Bash: Javac: Command not found

Hi Please I would like to know why I am getting the above error message when I want to compile in the console. Please see my code below, I'm wondering if I took out a symbol mistakenly or did something else wrong.

import java.io.Console;

public class Introductions {

public static void main(String[] args) {
    Console console = System.console();
    // Welcome to the Introductions program!  Your code goes below here
    console.printf("Hello my name is Ajoke");
    console.printf("Ajoke is learning how to write Java");

} }

The error that you see comes from the fact that BASH is case-sensitive, i.e.

when you write

Javac Introductions.java

Should give error, because there is no Javac command on path

Lowercase however should work

javac Introductions.java
