Summary: In this video we start our discussion of Java development. When it comes to developing Java applications, we know that the java files are organized into packages. Every package contains related classes (For example the java.util package contains all the utility classes). Java supports importing classes statically so you do not have to specify the class names when calling the methods (for example, if you import the Math class statically, you can call the mathematical methods without preceding them with Math.). The examples in this video will help us understand the static import, and the correct variable declaration. We will also talk about the classpath and system properties which are discussed in more details in the next videos.
