directory along with Sample.xsl.When I invoke the url as -" http://localhost:8080/cocoon/samples/Sample.xml " running tomcat server,the cocoon engine throws as exception -
" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: sun/tools/javac/Main

Can anyone please help me out.
Here is the Sample.xml and Sample.xsl files.
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<?cocoon-process type="xsp"?>
<?cocoon-process type="xslt"?>
<?xml-stylesheet href="../samples/Sample.xsl" type="text/xsl"?>

<xsp age language="java"

private static int numHits = 0;

private synchronized int getNumHits( ) {
return ++numHits;

<title>Hit Counter</title>

<p>I've been requested <xsp:expr>getNumHits( )</xsp:expr> times.</p>
</xsp age>
<?xml version="1.0"?>

<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"

<xsl:template match="page">
<xsl rocessing-instruction name="cocoon-format">
</xsl rocessing-instruction>
<title><xsl:value-of select="title"/></title>
<xsl:apply-templates select="*[not(self::title)]" />

<xsl:template match="p">
<p align="center">
<xsl:apply-templates />

Thanks in advance.
