What does it exactly mean to have a package statement in the beginning of a java code.
Does it mean :
1> The class file generated after compiling the java file should be in a directory having same name as in the package statement?

PS : Am I missing some more concepts?

Please Help!!!

how line 2 is working and rest of the line followed by it..

actually this problem is about which lines give an exception..
please let me clear it that when we do casting is it reference variable casting i mean does object type created play any role???

Line 15 is just a normal downcast. m is downcasted to C and automatically upcasted to B (Since class B implements Min and C extends B, thus C IS-A Min). Line 17 is tricky. But suppose the reference m points to an object of type B, then the object pointed by m will be assignable to a reference of type A (as B IS-A A). That's why the cast is allowed. So the fact is, a cast between an interface and a non-final class is always allowed. That's because there might be a class that implements that interface and extends that class. Again line 18 is just a normal downcast. Line 19 downcasts b2 to type C and then it is automatically upcasted to Min. Line 20 is also a normal downcast...

but m is null

can anyone xplain this casting problem from line 15 to 20.....
