Hi. This is probably something really little and stupid that I'm missing, but I can't figure it out! I have created a folder in windows explorer that is named com/storekraft/lib. There are other folders besides lib in this path that I am using and importing into my java apps that are working. However, when I try to import com.storekraft.lib.*; it keeps telling me the package does not exist! I have this in my classpath, is there something else I am forgetting? The only thing in the "lib" folder is a JDBC driver file. That shouldn't matter should it? Thanks for any help!
What do you have in your classpath? Is it com/storekraft/lib (wrong) or the directory that com/storekraft/lib is in (right)? Is the driver file you have there a compiled class file (right), or a Java source file (wrong)? Have you made any spelling errors anywhere? (Oh, that would be wrong too. ) You're right though, even if a package just contains a single class, you can import it with: import com.storekraft.lib.*;
And also what is the actual package name of the JDBC driver.. if it is org.xxx.yyy.jdbc then you may have to place it in an appropriate directory.

In my classpath, I have "I:/VSK Java Programs/com/storekraft/lib;". In the "lib" folder, I have a jar file (jt400.jar). I guess I'm confused because before in my classpath all I had was "I:/VSK Java Programs;" and that is working for the folders that were in there before. What is different now? Thanks again for your help!
Import statements are for importing classes, not packages. To import somepackage.* is to import every class found in that package. You cannot import a package that doesn't have any class files in it (so to speak). You said you have a jar file in a folder. You cannot import the location of a jar file. You would want to specify the location of the jar file in the classpath setting. Making sense?
any hints or useful websites on how to create a jtree node from info entered in a dilaog box containing a textfield for the user to enter text into. Say, that node would be called wahtevers entered in textfield after user clicks ok
