i have jsp in which i am importing two different packages containing the same classes A and B.
import sample1.A;
import sample2.A;

i am creating an instance for the classes as below
if(x=5){
sample1. A a = new sample1.A() ;
}
else{
sample2. A a = new Sample2.A();
}

I am getting the below error when i compile.
reference to A is ambiguous, both class A in sample1 and A in sample2 match.

how do i resolve the error.?

Remove the imports. Those are only necessary to use "new A()" inside code without having to specify the package. But in your case both classes have the same name, so you will need to omit at least one of the imports and use the full class name (with package) in code - but you're already doing that.
