compilation error of servlet

I have a java file

And I have a servlet

The League class is compiled in the folder s1314\model and the servlet file is placed in the folder s1314\view.

I am getting some errors like "package s1314.model does not exist" and "cannot find symbol class 'League'".

Please advise me why I am getting such compilation errors.

Make sure the folders exist in your classpath

I used the command javac -classpath C:\Tomcat5.5\lib\servlet-api.jar;C:\introcs\s1314\model

But I am still getting the same error.

Please advise.

The classpath must not contain the directories for packages. Use "C:\introcs" instead.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
