      Description

      Hi there, I've cloned from the kafka github repo and tried to run the start server script:

      ./bin/kafka-server-start.sh config/server.properties

      Which results in:

      Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: kafka/Kafka
      Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: kafka.Kafka
      at java.net.URLClassLoader$1.run(URLClassLoader.java:202)
      at java.security.AccessController.doPrivileged(Native Method)
      at java.net.URLClassLoader.findClass(URLClassLoader.java:190)

      at sun.misc.Launcher$AppClassLoader.loadClass(Launcher.java:301)
      at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(ClassLoader.java:247)

      It seems that Im missing a build step? what have I forgotten to do?

      Thanks in advance and I look forward to using kafka.

      regards
