  1. @utsav You are in 11th or 12th?

    Are your files are placed in 'default package' , if yes create a new package and move your frame and main class to it using refactor.

    If still the problem persist,
    » Update your JRE to latest version
    » Ensure that there were no errors at compile time an try rebuolding your project
