but i am not sure where it is.

In the command prompt type: set path=%path%;<java_home>/bin; The <java_home> is the path/directory where the java was installed.

For example, the java is installed in C:\java,

The java_home is C:\java and the path is c:\java\bin.
