Hi Everyone,

I am using Windows XP SP1.

When I type javac <<>> on commandline, it successfully compile the file.
But when i use java <<File>> on commandline,
"Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: <<File>>"
though the file consists of main method.

I also set the Path env. variable.

Can anyone suggest me some other approach ?

Um this really isn't the right place for that question... but you have a problem with the name of the file and the name of the class not being the same (or at least thats my first impression).
