Class Import Can't be Resolved

Hey All,

I created a class that I want to use for encrypting a string with RC4 and then return the encrypted string only problem is I seem to be having trouble getting the class to import. I am not sure if my import statement is wrong or if there is an issue with my class.

So I put my compiled class file into 'WEB-INF/classes' folder and here is the class code (code is sloppy now but I will clean it up once I have my class working),


Then in my jsp file this is what I put,


But when I run the jsp this is what I get (had to use code tag because of abbreviation rule on forum),


I am guessing it is something simple that I am doing wrong but can't seem to figure out what it is. Any help is appreciated.

Did you put your RC4 class into a package? If you didn't, then that's your problem. A class which is in a package (e.g. your JSP) can't import a class which isn't in a package.

So put it in a package. And remember that you then have to build a directory structure under WEB-INF/classes which corresponds to that package.

I did not put the class in a package. So i added it to one and update the folder structure in the WEB-INF/classes directory and now it works great.

Do you always have to have your classes in a package? I thought that if I did not have a package set that I could use the class name only for the import.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
