What is classpath?

The classpath is the connection between the Java runtime and the filesystem. It defines where the compiler and interpreter look for .class files to load or the CLASSPATH is an environment variable that tells the Java compiler javac.exe where to look for class files to import or java.exe where to find class files to interpret. The class path can be set using either the -classpath option when calling an SDK tool (the preferred method) or by setting the CLASSPATH environment variable.
