I have developed a class using NetBeans and i want to run it using command line , I've configured command line and it work correctly but my question is:
where this class should be stored to run it using command line arguments?

Anywhere you like. A class doesn't have to be stored in a special place or special way to be able to run it using command line arguments.

You can run it from a Windows command prompt with the java command, something like this:

C:\Project> java -classpath classes org.mypackage.MyProgram arg0 arg1 arg2 ...

where classes is the directory that contains the class files and org.mypackage.MyProgram is the fully-qualified name of the class that contains the main method, and arg0, arg1 etc. are the command line arguments.
