jcifs null pointer exception


I am under windows environment and i am using intellij. I had to extract jcifs classes and i did and the following code doesn't give any compiler error but once I run my code, it fails as follows:

NtlmPasswordAuthentication auth = new NtlmPasswordAuthentication("mydomain","test", "test");
                    SmbFile smbFile = new SmbFile(path,auth);
                    SmbFileOutputStream smbfos = new SmbFileOutputStream(smbFile);
                    smbfos.write("testing....and writing to a file".getBytes());
                    System.out.println("completed ...nice !");

I don't see any sign from your code that the jcifs classes are actually in the classpath
