Compiling only requires that the path parameter be correct. Your error looks like the classpath is not correct.
What class is not found?
Where does that class currently sit?
What is your classpath?
What directory were you in when you executed the app?
The classes must sit in a directory named in the classpath.
If you put a dot reference in the classpath then the "current" directory (the one that you are sitting in when you call java) will be included.
