You have to save the file under com/utils under your root and then compile it.

Hi Ramesh,


 javac -d .

 when compiling.

Now it will create class file whatever the directory you mentioned.

Now you can run like this. com.utils.Util

2. java Util
   after going to com\utils directory.

Best of luck
