well its been a while since i wrote code.
i am facing some (maybe vv silly) problems.
i have an interface and an implementation class.
since i was trying out package concept, i put the two in 2 java files.
public interface sec {}
public class first implements sec
psvm(String args[])

when i try compiling, i get sec not found error.
i thought if no package statement is included, all files will fall in the same package!
pl clarify this doubt.
thanks in advanced.

maybe you should first compile the file???

Ram Mohan is right. Since you are compiling them individually, the dependencies will not get compiled automatically. You must 1st compile the interface & then the implementing class. Or you can start using Ant.
