java - MAC - Error: Could not find or load main class (name of class)

I'm trying to run a program written in Java using the command prompt on my Mac , but after compiling me pop up message: Error: Could not find or load main class TEST.

Maybe Im doing stupid mistake.

This is code of java program (I'm using NetBeans):

package test;

* @author Kuba
public class TEST {

* @param args the command line arguments
public static void main(String[] args) {


This is from my command line:

Thank you for any advice.


Jakub-MacBook-Pro:test Kuba$

This should do the trick.

cd ..
java test.TEST

Search for classpath. This is also a good read.
