anyone please help me.
I'm getting an error , "cannot access KaraokeMachine.java bad source file .com.teamtreehouse.KaraokeMachine.java file does not contain class com.teamtreehouse.KaraokeMachine.java "

I'm sure that KaraokeMachine.java file is in teamTreehouse folder. :(

Thanks, Akhila

Hi Akhila Mobin !

In your com/teamtreehouse/KaraokeMachine.java doesn't have a package declaration. The first line should read:

package com.teamtreehouse;

There are some more errors, but you got this!

What commands are you doing to get this? If it is javac, remember to use / instead of . and for java use the dots and not the .java extension.

Hope that helps!

I think I tried the correct command. Can you please check the following ??

treehouse:~/workspace$ javac Karaoke.java && java Karaoke
Picked up JAVA_TOOL_OPTIONS: -Xmx128m
Picked up _JAVA_OPTIONS: -Xmx128m
Karaoke.java:1: error: cannot access KaraokeMachine
import com.teamtreehouse.KaraokeMachine;
bad source file: ./com/teamtreehouse/KaraokeMachine.java
file does not contain class com.teamtreehouse.KaraokeMachine
Please remove or make sure it appears in the correct subdirectory of the sourcepath.

I will include my work place also, https://w.trhou.se/7a41vxd7xc

Thank you very much for your concern about each and every student... :)

Thank you Craig Dennis. I forgot to add package .As you said, now I'm getting more errors :). will try to sort it out.
