Hello, I have this strange problem. My jdk worked perfectly last week. However now, I can still compile files with javac, and if I type java in my command line (shell) it is recognized and a list of different uses of java is listed. However, When I try to run my files I get this error:

java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError : getPayXML

Where getPayXML is the name of the class I just compiled. I really dont understand this. Can anyone help me with this? I have java_home set. Thanks.

Denitely it is a path problem, just remove the settings made by u in classpath and compile and rum again.

Thanks, it works now. It seems that some program or person overwrote my classpath. I changed it to read classpath = .

I'd recommend a class name that doesn't look like a method as well ;-)
