I have 2 classes both in same package (util.DateParse and util.Testit). I try calling a static method of the class DateParse from class Testit class, and it says:

Testit.java:9: cannot find symbol
symbol : variable DateParse
location: class util.Testit
Date d1=DateParse.parseIt(input);
^
1 error

below are the codes for the class

Class DateParse

Make sure that your CLASSPATH is properly set. If you're compiling in the util directory, you can try "javac -cp . *.java"

public static Date ParseIt(String dateTobeParsed){


You'd better give method names starting with lower-case.
