Problem to call the event

Hi,
How to to resolve this

Description	Resource	Path	Location	Type
CalCl cannot be resolved to a type	CalCl3.java	/JLib3/src/CalCl3	line 3	Java Problem

Open in new window


using these codes?

package CalCl3;
import JLib2.Calcl;

public class CalCl3 implements CalCl {

}

while CalCl does exists within the another Java project, that is

Do you have that JLib2.jar in the classpath for the JLib3 project? Otherwise the compiler won't know anything about it.

HuaMinChenBusiness AnalystAuthor Commented:
Yes, I did add this jar to JLib3 project.

Mark BullockQA Engineer IIICommented:
If the .jar file is in the .zip file, get the .zip file on your machine and unzip it.
Then add the .jar file to your classpath.
If you run from the command line, something like:
java -cp ./JLib2.jar  CalC13

In Eclipse, did you add it to your project?

If not, right-click the project and select Build Path / Add External Archives..., then select your .jar file.

I already attach jar file to the project (see the attached)

Mark BullockQA Engineer IIICommented:
In your import statement, do not use the jar file name.
Instead use the package name for the class followed by the class name.
For example, if you want to use the TimeUnit class from the standard java library, the import statement is:
import java.util.concurrent.TimeUnit

The package name, java.util.concurrent, is followed by the class name, TimeUnit

Thanks. I try to use package name instead
package CalCl3;
import CalCl.CalCl;

public class CalCl3 implements CalCl {

}

but I still get this

Mark BullockQA Engineer IIICommented:
When you use the "implements" keyword, that means CalCl must be an abstract class.

If it is not an abstract class, then use the "extends" keyword. Then CalCl3 would be a subclass of CalCl.

Many many thanks. One last thing, to these codes

package CalCl3;
import CalCl.CalCl;

public class CalCl3 extends CalCl {
	System.out.println(Float.toString(computePayment(4000,0.5,3000,4)));
}

how to correct these problems?

Ni hao ma wo de pengyou.

Line 5 should be inside a method which must have a return type (void if you don't return anything).
If you don't already have a main method, add one like this inside your CalCl3 class:
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        System.out.println(Float.toString(computePayment(4000,0.5,3000,4)));
    }

I just speak enough Mandarin to make people laugh.

Does you computePayment method return a float? I assume it's defined in the CalCl class. It should return float if you're going to cast it to Float.

I can't reproduce the problem since I don't have your .jar file.

You are using Eclipse, so you can click on the light bulb icon at the beginning of the statement with the syntax error. It will often suggest a way to fix the problem and you can click on it to make the change.

I now only get this

Here is JLib2 project

inside which jar file also included.

Mark BullockQA Engineer IIICommented:
You can either
1. make the CalCl class static by changing public class CalCl to public static class CalCl, or
2. create an object of type CalCl, then call the payment method like this:
CalCl calc = new CalCl;
double payment = calc.computePayment(4000,0.5,3000,4)
System.out.println(Double.toString(payment));

to declare it as static

		double partial1 = Math.pow((1 + interest), 
		              - numPeriods);
		double denominator = (1 - partial1) / interest;

Mark BullockQA Engineer IIICommented:
If the class is static, the method must be static also. Add the static keyword to the computePayment class.

The other option is #2 from my previous comment.
