I am trying to write a class (Login) for a login/password program but I am getting a "tool completed with exit code 2 error" message when I compile the program. The LoginTest class was already written for me, all I am supposed to do is write the Login class. Can anyone help me see what I'm doing wrong?
This is the LoginTest class.
import corejava.*;
public class LoginTest {

public static void main(String[] args) {
int m=3,n=2;
int x = 0;
Login u = new Login(); //declare and instanciate the object u
//default constuctor = Login (same name as class)
String inlog;
String inpass;
boolean y = false;
for (int i = 0; i<m; i++) {<br /> inlog = Console.readLine("Please enter a login id:");<br /> x = u.getUid(inlog);<br /> if (x > 0) break;
if (x == 0) System.out.println("SORRY!");
else {
for (int i =0; i<n;i++) {<br /> inpass = Console.readLine("Please enter your password:");<br /> if (u.testPwd(x,inpass)) {<br /> y=true;<br /> break;<br /> }<br /> }<br /> if (y == false) System.out.println("SORRY "+u.getNick(x)+"!");<br /> else System.out.println("You are logged in "+u.getNick(x)+"!");<br /> }<br /> <br /> }<br /> }<br /> This is the class I'm trying to write called Login<br /> public class Login {<br /> String nick;<br /> Login u = new Login(inlog, inpass, nick); //Calls the constructor function Login<br /> Login user[0] = new Login("jim", "jimpass", "jimbo");<br /> Login user[1] = new Login("robert","robertpass","bob");<br /> Login user[2] = new Login("justin", "justinpass", "justincase");<br /> public int getUid(String loginid) {<br /> String user;<br /> user = loginid; //returns a uid>0 if valid loginid
if (user[i].equals(loginid)) //returns a 0 if invalid loginid
return 1;
else return 0;
public boolean testPwd(int uid,String inpass) { //returns true if valid
if (user[i].equals(inpass)) //password for a given uid,
return true;//returns false if not
else return false;

public String getNick(int uid) //returns Nickname for a given uid
{return Nick;} //accessor method

Thanks in advance!

what does you compile command look like? (for example, are you using any special switches? Are you using javac or some other java compiler?)
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
