Default Beginning JSP Web Development Book - Struts questi

I am trying to compile the ValidateEmployeeAction class and I get:
"cannot resolve symbol" error on the line of code that tries to cast the ActionForm parameter to the application ActionForm EmployeeForm class we need to specify here is the begining snippet that causes the problem:
"// This is the Action class ValidateEmployeeAction.java

package com.example;
import org.apache.struts.action.ActionForm;
import org.apache.struts.action.ActionForward;
import org.apache.struts.action.Action;
import org.apache.struts.action.ActionMapping;
import org.apache.struts.action.ActionErrors;
import org.apache.struts.action.ActionError;

import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponse;
import javax.servlet.ServletException;

import java.io.IOException;
import java.util.List;

public class ValidateEmployeeAction extends Action
    public ActionForward perform(ActionMapping mapping,
            ActionForm form,
            HttpServletRequest request,
            HttpServletResponse response) throws IOException,ServletException
        ActionErrors errors = new ActionErrors();
        EmployeeForm empForm = (EmployeeForm)form; ---This is the error line"

I am guessing it cannot find the EmployeeForm class but I don't know why? I wrote exactly as it is in the book. Maybe I am missing something...sorry I know I am.
Any help is appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Thanks for the feedback. I actually had to compile them all together using:

javac *.java

and then it compiled OK. I am still having problem trying to compile classes that reside in different packages. Do all classes have to be in the same folder when they are compiled for all of this to work? Any information on compiling classes and packages?
Thanks very much. :)
