      Description


      allan.jacobs@Eng 1997-03-31

      Compile a program unit containing a public class. Then compile another
      program unit that imports that class. The second compilation will fail,
      complaining that "Only public classes and interfaces in other packages
      can be accessed."
       
      For instance try compiling JCK test lang/BINC/binc006/binc00601/binc00601.html.
      This test requires separate compilation of two program units, binc00601a.java
      and binc00601.java (in that order). The test fails unexpectedly because
      of compilation errors. Below is a recreation of the steps taken by the
      JCK harness in attempting to compile and execute this test.

      If the program units are compiled together there is no problem.
