Hi,
I have a strnage error with packaging.
I have the 2 following files in directory
e:\dev\src\Java-Tutorial\coreservlets\
ServletUtilities.java

when I compile Showmessages.java file I got the following error:

My classpath is correctly set(I think !)
CLASSPATH=.;E:\Dev\Tools\mysql-connector-java-2.0.14\mysql-connector-java-2.0.14-bin.jar;E:\Dev\Tools\Tomcat4.1\common\lib\servlet.jar;E:\Dev\src
Even if I put this dorectory in classpath I got the same error:
E:\Dev\src\Servlet-Tutorial\coreservlets
ServletUtilities compilation is fine.

Thanks for help.

You need to add E:\Dev\src\Servlet-Tutorial\ to your classpath. Remember that packages are similar to directories. In fact, the directory a package is located in need to have the same name as the package. If you add the above directory to the classpath, it will then look there for the coreservlets directory.
