    Package problem


    I have a sample application all from a java book. All the .java files start
    with "package sample;" and all are in a directory named sample.
    I am working on a pc and when I try to execute I get an exception


    Wrong name search/SearchApp

    where SearchApp is the classname. But the slash seems to be the foward slash
    a la UNIX not the backslash of DOS. How do I get this to work?

    I got it to work by commenting out the package statements but I want to know
    what is the correct way to use packages.

    thanks

    Re: Package problem

    To compile one of those files, you need to type

    javac sample/WhateverClass.java

    and to run it you need to type

    java sample/WhateverClass

    If the book didn't explain this, then I would suggest you get a different
    book.
