Hi guys,
this is a pathetically obvious error which i am unable to resolve. The thing is i have a simple program that i am running from the command prompt through the command "java filename" and i keep getting the NoClassDefFoundError in thread main. The class file is in the same folder from which i am trying to run it , still i keep getting this runtime error. Can anyone help to get me out of this frustrating position.
Thanks
Raja

hi,
is your class in a package ?
if yes, then you have to run it with java packageName.Classname from the "root" of your class files.
check the classpath variable too.

Hi Raja,
You must have "." in your classpath to work with any java file in the current directory.
Regards,
Manfred.

that about a zillion of us have stumbled on at one time or other !
As stated above - either make sure that the directory that the class file is in is stated in the classpath, or have a dot reference in your classpath and start the app from the directory that it is in.
