class not found compile error

hi,

   Note: newbie on java

  i've found the page
http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/applet/practical/clientExample.html

i want to try the example but when i compile
  QuoteServer.java an error (Class QouteServerThread not found ....)comes out. the compiler is looking for the QuoteServerThread.Class so i compiled first the QuoteServerThread.java (succesful!) then tried to recompile the QuoteServer.java but same error came out. how can i resolve this? thanks in advance.


ps. i copied the two .java files in my \bin directory and im using jdk1.2

Make sure that your classpath contains your current directory.

In windows:

set CLASSPATH=.;%CLASSPATH%

On Linux:

set CLASSPATH=.:$CLASSPATH; export CLASSPATH


Then try and build them again...

Also, when you build the example, build all of the Java files at the same time.

>> javac *.java

This will ensure that all of the dependent classes in the current directory will be built as well.

And you don't need to put your Java source files in /bin.

where should i set the classpath?

sdussingerCommented:
There are two ways to set the classpath. You can set it from the command line using the syntax I posted earlier.

Or you can set it when you do the compile:

>> javac -cp .;%CLASSPATH% <files> under windows

>> javac -cp .:$CLASSPATH <file> under Linux

Just what do you want to do with PWS? I'm not real clear on the question here...

i tested the example given in
     http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/applet/practical/clientExample.html

this is the link where i got those java sample files. i've followed the directions in setting up the program. the QuoteServer works fine as well as the applet only that the quotes (which should be changing in the applet) doesn't work. i doubt that the PWS has something to do with this since im testing it on my local PC not on a web server. do u think this could be the problem? am i lacking something that i need to install for it to work? hope to hear from u.... hope it's clear, also.
