No need of import?

I'm referring to the example.java and pezdispenser.java.. example.java class inherits from pezdispenser class but that is done without the use of import..so my question is If the subclass is present in the same folder as its parent , then we should or we shouldn't use the import?

the subclass is likely in the same package. I think that is the factor that determines the need for imports. Granted, I'd assume classes in the same package would tend to be housed in the same folder.
