Hi,

I have the attached code to access a file I have serialized using another programme.

Although I get ClassNotFoundException: DataStore on the line 'data = (DataStore) ...'
This happens when i replace the cast with CG2FishEye.DataStore which includes the package the class is in.

Any Suggestions
Thanks
James
DataStore data = null;
           FileInputStream fis = null;
           ObjectInputStream in = null;
           try {
                fis = new FileInputStream(fileChooser.getSelectedFile());
                in = new ObjectInputStream(fis);
                data = (DataStore) in.readObject();
                in.close();
            }
            catch(IOException ex) {
                ex.printStackTrace(); }
            catch(ClassNotFoundException ex) {
                ex.printStackTrace();
            }
