Having problems compiling XMLGreeting.java

Dear whom it may concern,

I have following set up…
1)Tamino Database called “myDB” is created and running
2)jdom.jar, log4j.jar, TaminoAPI4J.jar, TaminoJCA.jar, JavaTaminoAPIExamples.jar, xercesImpl.jar, xmlParserAPIs.jar, are included

I have tried to compile source code by using command:
javac XMLGreeting.java,
Unfortunately I got the following message warning:

Note: ProcessXMLGreeting.java uses or overrides a deprecated API.

Note: Recompile with -deprecation for details

However I got XMLGreeting.class so I have tried to execute this file by executing command:

java XMLGreeting

Unfortunately, I got the following error message exception:

Exception in thread “main” java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: XMLGreeting (wrong name: com/softwareag/tamino/db/API/examples/greeting/XMLGreeting)

at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClassInternal(ClassLoader.java:322)

Then I commented out the “package” line in the sample code and recompiled, but still got the same error messages…
Could you help me what I should do?
Thank you very much in advance,

/****Sample Code/
|| Example for the Tamino API for Java.
|| Assumes that there is a Tamino database called “myDB”.
|| The example simply uses the default collection ino:etc.
|| This collection should only be used for examples/test code.
|| It shouldn’t generally be used for real applications.
|| The example does the following:
|| establishes a connection to the Tamino database
|| obtains an XML accessor
|| inserts a new document of … into ino:etc
|| queries for the inserted document
|| closes the connection

are you trying this in the context of Tamino X-Application?

If you are using the Tamino Java API, could you post this to the Java API Forum?

Anyway: did you set your classpath settings right?
