Java Question on using your own class

well we came up with a simple class, and we where trying to use it, but when trying to import
import wintersclass;
public class usingwintersclassmainprogram
it wont compile, something that worked was just call out the class inside the program
public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException
wintersclass testName;
testName = new wintersclass();
im wondering how can i call out the class to import at the very top

You only need to import a class if it's defined in a different package (i.e. subdirectory) than the class you are using. Javac will automatically search for classes in the class path when trying to resolve symbol names.

Try removing the
import wintersclass;
line from the top of the file. If that doesn't work, please post the error message that you are getting when you compile.

Just a tip, but when you instantiate your object:

wintersclass testName;  
testName = new wintersclass();
You could just do this:

wintersclass testName = new wintersclass();
