Re: Classpath Problem

Posted by Brian Sanders on November 20, 2001 at 9:21 AM

My Directory structure is as follows


i added the following in the classpath


Add d:\root (not d:\root\pack1;d:\root\pack2) to your classpath. With the JDK, your package statements and directory structure are interrelated. When trying to find your class "pkg2.SUBCLASS", the compiler will look in each of the directories in your classpath for a subdirectory matching the package name of the class. In this case, it looks for a subdirectory called "pkg2". If your class was in the package "com.artima.foobar", it would expect you to have the directory structure "com\artima\foobar".

Take a look at any of the .jar or .zip files in your classpath, and you'll see that the directory structure within these compressed files matches the package structure as well.
