Hello everyone. This may seem like a noob question, but basically in my 'Workspace' I keep all my related assignments for school. They each have their own project, and are usually just one class. For many assignments I need to re-use exact methods that I have written in the past, and it's becoming a pain to hunt down each method I need before I can begin my newest assignment. I was wondering if there is any way I can just call methods and the compiler will go to the default package to find them? Thanks.

No there isn't a way to do this. In Java, all methods are contained
within classes. You need to have an instance of the class to call its
associated methods or the class name to invoke a static method.
