Hello,

I'm trying to import the following method:

org.jdom.output.Format.getPrettyFormat()

But there's already a package called Format imported (java.text.Format).
Is there a way to import this method, or should I just type the full name?

Thanks,
Lajos

Hi

You will need to import both (using package wildcards or fully qualified names), and then use the fully qualifed name when you declare/initialise your variables.

No - if you use fully qualified names when you declare your variables, you do not need to import them.

You can import one package, and then use full name for the other class

and if it is java 5 and it is a static method you can use static imports

but I donot recommend static imports because it makes code unreadable.
 
Good heavens! What have you done! Here, try to fix it with this tiny ad:
