On the java import statement:

When you've imported a class from a package, you can refer to the class by name without prefixing said name with the package name. Note that if you import two classes with identical names, the one you import last has precedence.

So, if you
Code:
import javax.swing.foo;
you can say
Code:
foo
instead of
Code:
javax.swing.foo
`*' means `all names'.
