I don't understand where I'm going wrong here. I've got 2 classes in the same package, one of which (DBAccess.java) accesses the other class Coins.java In the dos prompt I change the working directory to where the java files are located and then type this command: javac -classpath .com/project/databases/DBAccess.java When I hit enter, it executes the command and gives the impression that it has compiled both java files. When I do dir, it hasn't created any class files?? Any ideas???
