Object creation

I have an Object which consists of a Date and a Vector. I'm glad this is a Beginner Forum because I'm sure what I'm missing is simple. Here is some code:
newObject (Date myDate, Vector my Vector);
public void createNewObject(Vector inVector){
Date newDate = new Date();
newObject myObject = new newObject(newDate, inVector);
The message I get is that the compiler cannot resolve the symbol "new" in the creation of newObject. Suggestions?

Could you post all of your code, not just this fragment? In particular, show us the "newObject" class.

I was working with my code and someone else's together and didn't notice they were using the default constructor, and those fields were data members and not parameters. Sorry, guys. Thanks.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
