I am testing one java class. Here is source code:
public class FileDemo {
public static void main (String [] args) throws IOException {
// Create instances of File objects for directory
// and file entries
File dir = new File(File.separator + "Wrox" + File.separator
+ "docs");
File f1 = new File(dir, "test1.txt");
File f2 = new File(dir, "test2.doc");
File f3 = new File(dir, "test3.txt");
//FileDemo f = new FileDemo();
// Create directory and files
System.out.println("Directory \\Wrox\\docs created");
System.out.println("Files \"test1.txt\" and \"test2.doc\" created");
// Get file attributes
System.out.println("\nAttributes of \"test1.txt\" \n" +
"\n\"test1.txt\" exists: " + f1.exists() +
"\n\"test1.txt\" is a file: " + f1.isFile() +
"\n\"test1.txt\" is a directory: " + f1.isDirectory() +
"\nCan read from \"test1.txt\": " + f1.canRead() +
"\nCan write to \"test1.txt\": " + f1.canWrite() +
"\nThe absolute path of \"test1.txt\": " + f1.getAbsolutePath());
// Rename test2.doc to test3.txt
System.out.println("\nThe name of the file object f2 is "
+ f2.getName());
System.out.println("Renaming :\"test2.doc\" to \"test3.txt\"");
System.out.println("The name of the file object f3 is "+f3.getName());
// Delete all files and directory
System.out.println("\nDeleting files and directory ");
System.out.println("The file \"test1.txt\" is deleted: "
+ f1.delete());
System.out.println("The file \"test3.txt\" is deleted: "
+ f3.delete());
System.out.println("The directory docs is deleted: "
+ dir.delete());
//FileDemo f = new FileDemo();
Here is what I did:
C:\>cd C:\jakarta-tomcat-4.1.12-src\webapps\ROOT\begjsp-ch14\src
C:\jakarta-tomcat-4.1.12-src\webapps\ROOT\begjsp-ch14\src>java FileDemo
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: FileDemo
No error message in compiling. But when I run it, I had NoClassDefFoundError. Any idea why I got this exception? I suspect the path problem. Thanks in advance

Whoa deja vu! OK, so it's not in a package. You might try:
before you run it. However, I just compiled and ran it without any CLASSPATH variable being set. Can you run any Java programs on your system? Maybe something is fundamentally wrong with your set up.

I run a lot of JSP and Javabean in my machine without any problem. I am using Forte as well as command line to compile it.

I messed CLASSPATH when I installed Tomcat. It was:
It should be:
Now it works. Thanks for your help.
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
