Importing packages in Java

Tags: , ,



How to import a method from a package into another program? I don’t know how to import… I write a lil’ code:

package Dan;
public class Vik
{
    public void disp()
    {
        System.out.println("Heyya!");
    }
}

and then, saved it in a folder named “Dan” and I compiled it. The .class file is generated. Then, I wrote this code below:

import Dan.Vik.disp;
class Kab
{
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        Vik Sam = new Vik();
        Sam.disp();
    }
}

and I saved it outside the folder “Dan” and it says : “cannot find symbol”

I saved the first code in C:DanVik.java and the second in C:Kab.java

Answer

You don’t import methods in Java, only types:

import Dan.Vik;
class Kab
{
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        Vik Sam = new Vik();
        Sam.disp();
    }
}

The exception is so-called “static imports”, which let you import class (static) methods from other types.
