    Default Problem with Eclipse - the declared package "" does not match the expected package

    Hello,
    I've been trying to learn Java with this tutorial Java Video Tutorial - YouTube but the problem I have with it is that when he started recording, he already had his eclipse set up and started project with file already in it.

    Now everytime I try to do what he does, I get the error the declared package "" does not match the expected package.

    This is what I do:

    Start Eclipse, new workspace in Eclipse folder,E:\Eclipse\workspace File>New>Java Project enter>use default JRE (currently jre7),name "Test" press Finish

    Expand Test>right click on src>New package>name package defaultPackage in source folder Test/src>Finish

    Right click defaultPackage>New File>HelloWorld.java

    Enter code>Ctrls+s to save BAM, declared package does not match the expected package.

    What Am I doing wrong that I am getting the error?

    Thanks for your time


    SOLVED: Instead of creating new package, I just clicked on SRC and created new file, naming it HelloWorld and it created the default package by itself.

    You shouldn"t be creating a new file but a new class. If you tell the IDE you want a new class (HelloWorld in this case) it will create the correct souce file - HelloWorld.java - and put the correct package statement at the start.
