I got Java EE finally working and I am now trying to compile a program.
I am on windows 8 64 bit.
I open command prompt and navigate into the subfolder scr, which has the file, filename.java in it.
I type javac filename.java and when I hit enter I receive an error message saying javac is not recognized.

Do I need to download something else to compile programs?

Lloyd,

Eclipse compiles it for you automatically There's no need to do anything
on the command line.

I suggest you open the Help Contents and look at some of the Getting Started guides in the Java development user guide section.
