Add a line of code to get the classpath property from the java.System packages and print it.

Your Eclipse project's root directory should hold an XML file called ".classpath" that defines the class path.

On the other hand if you just want to run one of your own classes in the console, and you developed it in an Eclipse project, then everything that is in that project's build path should be in your classpath when you run the class at the command line.
