I'd like some clarification on the above

Here is my CLASSPATH found in
ControlPanels->System->Environmental Variables

"C:\Program Files\Java\j2re1.4.0_01\lib\ext\QTJava.zip"

The dir in which I store my java apps is "C:\JavaProjects"

Would I then edit my CLASSPATH to read as one of the

"C:\Program Files\Java\j2re1.4.0_01\lib\ext\QTJava.zip";C:\JavaProjects


 "C:\Program Files\Java\j2re1.4.0_01\lib\ext\QTJava.zip";.

Neither seems to work for me. Unless I specify -classpath
explicitly when I issue the java command, I get the previous
