I am Trying to execute java program which is in jar file

set JAVA_HOME="C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0_06"

java -classpath c:\lib;c:\myTest.jar com\test\admin\client\Delta\DeltaTest

it says class not found exception....it's not getting the supported class files, jars which are available in lib folder.

why is it so?lib folder is in classpath

Thanks for your help.

I hope you mean myTest.jar

java -classpath c:\lib;c:\myTest.jar com.test.admin.client.Delta.DeltaTest
or
java -classpath c:\lib;c:\myTest.jar com/test/admin/client/Delta/DeltaTest

"\" is the villain

So is /. When executing Java classes, you need to provide the fully qualified name of the class whose main method you want to execute. That means the full package and class name: com.test.admin.client.Delta.DeltaTest

ok, Thanks for the input..but the main problem I am facing is that in lib folder there are 20 files. when I right c:\lib in classpath it does not access any supporting jar files.
I need to sepecify

java -classpath c:\lib\file1.jar;c:\lib\file2.jar;c:\lib\file3.jar;c:\lib\file4.jar;c:\lib\file5.jar;c:\lmyTest.jar com.NameoftheClass

I do not want to specify jar in such way...is there way to put folder in to the classpath folder?

Thanks

You should be able to do this:

java -cp C:\lib\*.jar;C:\myTest.jar com.test.admin.client.Delta.DeltaTest

Note that using a wildcard (*) is a new feature that was added in Java 6; since you're using Java 5, it might not work.

Then is it that we should not use a "/" although it works?

Actually the * doesn't work quite the way you would expect.
C:\lib\*.jar doesn't match anything, C:\lib\* matches all jar files
