You don't need to recompile the source code. If it can't find a class that's either because you've got the name wrong, or because you've got the (run-time) classpath wrong.
The XPathExample class is in the samples/java directory, and if it can't be found that means this directory isn't being searched.

Subject: [saxon] NoClassDefFoundError: XPathExample

I have downloaded the version 7.6.5a and would like to try out the examples but in vain.
I have tried to recompile the source with classpath and sourcepath specified and it is okay. However, when I try to execute the class, it fails with the following error.
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: XPathExample
