Hi,
I have Eclipse Kepler and I'm new. I have an existing set of packages. I took one set and put it into a workspace. Since making the change, compiling the java from the set that moved is failing.
To be more specific my layout was like this:
c:: \programs\java\src\


    org

      descData

        MakeIndex.java

      jpedal

        objects

          Datum.java




I made a new directory, c:\programs\java\workspace
under it I now have
DescData

    src

      org

        descData

          MakeIndex.java

MakeIndex.java has these lines
package org.descData;
import org.jpedal.objects.Dataum;

The import line is tagged as an error.
I used my Debug Settings menu to add c:\programs\java\src to my class path ( or Build Path) which I thought would have resolved the problem but it did not.

BTW, I have classpath defined as classpath=.;C:\Programs\Java\src and when I use javac from the command line, it compiles successfully.

Have you any idea how I can resolve my import statement?

Hi,

Eclipse uses its own classpath, not the environment classpath. Each
project has its own classpath.

On the project use mouse button 2 and select "Build path"->"Configure
Build Path..." and use the dialog to modify the build path for your project.

Thank Rich,
So the "Run" -> "Debug Settings" dialog has nothing to do with the "Build path" dialog?

Build path is used for both compiling and by default it becomes the
classpath when running. Typically you would never fool with the Run
settings paths. They just inherit from the build path.
