- Path setting is of two types : temporary path setting and permanent path setting.
- For beginners who are excited to compile and run their first “HelloWorld” program , we would like to say please take care of path and classpath setting. Most of the beginners will try to compile and run their first programs through command prompt. so setting up a path and classpath in command prompt is temporary.
- Whenever you are system restarts , you’re path setting will be destroyed which you have set before , this is called temporary path setting. You have to set the every time the system restarts which is very complex.
- Permanent path setting is done by environment variables , even you’re system restarts the path will be same.
