Google told me very quickly that this class is in package "org.jfree.data.general". You're trying to import it from the wrong package.

What is your classpath set to? That error means that Java can't find your class. You must set the classpath so that Java can find your class.

Setting the class path

Yes, but the missing class is not one of the JFree classes, it's "First" - probably one of your classes. It needs to be in the classpath as well.
