I have two programs in the same package but I am not sure how to run the program. I was able to compile using help from Javaranch member. Now how do I execute the same. I compiled using this command.

javac AnyClassA.java SuperClassA.java and it worked.

Also, my question is what do I have to keep in mind while running programs in packages. Please help.
Program1 - SuperClassA.java - has a variable and a method which are public. But the class is default.

Program2 - SubClassA.java - should be able to access the public members of the class in the same package. I have the main method defined in this program.

Like Mark said you, you can look for how to configure the path variables and the compile tutorial.

More information for you: if you have your classes in a package: "Ekak.MyFavorites.Certification.KhalidMughal.PackageA", you can only run the one which have the main() method, in adittion, that if you already have the path variables configurated, you must call the class like: "java Ekak.MyFavorites.Certification.KhalidMughal.PackageA.AnyClassA".

I mean you must write all the path of (means direccion) of the class.
