here is file1.java

public class file1{
public static int i=5;
}


here is file2.java

class file2{
public static void main(String args[])
{
System.out.println("value of i = "+file1.i);
}
}

both are in the same directory(folder). i compiled file1.java first. it got compiled. then i compiled file2.java. i get the following message.

C:\Documents and Settings\Aruljose\Desktop>javac file1.java

C:\Documents and Settings\Aruljose\Desktop>javac file2.java

do you have the current dircetory in your classpath? The easiest way is make 'dot' the first entry on your classpath ie classpath=.;etc;etc2 (colons for *nix) Including the dot on the classpath is not always the best idea, but usually by the time it's a problem you know enough to manage.

make sure that your classpath includes your current directory
by adding .; to your classpath variable
