first of All ensure that your .java files must be in some "src" directory (ie automatically created when you select a web project in eclipse or any tool). if it does exists then assure that in your project properties , path of the src directory is correct or not.

i hope you will get rid from this issue.

Amir: he doubleposted the topic. You should have followed the link and noticed that he already posted the topic before and that others already have responded there. You need to respond in that topic, not here.
