I am new to using XML in VAJ 3.5.3 environment.
I am using VAJ 3.5.3. I have imported IBM XML Parser for Java to my work bench. The example class compiles properly, but when run, I get a NoClassDefFoundError
How do I eliminate this error and run the code. Please help.

* Starts the application.
* @param args an array of command-line arguments
public static void main(java.lang.String[] args) {
Parser parser;
Document doc;
Element root;
FileInputStream FIS;
Node child,child2;
// Open the XML file passed as a parameter in memory.
FIS = new FileInputStream("d:/contacts.xml");
// Instantiating a Java based XML parser
// Passing the XML file to the XML parser
parser = new Parser("d:/contacts.xml");
doc = parser.readStream(FIS);
// Loading the memvar root with the root element in the XML tree
root = doc.getDocumentElement();
child = root.getFirstChild();

child2 = child.getNextSibling();
// Printing out the name of the root element in the XML tree
// in a DOS window
System.out.println("The Root Element is: " + root.getNodeName());
System.out.println("The First Child is: " + child.getNodeName());
System.out.println("The First Child is: " + child2.getNodeName());
// Primitive exception handling
catch (Exception excp)
System.out.println("Exception raised:" + excp.toString());
The xml file in D drive is
<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<EmpName id="eoo1" age="22">Tesr</EmpName>
<Address>D3-83 NDA</Address>

As this is really a question of how to configure a particular IDE, I'll move it to the IDE forum for you.
