    Default Eclipse - using a method from package a in package b

    Hello again


    I am using Eclipse and I have 2 projects there. Project 1 has a package named "commonFiles" with a class "Common"; project2 has a package named "practice" with a class "SendKeys".

    I want to use a method from "commonFiles" in "SendKeys".

    I added

    import commonFiles.*;

    in my "SendKeys" class but then I get an error message saying "the import cannot be resolved".

    What might be causing it?

    Different projects have nothing to do with each other; i.e. the classes defined in one project are unknown to the classes in another project; unless you link them: right click on your project and go to Properties>Project references. Select the other project(s) your project wants to refer to and voila.

    kind regards,

    Jos
