Java version check
In command prompt I did: java -version, it showed I have version 1.8. It doesn't recognize javac. My question is: Must javac be recognized or its fine if it recognizes java. Thank you!

That's totally normal - java can be run from your home directory but javac can not (The command is actually found in the JDK files, rather than the runtime files like the java command).
You can proceed with the course as normal and everything should work out fine.
If you do run into any issues however, do let us know on these forums and we'll be sure to help out :)
