class with extend compile issue...

I have three classes in a folder. BookNew.java compiles fine.
ChildrenBook.java and TechnicalBook.java give the following error:

C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.0\webapps\begjsp-ch07x\WEB-
INF\classes\com\wrox\library>javac TechnicalBook.java
TechnicalBook.java:3: cannot resolve symbol
symbol  : class BookNew
location: class com.wrox.library.TechnicalBook
public class TechnicalBook extends BookNew {
                                   ^
1 error

Howver, when I inlculde BooNew.java in the same files as ChildrenBook.java and TechnicalBook.java (with public removed). they complile fine.

Question: How can I compile them saved in seperate files?
BookNew.java
ChildrenBook.java
TechnicalBook.java

I answered this in your last question.

use  
C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.0\webapps\begjsp-ch07x\WEB-INF\classes\com\wrox\library>javac  *.java

I ran and it works. There was a few thing my mind (with a litle ram) was busy with in the last question.

I guess this is the only way to do it. Does it has something to do with "package com.wrox.library;" line we are including here?

I have done many other times by

C:>...>ProkectFolder>javac SubClass.java

with SuperClass.java in the same folder.

Why worked then but it is not working here?

The compiler is looking for the package structure containing BookNew.class. Look at the beginning of  
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/Java/J2EE/JSP/Q_27659256.html#a37799075 
See that I added
-cp "C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.0\webapps\begjsp-ch07\WEB-INF\classes"  
as an option.    
I suggest you learn the basics of Ant. It is really handy.
