In Comparable topic all the examples and statements assume that it's in java.util package.

However as we know it's in java.lang package.

This can't be typo as below is incorrect statement mentioned in book:
"You might have noticed by now that we have been writing java.util.Comparable. That’s because it is in the java.util package."

This needs to be fixed.

PS: I'm reading it in safaribooksonline

The errata does not presently address the erroneous text of the last paragraph on page 145, which begins:

You might have noticed by now that we have been writing java.util.Comparable. That's because it is in the java.util package.

It presently only mentions changing java.util.Comparable to Comparable in the example code on pages 144 and 145.

I made the errata listing more generic. It's meant to cover all instances of that problem.
