Are you compiling from the command line or from some shortcut within Textpad?

compiling from the "Tools" menu within Textpad.

however, i have finally managed to get the programme to compile...
now the problem lies with running it....

here's the output i keep on getting:

C:\Quellen\gru\ cannot find symbol
symbol: class TestCase
public class MyTestClass extends TestCase
C:\Quellen\gru\ cannot find symbol
symbol : class Test
location: class MyTestClass
public static Test suite() {

*PS: the markers actually point to "TestCase" and "Test" (and not public as is seen in the above output) obviously my .jar file isnt beeing found right?


javac: invalid flag: ArrayListTst01
Usage: javac <options> <source files>
where possible options include:
-g Generate all debugging info

I've been on ths for ridiculously long,....i havent even gotten down to understanding how to use the tool properly,....very frustrating indeed! :-/
