Basit bir şekilde toplama yapan bir class olsun.Paketi ise tr.edu.iu.math.
There is a simple class which adds two double number.This class's package is tr.edu.iu.math
The class like this :
package tr.edu.iu.math ;
public class addDouble
public static double add (double a, double b)
return (a + b) ;
I compile addDouble.java and addDouble.class created under tr\edu\iu\math.No problem.

On the other hand I have Calculate.java which imports tr.edu.iu.math.Its code like this :

import tr.edu.iu.math.*;
public class Calculate{
public static void main(String args[]) {
double total = addDouble.add(9.6 , 8.7);
System.out.println("9.6 + 8.7 = " + total );
But when i tried to compile the Calculate.java from concole it returns an error : "package tr.edu.iu.math does not exist "

What can i do ?

Welcome to JavaRanch!

This is a problem with your "classpath". The compiler needs to be able to find your compiled class files. The most likely problem is that your classpath does not include an entry "." (dot), to represent the current directory. You'll need to either unset the CLASSPATH environment variable altogether (generally preferred!) or add a "." entry. See for details and platform-specific instructions on doing this.
