Java compile, execute, display in MS-DOS Command through other folder.

Greetings, I have installed Java JDK and JRE on my server and I have created a basic program "Hello World". I use my laptop as a client and I use my server as a compiler using MS-DOS command.

I use this ms-dos command for compiling:

X:\Java\JDK\bin\javac X:\myFiles\HelloWorld.java

And it did work. But when I type this command to execute and display:

X:\Java\JDK\bin\java X:\myFiles\HelloWorld

It's gives an error, it said path is missing or file is not found something to deal with class thing. I check the "myFiles" folder if its HelloWorld.class does exist in the folder and it does. Am I missing something? I'm not that really an advance user using MS-DOS command, just need some help about this problem, a little information. Thanks :)
