I've the following directory structure

-- contains :-

package EnumTest;

public class Test{
MyEnum e;
} contains

package EnumTest;
public enum MyEnum {FIRST,SECOND}

When I try to compile, it can't find symbol MyEnum. However if I
remove package statement from both source files this code works. How can I
compile the code with package statment ?
