hi All,
I've just start java have a problem with compiling an Application.
First i done Coding :

/* This program Will take two arguments Hello world from the command Prompt and prints them to standard console. If you specify less then two arguments an exception Will be thrown*/

public class TwoArgsApp {

public static void main(String args[]){

//Displays the first argument on console
  System.out.println("First argument"+args[0]);

//Displays the second argument on console
  System.out.println("Second argument"+args[1]);

And when I've try to compile the App its don't print on console give the Eror you can see here :

D:\>set path=C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_27\bin

D:\>javac TwoArgsApp.java

D:\>java TwoArgsApp
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: TwoArgsApp
Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: TwoArgsApp
        at java.net.URLClassLoader$1.run(URLClassLoader.java:202)
        at java.security.AccessController.doPrivileged(Native Method)
        at java.net.URLClassLoader.findClass(URLClassLoader.java:190)

        at sun.misc.Launcher$AppClassLoader.loadClass(Launcher.java:301)
        at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(ClassLoader.java:247)
Could not find the main class: TwoArgsApp.  Program will exit.

Build and runs fine here:
java version "1.6.0_23"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea6 1.11pre) (6b23~pre10-0ubuntu5)
OpenJDK Server VM (build 20.0-b11, mixed mode)

So I think it is better you uninstall and re install your jdk. may be it is corrupt

I've install jdk Second time. but problem still there :(

In your set path command, try putting the path in "double quotes".
The space in "Program Files" may be causing an error.

you mean i should try this : "C:\ProgramFiles\Java\jdk1.6.0_27\bin"
gonna try this.

No. I mean "C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_27\bin"

im doing wait a moment please.

now the Error is:

D:\>set path="C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_27\bin"

D:\>javac TwoArgsApp.java
javac: file not found: TwoArgsApp.java
Usage: javac <options> <source files>
use -help for a list of possible options



when im compiling by this path : C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_27\bin
its goes successfully till making Class file and after create a class file its dose not print on console by this command : java TwoArgsApp

Is your TwoArgsApp.java on the root of D: or in a sub-directory of D:?

Try this... Change...

public static void main(String args[]){


public static void main(String[] args){

@Taywin that doesn't matter, it is only coding convenience
@us0343 why don't you set proper path in your system variables instead of fiddling each time with set path, you can see example here

I see. Thanks for pointing out. Because I never use args[], I didn't know that. :)

on the root of D:
