While compiling just say javac *.java this will take the adjecent classes or javac -classpath "<classpath>" <filename> can also be used.

Hope this helps

Read Sun's Setting the Classpath and then see if this tutorial helps. BTW: Only take that 2nd one as far as sounds useful and sensible right now. If it goes beyond what you need, just stop.

A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
