Set the classpath to include the folder where your "com" folder is located. That would be /usr/local/apache-tomcat/webapps/Asianet/WEB-INF/classes in your case.

As Rob says, you need to include the folder in the classpath, probably best done with the -cp option on javac and java. Go to this documentation page and click on "javac" and "java" for more details.

And please find the Code Tags; I have added them to your post so you can see how much easier it is to read.
