I have created the following file in my C:\javacode\ directory. It compiles fine, but when I execute it, i get the error message..

The error message I get:

Exception in thread "main"
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: HelloWorld

Is this because of my classpath or is it somthing else?
My classpath is :

SET CLASSPATH=C:\j2sdk1.4.0_01\bin;c:\javacode\

If so, How can I get the classpath corrected for Windows ME?

Always the classpath should be set to the library where all the class files are stored i.e., the JavaHome/lib, where JavaHome is the dir where java is loaded.
So set ur classpath. For beginners u need not set the classpath, all the class files will b loaded in the pwd(present working directory) and it is sufficient that u set the Path to the bin direcory.

Actually, I needed to drop the final \ from the classpath Set statement (C:\javacode )..
Ah well... one day, I'll get the hang of this stuff...
I agree. Here's the link:
