In the awt 1.0 model, event is a class in the java.awt package so the statement should be changed to "import java.awt.event" OR "java.awt.*".
The compiler imterprets the asterisk in your code as a package name instead of a class name.

I tried the code you  gave - it would not compile
Here is all the code if it can help:

thank you

import java.awt.*;
import java.applet.*;
import java.awt.event.*;





public class ThirdMethod extends Applet implements ActionListener
{
 Label theLabel= new Label("Enter your first name");
 TextField theName= new TextField(20);
 Button pressMe = new Button("Ok");


    public void init()
    {
     add(theLabel);
     add(pressMe);
     add(theName);
     pressMe.addActionListener(this);
    }

    public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent theEvent)
    {
     String newText;
     String usersName;
     usersName= theName.getText();
     newText=getGreeting(userName);
     theLabel.setText(newText);
    }
    public String getGreeting(String Name)
    {
      String greeting;
      greeting ="Hi" + Name +"!";
      return greeting;
    }
 }

Visual J++ 1.0/1.1 does not support Sun jdk 1.1. Your code is written with jdk 1.1 so it can't be compiled in J++.

Where did you get this example? Here's your problem: you have a JDK 1.1 examples but a JDK 1.0 development tool. Let's call it a mismatch! If you want to learn Java, you have two choices:

1. Keep using this version of J++, stick to the 1.0 model, and get examples from old Java books (I would suggest the first version of "Java in a nutchell" from O'Reilly & Associates), or:

2. Keep your book (or whatever source for your example) and find a development tool that supports the 1.1 model.

I would suggest solution #2, because you will have to do this one day or another. I guess that you could get a low-cost upgrade for J++. Or, browse a little at http://www.davecentral.com (or somewhere else) to find shareware tools such as JPad and ED4W.

By the way, just for the fun of it, here is your example "translated" in the JDK 1.0 model. I guess it will work perfectly in your version of J++.

import java.awt.*;
import java.applet.*;

public class ThirdMethod extends Applet
      {
       Label theLabel= new Label("Enter your first name");
       TextField theName= new TextField(20);
       Button pressMe = new Button("Ok");


          public void init()
          {
           add(theLabel);
           add(pressMe);
           add(theName);
          }

          public boolean handleEvent(Event e)
          {
              if((e.id == Event.ACTION_EVENT) && (e.target == pressMe))
              {
                  String newText;
                 String userName;
                  userName = theName.getText();
                  newText = getGreeting(userName);
                  theLabel.setText(newText);
                                          
                  return true;
                }
                return false;
         }
                              
          public String getGreeting(String Name)
          {
            String greeting;
            greeting ="Hi " + Name +"!";
            return greeting;
          }
}
