Cannot resolve symbol 'Weather' error in ActivityMainBinding.Java

At the end of this video, I received an the Cannot resolve symbol 'Weather' in the ActivityMainBinding.java class. In that class, the error occurs while importing com.teamtreehouse.stormy.Weather, where Weather is the new folder created. I also noticed that the ActivityMainBinding.java class is under the path app>generatedJava>com.teamtreehouse.stormy.databinding while the Weather folder is under app>java>com.teamtreehouse.stormy. I suspect that the import statement in ActivityMainBinding.java is looking for Weather in the wrong directory since com.teamtreehouse.stormy exists in multiple places.

I solved the problem by refactoring and rename the Weather package to "weather", with a lower case w. try it and see if it helps. and if it does work, i don't know the reason, haha

Exactly Michael, that's was the error. Package names should be in all lower case (so weather, not Weather), otherwise it can create conflicts with classes (as class names start with an upper case letter). This is what's happening here: the system is looking for a Weather class (or Interface) and can't find any when it should be looking for a weather package.
