Subject beginner question about class loading
Date Thu, 13 Apr 2000 18:36:58 GMT
I am running Tomcat (a few weeks old) (with Apache) on NT.
I am using the default "web.xml" file.

I have a JSP (located in "webapps/mytop/my.jsp") that invokes a bean FOO.Bean.
The bean is being loaded from "webapps/mytop/WEB-INF/classes/FOO/Bean.class".

The bean successfully does things like 

Now I want the bean to instantiate another class Foo, which is part of the same FOO package.
The source file "" (like "") begins with a "package FOO" statement.
I placed "" in the same directory (FOO) and compiled it.

However, the following statement in will not compile:
	 Foo f = new Foo();
because it cannot resolve the symbol "Foo".

How do I tell JAVA how to resolve this symbol and make this work?

Both classes are in the same package, so I don't think I need to import anything.
It must be a confusion about where the class files live, or else something even more basic.
