Hi,

I have set my classpath to :

/opt/SUNWips/lib/com/ediet

but everytime i try to compile a java file which resides in /opt/SUNWips/lib, it says the files i'm trying to import which resides in /opt/SUNWips/lib/com/ediet
is not found.

After i jar all the files in the com directory and its subdirectories and set the classpath as :

/opt/SUNWips/lib/com/ediet/ediet.jar

it works! I would like to know is it possible to achieve the above..without having to do the jar file step?

Pls advise. Thanks.

That maybe because your Classes are in  the package
/opt/SUNWips/lib/com/ediet

and you have set the classpath to the directory ediet.
Try setting the classpath to the parent directory of opt.
ie: the directory that contains your opt directory.

The runtime for a class named com.org.Test expects to find it in a directory structure
com/org/Test.class
So your classpath should point to where your directory structure starts.
