That is very strange. I don't see anything wrong with that line of code. Which version of Java are you using? To find out, you can type "java -version" at the command line.

Don't know what's wrong with your code, but this
compiles without syntax errors:

Getting someone to think and try something out is much more useful than just telling them the answer.

i was using 'sun one studio' to compile. how do i find out which version from that? but i also tried to (c:\jdk1.3.1_07\bin\java-version) and got an error message 'bad command or file name'. i am using window 98.
thanks again.

Well, it looks like you should have 1.3.1_07.
To confirm, go into a DOS command window and type:
java -version ( that's a space after java ).
If the java command cannot be found you can add "set PATH=c:\jdk1.3.1_07\bin;%PATH%" to your AUTOEXEC.BAT file and reboot. Don't put the quotes in.
Copy your source code to a directory like c:\temp, change into it, and compile the files outside the SunOne IDE. If that works we know where the real problem lies.
