When you compile (javac) or when you run (java)?

Sorry about that.  When I compile (javac), it compiles without error.

When I run it lfrom ms_dos like: java Swing_Sample, I get the error.

The program is:
import javax.swing.UIManager;
import java.awt.*;

public class Swing_Sample1 {

  public Swing_Sample1() {
     DisplayFramejr myframe = new DisplayFramejr();
     Dimension screenSize = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getScreenSize();
     Dimension frameSize = myframe.getSize();
     if (frameSize.height > screenSize.height) {
       frameSize.height = screenSize.height;
     }
     if (frameSize.width > screenSize.width) {
       frameSize.width = screenSize.width;
     }
     myframe.setLocation((screenSize.width - frameSize.width) / 2, (screenSize.height - frameSize.height) / 2);
     myframe.setVisible(true);
  }  
  public static void main(String[] args) {    
     new Swing_Sample1();
  }  
}

Is Swing_Sample1.class  in your classpath?
Do you have it in your working directory?

I think you are on the right track.  Maybe the classpath variable is not setup right because, I just  found out that I get this message for every program that I compile and run.  All compile fine and don't run.  

I am using jdk1.3.1_01 that I just downloaded and I have my programs in a directory called java and I cd to that directory and say:

C:\java\java Swing_Sample1

The class files are already created in the directory.  Someone told me to go to the bin directory of JDK and run it there.  I moved my programs thare and it didn't make any difference.

Can you tell me what path and classpath variables needs to be for jdk1.3.1?

Thanks

I don't know which system you are working on , but for Win98
PATH=C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND;C:\jdk1.3.1\BIN
SET CLASSPATH=.
SET JAVA_HOME=C:\jdk1.3.1

If you put it in C:\jdk1.3.1_01 then use that instead of jdk1.3.1

Thanks.  I typed in the exact same thing for those three variables and it worked.
