I'm currently refreshing my Java knowledge and came across a question I couldn't answer yet:
How does the Java compiler know where the (possibly custom) packages are located on disk? I'd assume that using built-in libraries it looks up the java library folder - but how does it find the custom ones?
Here's the file's locations for the following example:
// part of the package
// not part of the package
Is the naming convention to be seen as relative path? If it's this, why do we need to write "import package com.usuallyNot.example;" (instead of "import package "usuallyNot.example;") even if the file we write it in resides in the "com" folder?
