Welcome to Javaranch

The import statement in the class A seems wrong - import pk2.B;. The B class is in pk1 not pk2.

What did you try to compile it from command prompt? Did it give any error?

Welcome to the ranch Rohit.

Firstly I think you have a typo in your 2nd class:

You can use the -cp or -classpath command to compile and run the program.

How to do this depends on the file directories your calsses reside in, but here is an example:

Compile class in directory c:\_APIContents normally

Now let's test it, the following class is in c:\_APIContents2 and is compiled and run from c:\_APIContents2

We can use the -classpath option, (shorthand version is -cp), to tell the compiler where to find any dependencies we need to compile our TestATestPackage test class.
Save and compile the TestATestPackage test class in directory c:\_APIContents2 using the following command:

What the above command is saying is compile the TestATestPackage class and look for any dependencies in subdirectories of c:\

We also have to let the intepreter know where our package is and the following typed on the command line will do this:

What the above command is saying is run the TestATestPackage class from package _APIContents2 which is within a subdirectory of the c:\ drive.
Notice how we use dot notation to qualify the TestATestPackage class within the _APIContents2 package, just as you would use it within a java class.
