OK, OK, so I'm nowhere near this assignment. While I'm waiting to hear back from Marilyn, I've been doing the assignments that are up ahead. I get them to run, refine them the best I can, and I'll submit them when the time comes. Anyway... I have this in my autoexec.bat file PATH=C:\JDK1.3\BIN;%PATH%; set CLASSPATH=.;C:\JavaFiles;C:\JavaFiles\JavaRanchCommon.zip;%CLASSPATH% and JavaRanchCommon.zip is in C:\JavaFiles but I still can't get my compiler to find com.javaranch.common.* What am I doing wrong? Thanks Paul R
Hi Paul, I'm doing the same as you - working ahead. I had the same problem. I had to put the javaranchcommon.zip in my jdk1.3 dir before the compile could find com.javaranch.common.*. This is the classpath I am using. SET CLASSPATH=C:\jdk1.3\javaranch\javaranchcommon.zip;D:\My_Java\;.; I don't know if this is the best way, but it works. Could you tell me what the %CLASSPATH% does? I haven't been using it.
No luck. It now looks like this: PATH=C:\JDK1.3\BIN;%PATH%; SET CLASSPATH=C:\jdk1.3\javaranch\javaranchcommon.zip;.; Could some of the rest of the autoexec.bat be interfering? I don't know what else to think. I've tried compiling from the C:\jdk1.3\javaranch\ directory. I'm stumped. Thanks for trying, though. Paul R
Paul sorry I meant do you compile directly from a editor or at the dos prompt. Sometimes the editor does not see the classpath and you have to manually set it in the options of the editor. In you statement : set CLASSPATH=.;C:\JavaFiles;C:\JavaFiles\JavaRanchCommon.zip;%CLASSPATH% Try it like this : set CLASSPATH=C:\JavaFiles;C:\JavaFiles\JavaRanchCommon.zip; Good luck

I am grateful to say it now works. Ultimately it worked because Marilyn pointed me to an incorrect import statement. (I had it as com.javaRanch.common.* ; ) However, I know that wasn't the only problem because capitalizing the R was the last desperate thing I tried before starting this thread. I don't technically know if Johannes had an assist or not, but... I don't care. I give credit and MANY THANKS TO YOU BOTH!!!

Actually the capital R came from Marilyn I only cut & pasted her line , remember she is the nitpicker always checking the finer points gee I wish I tried harder at spelling in school [This message has been edited by Johannes de Jong (edited April 27, 2001).]
Have you no shame? Have you no decency? Have you no tiny ad?
