When I imported a class from a default package into a class in its sub package, I am getting a compile error.
I did this as import DefaultPackageClass;
Is this wrong?

Yep, it's wrong. It's expressly disallowed in the language specification, perhaps to discourage you from using the default package for anything but trivial student programs.
Early Java compilers did allow this, but more recent ones don't.

I agree. Here's the link:
subject: Default and Subpackage
Is there a solution for it?
public methods in a package class
access modifiers and inheritance
"The use of the default package is discouraged." Should I worry?
