You have to add the absolute path of javac to PATH env variable.
Code:
export PATH="$PATH:/your_javac_path_here/"

Or try running like below once you are in bin directory:-
Code:
./javac Example.java

run the javac command as below:

Code:
JAVA_HOME=/your_javac_path_here
$JAVA_HOME/bin/javac Example.java
