I am beginner. This may be a simple problem for you.

operating system is Windows 98.
In Autoexec.bat, added tst library in path.

So, path = C:\WINDOWS;C:\PROGRAMFILES\JAVA;C:\TST;
SET CLASSPATH = C:\tst;

After above setting, i rebooted system also tried to run autoexec file from dos prompt.

created directory named tst
created following java file in library named tst and compiled. It compiled fine. Gives me error during running by command Java C:\tst\packex or java packex

I tried to run it from c: root directory, from c:\tst and from java library in all cases, it fails.

I am getting error as 'Exception in thread "main" Java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: C:\tst\packex'



Please suggest solution so i can run it from any library without specifying directory path.


package tst;

class packex
{
public static void main(String ara[])
{
{
System.out.println("Testing package");
}
}
}

Your class name isn't "packex" -- it's actually named "tst.packex" because it's in package "tst". Therefore, assuming the class file "C:\tst\packex.class" exists, at the commant prompt you'd navigate to C:\ and run your application via:
java tst.packex

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
