I try to compile and run the simple log4j example:

    import org.apache.log4j.Logger;
    import org.apache.log4j.BasicConfigurator;

    public class Hello {

      static Logger logger = Logger.getLogger(Hello.class);

      public
      static
      void main(String argv[]) {
        BasicConfigurator.configure();
        logger.debug("Hello world.");
        logger.info("What a beatiful day.");
      }
    }

I get the error:
WARNING: Default charset MS950 not supported, using ISO-8859-1 instead
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: Hello

I'm using XP (Chinese). Should I need to set anything before running the program?

Many thanks.

Add charsets.jar to your classpath.  Go to System Properties->Advanced->Environment Variables-> then look up your classpath variable (Should be under system variables).  Then edit the classpath to include charsets.jar (should be in your javaxx/jre/lib/ directory.

>> java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: Hello

It means that the Hello class (your own class) is not found - it should be in the classpath.

Try: java -cp . Hello

Its better to add the path of the Hello class to the classpath, so add the Hello class's parent directory to the classpath, using: set classpath=%classpath%;C:\TESTS

- assuming that C:\TESTS contains the Hello.class file. Or you can add the current directory to the classpath:

set classpath=%classpath%;.

And run using:

java Hello

Thanks mayankeagle. It works after setting CLASSPATH.

BTW, the charset warning still prompts:

echo %CLASSPATH%
C:\jakarta-log4j-1.2.8\dist\lib\log4j-1.2.8.jar;C:\j2sdk1.4.2_04\jre\lib\charset
s.jar;.

java Hello
WARNING: Default charset MS950 not supported, using ISO-8859-1 instead
0 [main] DEBUG Hello  - Hello world.
0 [main] INFO Hello  - What a beatiful day.

Anyway, thanks NTAC.
