Java Compiler Cannot Find a Class

  Asked By: Lorenzo    Date: Mar 07    Category: Java    Views: 916

I have a small issue, actually this issue has been bugging me since I
started the java programming language.

Two classes
First Mian.java (main class)
Second Ball.java (helper class)

Now, both classes are public so the access is not restricted.

The problem:
When i try to compile main clas Main.java and in that class there is
an object Ball (instance of the ball class), compiler gives me err
that this class cannot be found (the Ball class)

How come, both are public, and both are in the same folder.

Main.java uses Ball class  ie. Main depends on
Ball.java. So, compile  Ball.java first and get its
class file Ball.class. Then compile Main.java. It
should work.
