the following code:
class Animal{}
class Dog extends Animal{
public static void main(String a[])
{
Animal [] ani=(new Animal(), new Dog());
.
.
.
}
}
gives the error "Animal.Dog can't be resolved to a type"
why can't the code execute when it's there in theory!!!

Hi!

Use curly braces for array initialization then it should compile fine:



And you hopefully have the Animal and Dog class in two separate files

Not necessary since they're not both public.

I just wanted to be sure. You never know

Then the curly braces should be your only problem...
