Package does not exist

I am doing a simple Servlet program. I have my directory structure as

I have given "package valid.fb;" in
And "package valid.act; import java.fb.*;" in

But I am getting error saying that "package valid.fb does not exist". Should I put "valid\fb" in classpath?

For this to correctly work set the classpath to "classes\".
If the relative path does not work, set the fully qualified path for the classpath.

Thank you Anuradha. Previously, I was thinking classes is on the class path, so I don't need to mention it separately. It was just came to me that it was on the Tomcat's class path, not on my compiler's class path.
I agree. Here's the link:
