Welcome to JavaRanch. is a package, not a file. Look it up in the API documentation.

A good source for examples of the core Java classes is (you might want to bookmark this). Calculating the CRC32 of a file is demonstrated here.

The Sun Java Tutorial is a good place to start learning about concepts like packages.
I agree. Here's the link:
