    Default Basic Java help in Eclipse

    I am taking an intro class to Java programming. All I need to do, is replicate the exact code that my professor has. As simple as I thought this would be (who was I kidding?), I am still having trouble. I am using Eclipse IDE for Java Developers (It is what my professor told us to use). The error I am getting on the first line states: the declared package does not match the expected package. How do I see what the expected package is?

    Can anyone recommend a video tutorial on the basics of the basics for Eclipse? My only experience is the very fundamentals of C++ where I used X-Code.

    Hello, it means that the package that you have mentioned in your code is not the exact location where your java program resides. Kindly check both and correct the declaration in your program code.

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

    Though you should understand how to use your tools and why you're getting this error, Eclipse will fix it for you, if you let it. The reason you're getting the error is because you've stored the code in a location not described by the project and package name, probably in the project's default /src folder. To get Eclipse to fix the error for you, HOVER over the package name, review the correction options that come up, and select one of them. If you are required to use the package name, then the correction option you should select should say something like "fix package structure", or "save source in new package", etc. I forget exactly what it says.

    There are hundreds, probably thousands of Eclipse "getting started" tutorials that pretty much all say the same thing. Getting started can only cover so much. I don't watch video tutorials, so I'm not sure how many of those you'll find, but I'm sure they are out there. The Eclipse Wiki is also an excellent source of info, but you'll actually have to read the wiki.

    Thumbs up Re: Basic Java help in Eclipse

    Thank you!

    For some reason, as soon as I re-opened Eclipse it seemed to have fixed itself. I will definitely take a look at the wiki and tutorial videos.
