Hi there, im creating an online shop. I have made a product class (product bean) that is instanced every time the user wants to add a product to their cart. I have created a ShoppingServlet that handles the add, delete, view cart etc business logic therefore i use the product class in this servlet.  Eventhough the Product class is in the same directory as the ShoppingServlet the compiler does not resolve the symbol Product in (Product p = ...).

I have tried using a package, including it in the classpath but still no luck.  I must have a config prob somewhere but iv checked couple of times.

May be u can help me?

Is either of the classes in a package? Make sure there are no conflicts with other Product that could be in the classpath

Did you use an IDE to create the Java files?

Then make sure Product is added to the project or whatever your IDE calls it (probably through the menu)

Thanks for the abundance of information in your response.

Look at the classpath used for the compiler in your IDE, as I am assuming that compilation works fine there. Also, there might be console output from the IDE that tells you exactly how your Java files were compiled.

Oh yes - i forgot - you're going from IDE to command line. That's absolutely right. IDEs tend to build their own, often sizeable, classpaths

Yeah, if you're compiling from the command-prompt, you should see that the classes are there in the class-path of your system (because IDEs don't use system-classpath).

You can set the class-path this way: set classpath=%classpath%;c:\myfolder\....;.

// c:\myfolder\.... -> contains the .class files that you need

-> if you have the classes in a package, then set the classpath only till the parent directory of the package-folder

More on classpath: http://www.mindprod.com/jgloss/classpath.html

Which IDE are you using, BTW?
