I am getting the following error whenever I run any ".class" file using "javac" -
Exception in the thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError : --------
I understand that this is with the class path. I am running windows98 and jdk 1.2.2. My classpath setting is -

rem *** Visual Cafe DE Trialsettings ***
rem *** End Visual Cafe DE Trialsettings ***
PATH D:\orawin95\bin;C:\JDK1.2.2\BIN;c:\jsdk2.0\lib\jsdk.jarD:\VisualCafeTrial\BIN;D:\VisualCafeTrial\JAVA\BIN

Any help will be highly appreciated.

With javac? It seems to me that you would only want to pass .java files to javac, not .class files.

If the class with the main-method has been compiled to a .class file named StartMain.class, type:
java StartMain
to run the app.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
