Welcome to the Ranch

I have added code tags which you should always use, and you can see how much better your post looks
Don’t set a classpath for such a simple app. You can only find the class of that name from outside the world folder. Try
cd ..
java world.HelloWorld
 
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
