    Default Packages in Eclipse:

    My question right now is about packages. I am using eclipse if that matters and lets say I make 5 classes. Are all classes in the same package if I declare (package myPak)? Then later in a different project say import myPak*.

    Default Re: Packages:

    Welcome to the Forum! Please read this topic to learn how to post code correctly and other useful tips for newcomers.

    Source code in Eclipse is either in the default package (unspecified) or in the package specified by the package statement. There is a corresponding file structure that must be maintained or Eclipse will give error messages with offers to correct any mistakes in the structure.

    You last sentence is a bit more mysterious, so perhaps you can come back to that when it's clearer.
