Hi all,

I am currently studying for SCWCD and tried to compile the example on page 176 (the listener test).

I created the java files and first compiled the Dog.java file with



Works fine, Dog.class was created in classes/com/example.

Now I tried to compile src/com/example/MyServletContextListener.java out of the WEB-INF directory with



and I get the following error:



Don't know why Dog class is not found, it is in the same directory.
I think I am just missing sth but I cannot figure out what?

Any ideas?

Thank you!

Hi Patrick,

You need to add the classes directory to the -classpath on the javac command line, otherwise the compiler won't find Dogs.class when compiling MyServletContextListener.java.

Cheers,

Thanks for your help, I tried to concatenate the path to the Dog.class to the classpath, seperated with a semicolon.



The following result:


Well, I do have sufficient access rights.

But then I tried to compile a bunch of java files with "javac ... *java" and now it works.

All 3 files have been compiled and moved to the classes dir.

Don't know what the reason was, but now it works

But thanks for your help!
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
