I know its based on this:      
Usage: java [-options] class [args...]
           (to execute a class)
   or  java [-options] -jar jarfile [args...]
           (to execute a jar file)

The same way you do in in Windows. The only difference is that the classpath separator is : and not ; if you want to set a classpath
java javaTest.Test
