You can download visad.jar and visad_examples.jar from
ftp://www.ssec.wisc.edu/pub/visad to a directory (i.e. /tmp), 
and unjar visad_examples.jar (jar xvf visad_examples.jar).
This will create a directory visad/examples under the 
download directory.  cd to that directory and type:

rm *.class     (since the class files are already there)
javac -classpath ../../visad.jar *.java

To run any of the examples, you must be in that directory 
(since there is no Java package for the examples) and
run:

java -classpath ../../visad.jar:. DisplayTest xx

where xx is the test number.  Alternatively, you could run:

java -classpath ../../visad.jar:. Testxx

Not having a package name for the examples might make it
problematic to run through WebStart as I mentioned in my
message yesterday.
