    You should either pastebin your code or use:
    Code (Text):
    // code
    Class names should always be CamelCase. Change public class recipes to public class Recipes.

    What is it you're trying to do with multiple classes? You just create the new class and put the code in it that you want. People do this for organization among other reasons. You can have classes for listeners, runnables, utilities, or whatever else your heart/OCD desires (for me it's both).

    If you wanted to create a class called 'Utilities' and have it contain a method like 'getX', you could call it by doing:
    Code (Text):
  3. yea... but i cant make all the things in one class?

    soo do i have to open a new class in the package?
  4. Ok, so after I've transcripted your post, here are a few things for you to do:
    1) Get yourself a good tutorial on Java basics.
    2) Learn about the concept of object-oriented-programming.
    3) If you're not a native English speaker, I won't blame you, but if you are ... wow ... you should really work on your phrasing and grammar.

    For your solution:
    You can import a class at the top (before your class declaration) so that you can use its public methods and public variables inside another class. If it is already in the same package, you can already use it without importing it. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, refer to my 1st and 2nd step I gave you before.

    You can create a new class inside the package you already have or create another package to put the class in. The difference comes down to organizational preference and having to import classes outside of the package you're working in.

    You should really pick up Java before you start writing plugins. Following tutorials on the Bukkit API without knowing the language the framework is written in will only get you so far.
