Thank you Marc! I`ll be passing SCJP soon, currently learning Servlets and had problem with compiling a servlet file, so made up that little example above. Thanks to your input I added additional classpath in my environmental variables and everything works perfect, it saved me some typing in console
hi Aleksander, 1. we have to import the b1 package with its fully qualified name, like "import a.b1.*;" 2. how to set the environment variable: under win-2k: first go to system properties, using the shortcut key "win-key+pause"; then go to that advanced tab; on their u can find the environment variable button, just click that button, now u go system variables part & click the "new button"; now u have to set two environment variable one is "variable name: JAVA_HOME" & "variable value: ur jdk home directory; eg. c:\jdk1.3". then add the new value that is ur jdk bin directory, eg. c:\jdk1.3\bin", separate the new value using semicolon( . 3. click the "new button" "variable name: classpath" & "variable value: c:\jdk1.3\bin;c:\jdk1.3\bin\a\b2.*; 4. now u can compile ur Second.java file, using the below command (in command prompt) "C:\jdk1.3\bin> javac a\b2\Second.java" (under ur jdk bin directory) 5. u can run ur class file using, "C:\jdk1.3\bin> java a.b2.Second"
I will suppress my every urge. But not this shameless plug:
