I have my current directories as:
--
  thisFile.java
  Maploader (folder)
     - graphs (folder)
         - Graph.java
---
and why doesnt this work:

MapLoader loader = new MapLoader (aFile.getName());
Graph gf = new GraphImp(); // error here
^


I have already declared files in Maploader to be "package Maploader" and files in graphs "package graphs", also, in thisFile, I have already done: import Maploader.*; import Maploader.graphs.*;

It complains:
   Cannot access Maploader.graphs.Graph
   Bad class file: ./Maploader/graphs/Graph.class
   class file contains wrong class: graphs.Graph


what's wrong?

Okay, that solves the problem, but what about if Maploader needs to use classes from graphs folder? How should it import? I had "import graphs.*;", but it doesnt work now after i changed according the way you said.

no, it doesnt work. There;s no a directory called Maploader within Maploader folder!~

--
  thisFile.java
  Maploader (folder)
     - graphs (folder)
         - Graph.java

what is "MapLoader" that you keep giving examples of?

You need to post more code

see, current directory:
------------------
thisFile.java
Maploader (folder)
-------------------
within Maploader folder, there are files and folders. One of its folder is called "graphs". Thus, at the very first of the question, I needed to let thisFile use files from "graphs", so your first solution works.

But now, files within Maploader also needs to use files from "graphs". So, i should just do "import graphs.*;" in any files within Maploader (folder). But it doesnt work.

um....u get what I mean?

No, if your class root is the same directory as the "thisFile.java", you need to do:

import Maploader.graphs.* ;

as imports are absolute, not relative...

Okay, post more code:

-----------------------------------------------------------
package Maploader;

import java.io.*;                          
import java.util.Vector;
import graphs.Graph;
import java.util.StringTokenizer;

public class MapLoader {

    private String token;
    private Graph mapGraph;
               ^ // error: bad class file: class file contains wrong class file
-----------------------------------------------------------

package Maploader.graphs;

public interface Graph {
            
        // Set the area points of this factory map
        public void addAreaPoints (int x, int y);
     
        // Set name for this map
        public void setMapName(String name);

        // Get the name of this map
        public String getMapName();
      
..............
---------------------------------------------------------------

Oh, so you mean..um...I should do "import Maploader.graphs.*;" in each files in "Maploader" and then compile within the directory of "thisFile.java"??? I could compile fine at "thisFile" directory, but got that error when i run it in "cd Maploader". So...could that be the reason?

Yeah, when you run it in "cd Maploader", your classpath will be wrong...

Run it in the directory above that with:

  java Maploader.MapLoader

Ic.....alright, just to confirm:
----------------------------------
For thisFile.java:

import Maploader.*;
---------------------------------
For files in Maploader folder:

import Maploader.graphs.*;
--------------------------------

and then within the directory of thisFile, run javac *.java. ~ ei?
