Hello all,

I'm trying to run the following command shown on the wiki (see

bzcat ../wa.osm.bz2 | java osmosis --read-xml enableDateParsing=no
file=/dev/stdin\ --bounding-box top=47.85187 left=122.44881 bottom=47.40671
right=121.80199 --write-xml file=-\ | bzip2 > extracted.osm.bz2

And I'm getting the following error:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: osmosis
Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: osmosis
        at java.net.URLClassLoader$1.run(URLClassLoader.java:200)
        at java.security.AccessController.doPrivileged(Native Method)
        at java.net.URLClassLoader.findClass(URLClassLoader.java:188)
        at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(ClassLoader.java:303)

        at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(ClassLoader.java:248)
        at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClassInternal(ClassLoader.java:316)
Could not find the main class: osmosis.  Program will exit.

I'm making my call from the bin folder from the binary for Osmosis given on
the wiki.
Any suggestions as to what I'm doing wrong?
