Question about package

I developed a big program, now I want to split them into several files within the same package. I tried putting

package mypackage.task1;


import mypackage.task1.*;

for each file. But I got tens of "unresolved symbol" errors.

Any suggestions!

Were you able to compile pre-splitted programs?

If not please post your programs.

Dear Jiju,

The non-splitted program compiles fine. The program is the one for my SCJD test, so I guess I can not post it. Do you have any example that has a package structure with several inter-dependant programs.

If two classes are in the same package you don't need one to import the other. The package structure should match a directory structure, too. See if this writeup helps see how packages work.

A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
I agree. Here's the link:
