When I try to compile the generated Java files for the test example that OSS provides, I get a compile error.

If you are getting javac compile errors that OSS packages can not be found, such as the following:

>javac *.java  

Baseball.java:21: Package com.oss.asn1 not found in import.  

import com.oss.asn1.*;  

then it is likely that the environment variable CLASSPATH was not set. You should have an ossvars.bat (Windows) or ossvars.sh (Unix) in your OSS directory.

If you are running Windows, run the ossvars.bat file from the command prompt window to set your environment variables for the life of that window. Or you can do it manually from the command prompt as:

 set OSS_ASN1_JAVA=D:\OSS\asn1pjav\win32\1.1\  
set PATH=%OSS_ASN1_JAVA%\bin;%PATH%  
set CLASSPATH=..;%OSS_ASN1_JAVA%\lib\oss.jar;%CLASSPATH%

If you prefer to set the above environment variables permanently, you would need to use the Windows control panel.

The samples included with some of the Knowledge Center answers are meant for your general understanding of the OSS products. Different versions of the products might produce slightly different outputs. Consult the products documentation and samples for the most up-to-date products information and code examples.
