Dear Friends,

I am facing a problem related to package.

I have directory structure like this


i am keeping all of my source code in Source\....

and all of my class files are in class\...

I have one java program called in d:\appl\source\test\mainclass folder and package test.maiclass.

Now one more program in d:\appl\source\test\subclass called, in this program i am importing test.mainclass as priminsuflic extends primins class from d:\appl\class\test\mainclass.

Now when i am trying to compile, it gives a error that package test not found.

I set my classpath like this:


One more thing: i am using CodeGuide IDE for java, is there any issue with that ?? i am using Win2k prof and changing classpath in controlpanel->system->env.variable.

Can anybody pls. help me,i am not getting where its going wrong.
