Java Packages

So I have a folder called "Sandra" and in that folder I have three .java files.
All begin with package sandra; and one of them wants to use some of the stuff in another, so I say import sandra.other;
However this is generating a compile error saying that it can't resolve the symbol, pointing to the name of the class I am trying to import.
Have I just configured my ide incorrectly? I am just using Textpad since the work I am doing is supposedly really simple...

1. you do not need to import classes in the same package.

2. the parent folder of sandra should be included in your classpath

 for ex,
  one.java,two.java,three.java all belongs to same package called "package sundar;".

 If u want to call a function in "two" from "Three", then try to declare that all these classes are public. and u can call without any import command.

the code should be lie this

package sundar;

public class one{}
package sundar;

public class two
static void print()
  system.out.println("Works fine");
package sundar;

public class three{

p.s.v.m (String s[])

I barely scraped through my file io class.
I have downloaded Marty Hall's ProtectedPage files from Core Servlets and JSP, and am attempting to run them.
I've added the appropriate files to my web.xml file.
I am getting a null pointer exception from Tomcat:
     at java.io.File.(File.java:180)
     at java.io.FileInputStream.(FileInputStream.java:66)
I did make the file output point to an appropriate location on MY computer.
It seems to me that I would need to run the  password builder file first but when I did I just get a thread exception...
