Hello List,

I am new to Java, Netbeans, and the IB Java API.

I downloaded the IB Java API software and I am using Netbeans to look
at it.

On one of the files, Netbeans is indicating a problem with the file.

At the very top of the file, the author has placed a package

package samples.rfq;

Netbeans is using a red-dot to the left of the package declaration to
tell me that it has a problem with the package declaration.

It's probably not the package thats wrong, but the location of the java
file. It should be in samples/rfg/

When I mouse-hover the package declaration, Netbeans tells me this:

Incorrect Package
(Alt-Enter shows hints)

On my Mac-keyboard I press Alt-Enter and Netbeans just interprets that
as an Enter (and then I need to undo that Enter).

Try Option-Enter or Ctrl-Enter. Often times Mac bindings are different.
  If either of those work, I think its a bug in the Netbeans UI.

I have 2 questions:

1. How do I work around the Alt-Enter-bug to see the hints?

2. What do you typically do when Netbeans indicates 'Incorrect
Package' on one of your package declarations?
