    Default importing other classes

    I am trying to import the following which I found on the internet though it is not working, it has worked for others.
    I have put it right at the top where import statements go and I am getting a cannot be resolved error.
    import org.jdesktop.swingx.JXDatePicker;

    You need to have the class files that are in that package on the classpath when the code is compiled and executed. Often the class files are in a jar file. You need to find that jar file and put it on the classpath for the javac and java commands.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    JXDatePicker belongs to the SwingX library. Go to https://swingx.java.net/, and download the "SwingX 1.6.4 All - Binary" (1.6.4 is the latest version) which is a file swingx-all-1.6.4.jar

    This jar must be put "in classpath", how to do this depends on: a) if you compile/run from command prompt using JDK tools or b) if you use an IDE (Eclipse, NetBeans, etc...)
