    Question Where is my class??

    I have created a simple program to create a graphical user interface GUI window that contains the text Hello World in it, and in NetBeans it compiles and runs fine. Unfortunately, it does not run in the command prompt, although it does compile fine.
    Here is my code:
    //*Zachariah A Lloyd
     //* HELLO WORLD Interface*/
    package guihelloworld;
    import javax.swing.JOptionPane;
    public class GUIHelloWorld {
        public static void main(String[] args){
            JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, "HELLO WORLD");}}
    and as I said when I run this in NetBeans there are no errors or problems at all.

    However, when I try to run it in the command prompt, it won't work right, complaining about having some problem locating the main class??

    Please copy and paste the exact text of the command prompt, including how you're running the file and the error message you receive.
