I guess the problem could be solved if you type the package manually.

im not sure what u mean by that? may i have more details?

be sure first if the class name is the same in both the class declaration and in the project files. If you have another class name Test or something else you should copy just the main method. If the name of the class in the project files is (let's say) Test.java then the class declaration should have the same name (public Test{}).
