NoClassDefFoundError when I run a custom doclet from command line

Currently Being Moderated
I have a custom Doclet created - SimpleDoclet. I have compiled this file and I have the class and java files in the same dir (oldPack)

When I run this from oldPack directory (where the class and java files are present) :
javadoc -doclet SimpleDoclet -docletpath . -classpath /usr/java/jdk1.6.0_30/lib/tools.jar SimpleDoclet.java

I get the following error:
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: SimpleDoclet (wrong name: oldPack/SimpleDoclet)

Tried this with another custom doclet and still gives this error. Any solutions please?
