Say I have a package higherachy like this
net.xpack.ypack.zpack.abc
here abc is a "abc.class" file.
I want to use it in my current class.
so I import it as
import net.xpack.ypack.*;
when I access it with
zpack.abc.input();//here input is a public method under abc
There is an error?
please help me to solve this.

I think you have to import the package where it is located...
import net.xpack.ypack.zpack.*;

Although it looks as though zpack is "inside" ypack, as far as Java is concerned they're two separate unrelated packages. importing the classes in ypack doesn't tell the compiler to look in zpack, too.
