    Question cannot find symbol symbol : class Item location: package platypos.services.order

    Well, I am having a few problems getting this java file to compile.


    /home/brandon/Desktop/platypos/services/order/Seat.java
    Java Code:
    package platypos.services.order;
    
    import platypos.services.order.Item;
    import java.util.Vector;
    
    public class Seat
    
    {
    
        private int             _number;
    
        private Vector<Item>    _items  = new Vector<Item>();
        
        public static void main(String args[])
        {
            System.out.println("Hello");
        }
    }
    here is my terminal session:
    Java Code:
    brandon@Aspire5100:~$ javac /home/brandon/Desktop/platypos/services/order/Seat.java
    /home/brandon/Desktop/platypos/services/order/Seat.java:17: cannot find symbol
    symbol  : class Item
    location: package platypos.services.order
    import platypos.services.order.Item;
                                  ^
    /home/brandon/Desktop/platypos/services/order/Seat.java:23: cannot find symbol
    symbol  : class Item
    location: class platypos.services.order.Seat
        private Vector<Item>    _items  = new Vector<Item>();
                       ^
    /home/brandon/Desktop/platypos/services/order/Seat.java:23: cannot find symbol
    symbol  : class Item
    location: class platypos.services.order.Seat
        private Vector<Item>    _items  = new Vector<Item>();
                                                     ^
    3 errors
    /home/brandon/Desktop/platypos/services/order/Item.java is packaged as follows
    Java Code:
    package platypos.services.order;
    and has been successfully compiled to Item.class in the same directory.

    I am using the latest JDK on Ubuntu 8.04
    I am a bit more skilled in C++ and am trying to learn java, anyone got any clues as to what I am doing wrong?

    Thank you

    I've checked and double checked, and frankly I am perplexed.

    javac -cp /home/brandon/Desktop /home/brandon/Desktop/platypos/services/order/Seat.java

    that worked for me, that classpath thing is a pain : )
