    Default java.lang.* package

    It is my understanding that when you write a program, java.lang is automatically/implicitly imported for use... I tried using Math.random() without an import, though, and Netbeans doesn't recognize it.

    When I explicitly import java.lang.Math, my program will run (i.e. the method is recognized), but I get a "hint" saying that I don't need to import.

    Any ideas what could be going on?

    Thanks in advance.

    Somewhere in the classpath, you have another class, probably one of your own, named Math.
