VisualAge doesn't see 'com.ibm.xml.parser' package

I am developing a java program using VisualAge for Java v3.5 Professional.  My code includes the "com.ibm.xml.parser" package that comes with VisualAge.  I am coding a program that will build an XML document by using the "TXDocument" class that is part of IBM's xml parser package.  However, when I try to run the code, I get a "ClassDefNotFound" error.  Currently, I have three classes.  The error is occuring in my abstract class as shown below:

---------------------------------------------
package com.test.xml.filter;

import com.ibm.xml.parser.*;
import org.w3c.dom.*;
import java.io.*;
import java.util.*;

public abstract class Filter  
{
public Document createXMLDocument (String rootName)  
{    
   /* the error is occuring on the line below. The
      compiler doesn't recognize TXDocument */
   Document oDoc = new TXDocument();
   Element oRoot = oDoc.createElement(rootName);

   DTD oDtd = ((TXDocument)oDoc).createDTD(rootName, new
        ExternalID(rootName + ".DTD"));
   
   oDoc.appendChild(oDtd);
   oDoc.appendChild(oRoot);
   return oDoc;    
}
}
-----------------------------------------------
This issue is puzzling me because I can clearly see the class definition if you click on the "Packages" tab in VisualAge and drill down to TXDocument.  Is there something in VisualAge that needs to be configured?  Do I need to reimport the com.ibm.xml.parser package?  If so, where do I get it?  I have already tried searching around for a JAR file or something, but the only thing I have found is the xml4J JAR file that seems to contain everything except for the com.ibm.xml.parser package.  Does anybody know what is wrong with VisualAge or my code?  Thank you.

Setup the classpath of your main class (that contains main methoed): select class, Selected->Run->Check Class Path and choose required projects. (IBM's xml parser is your case)
