I've a class "" in the folder d:\practice\com\dan and have a package statement
package com.dan
as the first statement in I want to put the compiled file in a separate folder d:\practice\classes so i compiled the file as
javac -d classes com\dan\ from the "practice" folder.
The file got compiled but two additional folders com and dan were created in classes folder. How can i compile it without creating those additional folders?

Hi Geeta
well, if we create a package then it will create folders you see. Can you let us know the reason why you don't want those folders (com/dan) there?
I agree. Here's the link:
