I have a java pgm, "test.java" in "C:\MyProjects\beerV1" folder



and the "BeerExpert.class" file in "C:\MyProjects\beerV1\classes\com\example\model" folder

which contains,

package com.example.model;



so when i try compiling the "test.java" as below i get the, "cannot find symbol" error as below,

C:\MyProjects\beerV1>javac -cp classes test.java
test.java:4: cannot find symbol
symbol : class BeerExpert
location: class test
new BeerExpert();

1 error

can anyone please tell me how to compile the "test.java" file, which uses the "BeerExpert.class" file?
