It has to be above the SRC, as well place this file in the folder that contains the compiled jar that you are attempting to create.

My base machine is windows. So the one I'm using on linux is John's. I copied swt.jar to my javafun directory with the fruit.java program. I haven't tried john's suggestion of using the -classpath flag, however, since I had copied the .jar file to my own directory, I figured it was in my classpath by default. It still doesn't compile. --le ----- Original Message ----- From: "Corbett, James" <James.Corbett@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> To: <program-java@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Tuesday, September 21, 2010 7:26 AM Subject: [program-java] Re: java compilation Well, I'm assuming that you are refering to SWT-Win32-3235.dll? Jim -----Original Message----- From: program-java-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:program-java-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of qubit Sent: September 20, 2010 20:07 To: java list Subject: [program-java] java compilation Greetings all -- I am finishing reading the java-in-a-nutshell book and have as yet not done much hacking. Now I have a really silly question... I am looking over Jamal's fruitbasket program, which is slick and elegant if you haven't taken time to read it -- the whole program is under 200 lines and uses the swt library for the GUI. But I am having the most annoying time trying to compile it. The file itself compiles fine, but even though I have a copy of swt.jar to link into it, the javac compiler keeps rejecting it. I tried putting a symbolic link to the class tree, which is on linux in John Boyer's account, but it still tried compiling everything as if all the class files were out of date, and failed because I didn't have permissions in that directory. Question: what do I do to suppress compilation of a library that is in my classpath? If I put swt.jar on the compiler's command line, I assume it should use the class defs from there and not go around recompiling everything.
