Visual J++ is supplied by Microsoft.  This message is the heart of
legal case between Sun and Microsoft.  The Java license says that
its not Java if it doesn't include all the core Java packages, and
java.rmi is a core Java package.

This messages say that the compiler cannot find the package
com.ms.wfc.app.

The Form1.java class and the com.ms.wfc.app package must be
part of Visual J++ because they are not part of VisAD.  This
problem must be internal to Visual J++ somehow.

Good point.
