Subject Re: No package found

Heres my take
If I am coding a once - y thing and it WORKS and I say wait a minute
this is a waste of time since I am doing the SAME operation for all entities in a container
namely all file(s) in the folder
then I extract out the file specific stuff namely filename.extension and then use the folder

the level of sophistication of Java Developer should know that when I point to this source
folder thats it
If my equipment is pointing at the Sun when I should be pointing at Mars I might fry the equipment
thats ok
after all we're all professionals and we're supposed to know what we're doing..I said supposed

My suggestions is Dont look for packages or anything else..thats way too much handlholding
besides thats the implementor's job

So the same functionality that works for srcdir should work the SAME for sourcepath except
its not looking for a specific file its looking at the folder..

Other than that...Hows life in oregon these days??
As always Its expensive living here in the democratic republic ...
