but it is compiling perfectly.

From Java 5, you can import static variables from a class that way. It means "Import all static variables from the Date class". It would have been an error in Java 1.4.

Aaahhh, there's no "static" keyword in the import. Forget about the previous post.
It allows you to import inner classes. Check this.

that's good.
i know that import static java.package1.class1.*; is a valid statement, but what about if a class is not having any static fields then import java.package1.class1.*;
works fine? is it won't give any compile time errors? please clarify
