Hello!

I have written 2 java classes


-----------------------test.java---------------------------
public class test
{
      int a;
      
      test()
      {
            a=1;
      }
      
      void seta(int pa)
      {
            a = pa;
      }
      
      void printa()
      {
            System.out.println("The value of a is " + a);
      }
}
----------------------------------------------------------------------


------------------------test1.java-----------------------------------


import test;

public class test1
{
      public static void main(String args [])
      {
            test ltest= test();
            ltest.seta(10);
            ltest.printa();
      }
}

----------------------------------------------------------------------


The jdk I am using is v1.4.2_11-b06
javac works fine for compiling test.java but I have problem when compiling test1.java
Here is the output capture:

D:\temp>javac -classpath d:\temp test1.java
test1.java:1: '.' expected
import test;
           ^
1 error


Experts, please suggest what to do!

Many Thanks!!!

Regards,
Bessie

Hi Bessie,

You cannot import test.  If you want to use import, you have to create test as a package.  There is a tutorial here that explains it pretty clearly: http://jarticles.com/package/package_eng.html

slyong, Thanks for your prompt reponse.

Is there any other approaches if i really want to use test in test1 without modifying test as a package?

Had another looked at your code, you want to instanciate test in test1.  Just remove the line
import test;

and compile.  There is an error in your test1.java program too:

          test ltest= test();
should be
          test ltest= new test();
