How to find where the imported file is?

heyday2004 used Ask the Experts™
I have a new project, the first line is:
import app.common.service.ApplicationStart;

I tried it, but could not find the details of this file ApplicationStart in the import statement. Any suggestion? Thanks.

ApplicationStart maybe in some jar inside the  classpath of the project. If you are using an IDE like eclipse, press ctrl + shift + T or ctrl + shift + R and type in the classpath.
Once you have found the jar containing the class, navigation is quite easy: a jar is simply said a Zip-Archive with some extra information and can be extracted with any Zip-Utility.
Once extracted, remember that each package represents a folder, so the class you're looking for should be in: app\common\service
