Ok, first I recomend you to read Chapter 5 from Thinking in Java, where you will see a section about packeges in Java. Of course, you can read the entire book, is a execelent one, I recomenend strongly to all my friends.
Put the directory "com\bruceeckel\swing" in your working directory. Compile the com\bruceeckel\swing\Console.java which you need, then you can compile your application, and you will
not get that compilation error. This is a the simpliest solution.
Another solution would be to add this package to your classpath.
