No problem with code. Probably CL:ASSPATH problem

I compiled all your classes and it was successful. I ran the HoursTrackerGUI and I was able to see the window. Of course, I put app.show ( ) ; in main method. I think you have classpath problem in your PC. Let me describe you the steps you can try.
Suppose your .java files are in "c:\abc\HoursTracker\" folder.
1. Compile HoursTrackerGUICloseableFrame.java file. It will compile fine because it doesn't have any extrenal dependencies.
Use javac "c:\abc\HoursTracker\HoursTrackerGUICloseableFrame.java" command.
2. Compile HoursTrackerApp.java file. It will compile fine because it doesn't have any extrenal dependencies.
Use javac "c:\abc\HoursTracker\HoursTrackerApp.java" command.
3. Now you have to compile HoursTrackerGUI.java. However, this class uses the two classes compiled in steps 1 and 2. So, the you need to pass classpath (if not set already) along with javac command. YOu can compile this class as follows.
javac -classpath c:\abc c:\abc\HoursTracker\HoursTrackerGUI.java
and it should compile fine.
