Thanks for the responses to my JSDK compile question. I FINALLY got something to compile and run. Here is my next problem. I am running a very short program similar to HelloWorld. The only difference is I am printing out 5 lines instead of just one. If I compile the program with the first line only, it compiles fine. But when I add the next line, it errors out with "cannot resolve symbol: Method printIn". I'm coding exactly as my book shows, but getting no where with this.

Is everything capitalized exactly like in the book? Java is case sensitive.

Is it a short program? If so, go ahead and post it hear. Use the UBB code tags before and after please so it formats nice

You might want to double-check the name of the method you're using. The method is "println()", not "printIn()". "println()" is short for "print line", so that's a lowercase-L in there, and not an uppercase-I.
Enjoy this journey that is Java,

Art, thank you. Your suggestion did it! The font type in my book is hard to distinguish between I and l, and I had been using the I. Thanks again!

Whenever you get that error on a method check spelling and capitalization.
I agree. Here's the link:
