Getting filename with entire path without extension

Hi Experts,

need one help.. m writing a shell script for which i need the entire path of the file but without its extension.

running the below script gives error at the statement DIR = `dirname $FILE` --command not found.
Code:
#!/bin/bash
jar xvf *jar

for FILE in `find . -name "*.class"`
  do
    echo $FILE
    DIR = `dirname $FILE`
    echo $DIR
 done
