Since it is now working, the class is already in your classpath. This class
my be by itself, in the filesystem, or in a Jar file that you have in your
classpath or in the -cp option to "java ..."
This is more of a name scoping issue. Without the "import .." statement at
the top of your java sourcefile, the compiler is unable to find a class
Document to work with. Adding the import directive makes class Document, in
package org.jdom, available to the compiler. You have imported a single class
in the namespace of org.jdom
You will always need to accomplish this in some fashion. For example, an
alternative would be to not use the import directive and use org.jdom.Document
in every place where you currently have just "Document". This is the approach
that must be used if you wish to use two "class Document"s that are from
This results in a namespace clash
Thank you, Fred Bloom
