I have a class, Condit, which compiles and runs fine, when it is in the default package, but when I set it to be in package certification;
It compiles but when I try to run it this error comes up:
C:\java\certification>java Condit
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: Condit (wrong name: j
ava/certification/Condit)

C:\java\certification>

Any idea what I am doing wrong?

you'll also need to add c:\java to your classpath if it is not there already.

Hello Frankis..

 The problem may be for the following reasons

1)   Get one step back form your current directory then it looks like "c:\java"  here use  
java certification.condit

Thanks Objects, that seems to have done the trick, but I always thought that if you have a period in the classpath:
classpath=.;C:\certified etc

the class would run. How come it worked when it was default package?

Thanks

. (current directory) would work if you ran it from c:\java
add c:\java explicitly allows you to run from any directory
