Hello All,

New to Java and trying very hard... but not making much progress..

I am trying to import a package. The code is ....

import package com.javaranch.common.*;

My class file is in "E:\java\Myjava"

and the package is stored in "E:\java\Myjava\com\javaranch\common"

I have double checked my classpath and the spelling,etc, and the import statement is the first line in my source file.

When I try to compile, I get two errors:

"<identifier> expected" and " '.' expected "

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thx in advance


Herbie

What are you trying to achieve here, an import or a package declaration?
In either case your code is wrong.

Use either

OR
(and the second is highly discouraged as you're not the maintainer of the package, you should put classes in packages of your own, not those of others).
