I have a project at c:\myproject

I have a file name as b.java in c:\myproject

I have a sub-directory named as com\sski\ in c:\myproject

In that subdirectory there is a file a.java (package of a.java is com.sski) which is using class b.

I have compiled b.java successfully, But I am unable to compile a.java
I am getting compiler error cannot resolve symbol

Sourece of a.java is as follow

i have even tried using import b;
then i get error as '.' expected

how do i successfully compile a.java, where do i place b.java.
i dont want to put b.java inside any package.

Try to put b.java in the directory of a.java. Namely, put b.java and a.java in the same dicrectory: [c:\myproject\com\sski\]

Now you can compile a.java.

Read more about ClassPath to know the cause of your problem.
