Try the following syntax to compile the code
1. Go to the directory where your .java files were placed and try the following command

javac -d . *.java

-d tells the compiler to create folder structure according to the package structure and place the class file in that directory.
And the '.' says that the directories should be created in the current directory.
*.java to compile all java files.

Hope it solves your problem.

NOTE: you need to have java 1.5 to use generic objects.
