I am having trouble with Scott Klements POI examples, specifically it can't find the HSSFWorkbook class

here's my classpath

Display Environment Var (*JOB)

Name . . . . . . . . . : CLASSPATH


Value . . . . . . . . . : '/java/poi-3.11/poi-3.11-20141221.jar'

(I know there are a lot of things missing, but this one jar should contain what I am looking for right now).

Here is the error:

Technical description . . . . . . . . : If the exception indicates that the
Java class was not found, ensure the class for the method is in the class
path. If the exception indicates that the Java method was not found, check
the method name and signature. If the signature is not correct, change the
RPG prototype for the method, or change the Java method, so that the return
type and parameter types match. You can determine the signatures for all the
methods in class XYZ using command QSH CMD('javap -s XYZ').

Class not found, but this is a partial listing of /java/poi-3.11/poi-3.11-20141221.jar:

1013 Wed Dec 17 01:02:56 EST 2014 org/apache/poi/hssf/util/HSSFColor$AUTOMATIC.class

The class is obviously there.

I did the following in QShell, this is a partial list of environment variables
OSTYPE=os400
MACHTYPE=powerpc-ibm-os400
CLASSPATH=/java/poi-3.11/poi-3.11-20141221.jar <<<< This is the whole classpath for this session
TERMINAL_TYPE=5250
PATH=/usr/bin:.:/QOpenSys/usr/bin

Yet I get the following error:
$
javap -s org.apache.poi.hssf.usermodel.HSSFWorkbook
ERROR:Could not find org.apache.poi.hssf.usermodel.HSSFWorkbook

and here is what that directory looks like:
$
cd /java/poi-3.11
$
ls
poi-3.11-20141221.jar
$

How do I coerce java to find the class? In qshell and RPG.
