Hi Popoe
It might be the common issue with packages faced by all beginner.
If you have a directory called "userbean" and and in it then you should go out of the userbean directory first and then compile the classes in userbean directory like,
1. if you are on windows and having "userbean" in C: then,
C:>javac -classpath %CLASSPATH%;. userbean\*.java
2. if you are on unix/linux using bash shell then,
bash$javac -classpath $CLASSPATH:. userbean/*.java
that should work.
Note that here I try to address possible classpath issue you might face while trying to compile things from "outside the userbean" directory...
I agree. Here's the link:
