Trouble with Javabean and separate class.

I have two .java files.
DataSet and joData both in a directory/package called databeans in Tomcat in the classes directory of my webapp.
When I javac DataSet, no problem.
But when I try to javac joData it gets the following error:

joData.java:5: cannot resolve symbol
symbol  : class DataSet
location: package databeans
import databeans.DataSet;
joData.java:21: cannot resolve symbol
symbol  : class DataSet
location: class databeans.joData
                DataSet returnrecs = new DataSet();
joData.java:21: cannot resolve symbol
symbol  : class DataSet
location: class databeans.joData
                DataSet returnrecs = new DataSet();
Here are the two .java files


package databeans;
import java.util.*;
import java.sql.*;
public class DataSet
     public String Fname;
     public String Lname;
     public String CID;
     public String Phone;
     public String Email;
     public String CoID;
     public String CName;


package databeans;

import java.util.*;
import java.sql.*;
import databeans.DataSet;

public class joData

public Vector getData() throws Exception

       Connection con = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:odbc:Remedy","sa","bubba");
       Statement stmt = con.createStatement();
       Vector records = new Vector();
       ResultSet rs = stmt.executeQuery("SELECT Contact_ID, First_Name, Last_Name, Phone__, Email_Address, Company_ID, Company_Name   FROM base_Contact WHERE (Contact_Status = 0) AND (Company_Name <> 'Apropos') AND (Last_Name <> 'Test') ORDER BY Company_Name, Last_Name");
       while (rs.next())
          DataSet returnrecs = new DataSet();
          returnrecs.CID = rs.getString("Contact_ID");
          returnrecs.Fname = rs.getString("First_Name");
          returnrecs.Lname = rs.getString("Last_Name");
          returnrecs.Phone = rs.getString("Phone__");
          returnrecs.Email = rs.getString("Email_Address");
          returnrecs.CoID = rs.getString("Company_ID");
          returnrecs.CName = rs.getString("Company_Name");
     return records;


Could someone help me figure out why I get that error when trying to compile joData?

import databeans.DataSet;

is DataSet also in package databeans? if so, you don't need the above line.
what IDE are you using?

try doing javac -classpath . joData.java
(so that it includes the class files in the current directory)
