Getting Error:

Error: Could not find or load main class Example.java while running the program

Can you list your code here for each class?

As Philip stated we will need the code for your classes since it could be a number of issues. The most likely is that you made a typo somewhere, like misspelling Example at some point or some other small error like that.

Sounds like you deleted a file of didn't link the methods to communicate with the main java file.

I had the same issue a few minutes ago. I spell-checked both classes and then spell checked what i typed in the console, to realize i put "clear %% javac Example.java && java Example" I changed it and it worked.

Show us the code by updating your problem, then I'll try to figure, what's wrong.
