I am getting  this exception even if I have exactly same top level public class name and the filename.


The  exception is:
Exception in thread "Main Thread" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError:
...../common/util/email/PostEmail
Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: com.breeze.common.util.email.PostEmail
      at java.net.URLClassLoader$1.run(URLClassLoader.java:202)
      at java.net.URLClassLoader.findClass(URLClassLoader.java:190)
      at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(ClassLoader.java:306)
      at sun.misc.Launcher$AppClassLoader.loadClass(Launcher.java:308)
      at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(ClassLoader.java:247)




And the class def is:
import javax.mail.Message;
import javax.mail.MessagingException;
import javax.mail.Multipart;
import javax.mail.PasswordAuthentication;
import javax.mail.Session;
import javax.mail.Transport;
import javax.mail.internet.InternetAddress;
import javax.mail.internet.MimeMessage;

public class PostEmail {

.......


public static void main(String[]args){
//class is instantiated and used here
}

}

Any help is appreciated!
Thanks

It is looking for PostEmail to be in a package, and so you must have a line in your class def to say that it is in this package. So add the following line to the top of your PostEmail.java file...
package com.breeze.common.util.email;

I already had that package import but issue was caused by some other(unknown). I just recreated my clearcase view and issue goes away.

It's not an "import" but a package declaration. You say that you already had it then you must have removed it (or not copied it) in what you posted in your original question, so that is why I said to use it.

Glad your issue is resolved!
