Hi,
In Java, is there some thing called "Default Package", if there is then how can we import classes from that package to a named package.

ie. In BEA Workshop for WebLogic Version: 10.1, i have created a Java Project and createdan interface " public interface A " which comes under the folder (default package) as i did n't provide a package name.

later when i create a package named "pack" and created a class that needs to implement the above created interface , how can i access it ???

is it possible???


Thanks

Yes , It is possible, only make sure that you have that default package folder on classpath , !

Even though it is possible to use the default package, it is not recommended that you use it at all in web applications because of the fact that web applications often have to deal with multiple class loaders.

If you know how to set CLASSPATH variable from command prompt or in system environment, then it is simple OR look here to set classpath variable .

As of JDK 1.4, you cannot import classes from the default package into non-default classes. See this JSP FAQ entry for more information.
