      BUG REPORT JDK 1.0.2 javac Solaris 2.4 Sparc

      javac cannot distinguish the same name for a class and a package. If
      there is a class compiled with the same name as a package the
      definitions in the package are not accessable.

      Example: 3 files

      ---- node.java

      package my.test;

      public class node {
          public static final int AB = 0;
      }

      ---- test.java

      package my;

      public class test
      {
      }

      ---- t.java

      class Main {
        public static void main (String args[])
        {
          System.out.println("AB is " + my.test.node.AB);
        }
      }

      ----

      Compile with:

        setenv CLASSPATH ./classes
        javac -d classes node.java
        javac -d classes test.java
        javac -d classes t.java

      The last statement prints the following error:

      t.java:4: No variable node defined in class my.test.
          System.out.println("AB is " + my.test.node.AB);
