Javax is a package containg java extensions, such as swing and java 3d. With
the latest releases of the java sdk this should be included automatically in
the default classpath.

You can add it on the compiler and vm command lines using the -classpath
switch, which you have to do each time. Adding it in an environment variable
includes the element all the time. You can also make a script, such as that
provided with the book examples, to compile and run with a particular set of
classpath elements.
