Packages - Accross Files
Posted by karthik on May 18, 2000 at 10:57 PM
I have small program which has a base class (class name: "base"), with a defualt constructor wich just prints base's member variable. The scope of this class and the constructor is "Public". I create this in a package "MyPack" and save in a file called base.java.
I have a different file called derived.java which imports the package "MyPack" and it derives from class base. In this class i just print the value of base class value.
I have a third file called "demo.java" which has the main method creating an object of the derived class.
Now i store these 3 files in a directory c:\test\*.java
I want to compile these 3 files and put the resulting .class files in the directory c:\test\MyPack.
The problem i'm facing is : the first file base.java gets compiled and puts the base.class file in
c:\test\MyPack\base.class. Now while compiling derived.java, it gives a error that the "base class is not found".
i compiled like :c:\test\> javac -d c:\test\MyPack\ derived.java
I tried with -classpath option also. It's still giving the same error. How to compile this and what could be reason for the error?
