I have a problem compiling my code below. Actually it compiles, however if I put the line Package Test;, and put it inside the subdirectory Test, I get an error saying package oracle does not exist.

I compile with "Javac SecTools.java". I cannot figure out why the compiler cannot find the oracle files, if I put the line Package Test; Any help is appreciated.

Package Test; <<----LINE GIVING ME PROBLEM.

import oracle.jdbc.pool.OracleDataSource;
import oracle.*;
import oracle.jdbc.driver.*;
import java.io.*;
import java.net.*;
import oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver;

public class SecTools{
public SecTools() {...}
...
}

Try Javac Test/SecTools.java

You must be one level above Test. If Test is in C:/programs/Test/, then the command prompt should say: C:/programs>

Also make sure that SecTools(and any other class/interface belonging to the Test package) is in a folder named Test.

When I compile with Javac Test/SecTools.java I still get the error message

----------------------------------------------------

Test/SecTools.java:14: Package Oracle does not exist
Import oracle.*;
^
---------------------------------------------------

Before I had the same problem so I added the classpath c:\oracle\ojdbc.jar to my windows environment. SecTools.java compiled and run.
This is what I type.

C:\Prog1> Javac SecTools.java

Now when I want to put SecTools.java in a a Subdirectory and added Package Test; it does not seem to find my oracle files again.

C:\Prog1> Javac Test/SecTools.java
Compile Error!!!
----------------------------------------------------

Test/SecTools.java:14: Package Oracle does not exist
Import oracle.*;
^
---------------------------------------------------

According to your post, the original error was Package Test; <<----LINE GIVING ME PROBLEM.

Now the error message is:

Test/SecTools.java:14: Package Oracle does not exist
Import oracle.*;

Here is a hint: Java is case sensitive, including keywords.

i could note that package Test; has been written as Package Test; and i think the 'P' should be 'p'.. so i think this might be the prob.. i am sure that it is a syntax error.. but i am not sure if that is the only error which u encounter.
