I get the following error, I think my class paths are all well defined. I seem to be doing everything ok, but I just can't create my class file from the java file. Please do explain what do these errors mean

You have one of two problems:

1) You are specifying the wrong class names, or have not imported the classes into your source code.

2) You do not have your classpath correctly set to include the jar file containing those classes.

You can consult the SDK docs on how to set the classpath for (2). (1) should be fairly easy to fix if applicable.

I think I have (2) set correctly, so it must be (1)...I've tried different permutations but nothing is improving, can someone give me some assistance on this front.

Thanks

If the compiler can't find your packages, then your CLASSPATH is set wrong -- simple as that. Have a look at the JavaRanch FAQ for a helpful guide.
