Where you in such a hurry that you made a typo error? If not your package abc.xyx should be in a directory abc/xyx . Here you say it is in abc/xz.
Moreover by "../.." do you really mean "../.." or is it some kind of "another_subdir/another_subdir".
Have you checked where your .class have been generated? Does it match your classpath?

Yes you are right ../.. are subdirectories
in my classpth I've set
Now whole path for .class file is
I am calling this xyz.class from test.class
these classes are in package abc.utils so in classpath I am only specifying till classes.
but when I am doing java test
then I am getting exception in main NOclassDef found(/abc/utils/xyz)
FYI I am doing java test from same folder where this .class files are.
I hope I am clear.

You need to call your *.class files from the root of the package (from the root of 'WEB-INF/classes').
First compile like this: javac abc/utils/
then call the class-file like this: java
and you need to put a .(dot) in your CLASSPATH

URGENT is a bull with fire in his eye charging at you and the only path out it blocked by a Moose.
Classpath problems are probably somewhat less drastic than that :roll: .
