Is your project BusConnectorSDK_1.1.7, or is that the jar file that you are trying to access in another project. If that's the project, there is a problem when you imported the files into Eclipse. If it's a jar file, look at your current project's properties and make sure the jar file exists in the Java Build Path properties, Libraries tab.

From the error message, it sounds like it's the project. There is a good Eclipse tutorial where the author imports existing files. I'll try to find the URL for you.

This is not the name of my project .I dont think it is the name of a jar because it would not run in test nor should it compile if there was a dependency on it .
Thanks for help

Sorry, the tutorial I was thinking of was for Struts, not Eclipse. I did find a URL for an Eclipse tutorial which describes importing folders for existing code.


Good luck,

OK, if it's not the project and not a jar file, we have to think of another way to troubleshoot. Are you familiar with Ant? If so, you could run an Ant build from the command line. That will print out the class which triggers the error. If not, you can set up a DOS batch file or Unix script to compile manually using javac with verbose messages.

look at these two locations.

Project->Properties->Java Build Path->Projects (Tab)

Project->Run As->Run->Class Path (Tab)
