java.lang.ClassNotFoundException (main class not found)

Hi,

I was working with a 2D graphing example (actually got the example from here) and I was trying to plot some additional points .

After writing code to do so I noticed when running the program the code was stepping through the old code (ie not running sequentially, making bizarre jumps, etc)

So after some googling I decided to clean my project (Project --> Clean)

Now I'm getting an error that says the main class cannot be found, which is quite odd since it was working fine until I "cleaned" it.

I am using java 1.6 and the latest version of eclipse.  Below is my code.

Thanks !!

Bryan

check your java file is inside a source folder in your project
and make sure you are running the right class

It's a problem with your project or file names, not your code.  I can compile and run the code you provided just fine.

Just try rebuilding the project and running again

I had to remove the the source folder and than readd it in order to prompt the rebuild.  For some reason my code was not rebuilding on its own, eventhough I had the option selected to build automatically. Anyone had issues like this ?

Thanks !!
