I have the following 2 files in these 2 packages:

Now I want to compile class Child, consider these 2 packages are contained in a directory called "Test" I simply do this in command line:
cd Test
javac pack2\Child.java

My question, shouldn't I be using -classpath option to locate Parent.java during compilation, same when running to locate Parent.class.

If no classpath is specified, Java's default is to look in the current directory. Since this is where pack1.Parent is located, it should work without explicitly specifying a classpath.
