hi ,

my classpath settings are

classpath= c:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.0\common\lib\servelt-api.jar

and I''m having a Folder called brv1 in D:\JAVA\brv1

brv1 further contains src and classes sub folders

src/com/example/web/test1.java

test1.java instantiates a class test2.java which is src/com/example/model/test2.java

now i want to compile test2.java and put the resulting class file in classes folder with the same folder hierarchy...

i tried this command at d:\JAVA\brv1

javac -classpath %classpath%:src/com/example/model/*.* -d classes src/com/example/web/test1.java

i got the error invalid flag Files\Apache

I have imported model in test2.java

Any help in this regard is greatly appreciated

Thanks

Rajesh

You need to learn how to use your shell, which I assume is the windows command prompt. You cannot have spaces in command line parameters unless they are quoted. You also need to read up on what a classpath is, how it is set, and if you're really keen, why it should never be set.

You're also likely to receive a request regarding your nickname, which doesn't adhere to the convention of this forum.

Thanks for your cooperation.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
