    hi tyang, sorry, i can't help. but i posted the same question a few weeks ago with no answers and i can't believe that this question is conundrum for java programmers. so, i suggest to make a new thread in the Java Tutorials to clearify this issue.

    It is not conundrum. Java packages are usually .jar files that you simply need to add to your classpath when compiling and running your code.
    If any extra instructions are required then the developers of the packages will specify them in a readme file distributed together with the jars.

    Hi r035198x,
    Thanks for your answer. My downloaded java package consists of .java files and .class files. They are not .jar files.

    Can you please tell me more specifically how to use it?

    Where did you download them from? Did they not give you instructions on how to use those files?

    It is called JAMA and it can be obtained from JAMA: Java Matrix Package
    There is no instruction on how to install this package!

    This question seems to be extremely hard!

    If you have *. java files with you added them in your project, in your source file and use with relevant instance on each.

    I guess there MUST be a documentation related to those source files.

    There is a jar file on that page complete with documentation and an example on how to use the files. Seriously if you don't know how to use those files then perhaps you are way in over your head and should stick with things that you understand for now.
