i am having trouble running a class that i have created.  I have also created a package that i am importing.

When i run the class i get the following error:
"Can't find class Udl"

I am running the class by entering the following command:

java Udl

Hope you can help.
Thanks in advance!

I am not creating the Udl classfile as a package.

Assuming that Udl.class is in c:\test, does the following work?

c:\test> SET CLASSPATH=.;c:\pathtopackage\package.jar
c:\test> java Udl

     c:\test> SET CLASSPATH=.;c:\pathtopackage\package.jar
     c:\test> java Udl

The VM search for classes that are in the classpath. The SET ... sets the classpath to include
the current directory, containing the main class as well as the library that it uses.
