Eclipse : Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException / Exception in thread "main"

java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/javaxp/test
Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: com.javaxp.Test

Exception in thread "main" 


There could be a couple of reasons for the above error

1. .class files not created properly

Try
Project -> Clean -> Clean all projects / Clean project selected below -> OK

2. JVM is not able to pick the classpath

Try
right click on the project -> Properties -> Java Compiler -> unclick the first box saying 'Enable project specific settings' -> Apply -> OK

3. A missing JAR file in the classpath

Try
right click on the project -> Properties -> Java Build Path -> Libraries -> (Remove unwanted missing jar files if any) -> OK

Hope this helps in most of the cases.
