What directory are you attempting to compile the code from? And what command are you using?

Hi,
i think Home1.java is not present in example folder. check it once.
one option is import that particular class..

you have set your classpath to C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_03\bin; . javac will look in this director for any class file it needs while compiling Message. so you need to same your Home1 in bin\com\example directory.
Please repost if you need further help

both classes are in the same package. so you need not import it.
