Creating a package in the .jar form

I would like to allow importing a few classes and package them in a single .jar file. How can I create such a package with the minimal number of steps?

Some of those classes use the names introduced in the "dependent" classes (used during the compilation). Do I need to include those "dependent classes" in the package to be imported?

When I compile a .java file using the classes packaged in a .jar, I attempted to use the statements
import <class_name>;
I receive an error saying that javac expects a dot ('.') in the imported name. However, it seems to reject the statements:
import <package name>.<class name>;

your import statement needs to specify the fully qualified class name

eg.

import java.io.InputStream;

you need to import any class directly used in your class

You can use fatjar if you want to include other dependent jars and package it into a single .jar
