I have a java program called Balance.java which I have saved in H:\myPack.
I compiled and kept my Balance.class file in H:\myPack. now I have another program (TestBalance.java saved in H:\> )which is using Balance.java program
while compileing I am geting the following error H:\>javac TestBalance.java TestBalance.java:1: package myPack does not exist import myPack.*; ^ TestBalance.java:6: cannot resolve symbol symbol : class Balance location: class TestBalance Balance test = new Balance("Johnosn", 1000.0); ^ TestBalance.java:6: cannot resolve symbol symbol : class Balance location: class TestBalance Balance test = new Balance("Johnosn", 1000.0); ^ 3 errors ---------------------------------- but I can able to run the code if I include the Balance class inside the TestBalance.java file. like
I doubt some how my code is not able to locate the package, is this may be due to some 'CLASSPATH' setting? not able to find out! Thanks in advance Regards Johnson
Hi Johnson, It seems there is a CLASSPATH problem. IN order for a package to be found, the classpath should be till before the directory. In your example. the classpath should consist of the path till H:\ even though the .class file is in H:\mypath. Hope this helps Sri
Yes, try setting the classpath to the H, but i think it should compile, the compiler tries to find it without the class path!!! maybe there is something wrong with your compiler!!! I tested on j2sdk 1.4, and it works, i did not set the classpath to the directory.
One thing to remember is that importing stuff is all about where the class files are and that your classpath points the "root" for the packages you want to use. Where your source code is really doesn't matter (except in some project build master's / source control nazi's head...but I'm getting off topic here).
