Luckily I am married...

I pretty much copied the following from the Java tutorial. I have tried
all kinds of imports to no avail. Why will the following not compile?



The compiler gives me the following:

C:\SMLocal\SMLogic>javac DateReporter.java
DateReporter.java:7: cannot find symbol
symbol : class DateFormat
location: class DateReporter
DateFormat dateFormatter;
^
DateReporter.java:13: cannot find symbol
symbol : variable DateFormat
location: class DateReporter
dateFormatter = DateFormat.getDateInstance(DateFormat.SHORT, currentLocale);
^
DateReporter.java:13: cannot find symbol
symbol : variable currentLocale
location: class DateReporter
dateFormatter = DateFormat.getDateInstance(DateFormat.SHORT, currentLocale);
^
DateReporter.java:13: cannot find symbol
symbol : variable DateFormat
location: class DateReporter
dateFormatter = DateFormat.getDateInstance(DateFormat.SHORT, currentLocale);
^
4 errors

Now to test it.
