compiling package problem

I don't understand where I'm going wrong here.
I've got 2 classes in the same package, one of which ( accesses the other class
In the dos prompt I change the working directory to where the java files are located and then type this command:
javac -classpath .com/project/databases/
When I hit enter, it executes the command and gives the impression that it has compiled both java files. When I do dir, it hasn't created any class files??
Any ideas???

I believe the .class files will have been created in the com/project/databases/ folder.

Why do you have a dot before com?
If you are compling the java files from the folder where they are then they shouldn't they be compiled like this:
javac*.java ?
I agree. Here's the link:
