include class in other file?

In c++ we would #include "somefile.h" to get the classes in somefile.h included in the current program.

What is the Java equivalent? I couldn't find the answer in a tutorial I have been working through.

Does SomeClass have to be compiled first?

...although if it isn't, the java compiler will compile it for you. (Provided it can find the .java file in the right place; this is one of the driving reasons that packages and directory structures must match....)
