Your code is fine. The compilation error seems to suggest that either the file protTestChild.java is deleted/renamed before running javac or else it is hidden/not readable.
Have you checked the location and "file attributes" of the file?

Thanks a lot for your quick reply.
I got the solution from some other forum. I needed to execute the command as C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0_06\bin>javac xyz/ProtTestChild.java
But I thank you Neha, the link you gave proved to be something which I have been searching for a long time.I was in a habit of saving my programs in bin directory although I knew its not a good practice but since I was not clear with the classpaths and environment variable so I had to do it against my will.
It would be a great help if you can tell me more about classpaths and environment variable or may be give some other usefull links to study.

About the names of your classes: Using the names "Parent" and "Child" for superclasses and subclasses is really wrong; inheritance in OO programming is not the same as biological inheritance. Confusing the OO programming concept of inheritance with the biological meaning of the word will make it harder for you to understand what "inheritance" means with regard to programming.
