hi friends ,

I am having a problem , while compiling a java file .
I have 2 java files :

1) User.java in dir : C:\java\jdk1.5\bin
2) Supplier.java in dir : C:\java\jdk1.5\Temp


Source Files are as follows :

User.java :

package user;

import supplier.Supplier;

public class User {

public static void main(String[] args) {
Supplier supplier = new Supplier();
System.out.println("Reply ( In User ) : "+supplier.getReply());
}
}

Supplier.java :

package supplier;

public class Supplier {

public String getReply() {
return "You will surely get it ..." ;
}

public static void main( String[] args ) {
Supplier s = new Supplier();
System.out.println("Reply ( In Supplier ) : "+s.getReply() );
}
}


Now , I want to compile User.java
I have 2 options

1) First compile : Supplier.java & provide it's path in 'classpath' while compiling User.java

C:\java\jdk1.5\Temp>javac -d "." Supplier.java

After adding its classpath to User.java

C:\java\jdk1.5\bin >javac -d "." -classpath "C:\java\jdk1.5\Temp" User.java


This works good .

2)Suppose i want to use sourcepath option :-

It does not find Supplier.java

On Compiling User.java


C:\java\jdk1.5\bin >javac -d "." -sourcepath "C:\java\jdk1.5\Temp" User.java , it gives error

User.java:3: package supplier does not exist
import supplier.Supplier;
^
User.java:8: cannot resolve symbol
symbol : class Supplier
location: class user.User
Supplier supplier = new Supplier();
^
User.java:8: cannot resolve symbol
symbol : class Supplier
location: class user.User
Supplier supplier = new Supplier();
^
3 errors



Can you people please explain me , why i am gettting this problem ???

You are specifying -sourcepath ie you are saying the compiler that your User.java is in C:\java\jdk1.5\Temp directory which is not the case. Thats why you are getting this error. Use -classpath instead.

Hello,

Don't put source files in original java installation directory. Always it will be prefereble to work outside from installatin directory. Use a workspace to test all applicatin. Make your workspace as relative path to all your classpaths.
