Question about classpath?

Question about classpath?

Question about classpath?

I am trying to learn how to create a package. I am reading this link. http://www.jarticles.com/package/package_eng.html

My question is about the CLASSPATH. Not sure where to put this or if I need it.
I am using the IDE Eclipse

I am at the part setting up the CLASSPATH.

STEPS I have taken.


package world;

public class HelloWorld {
public static void main(String[] args) {
System.out.println("Hello World");

My package is in the following directory and compiled.

I created the following CLASSPATH VARIABLE.

Name: MyClassPath_LEARNING

Then I created this class

import world.*;
public class testPackage {

* @param args
public static void main(String[] args) {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub
HelloWorld helloWorld = new HelloWorld();


There is an error with the import world.*;
It is squiggly underline and it states
The import world is never used.

Please let me know if this is enough information or if there is simpler tutorial

RE: Question about classpath?

What if you use


import world.HelloWorld;
