I want to get the input and based upon it, it should run; How to do in Java. I got the below coding in net. It's not compiling. What's wrong with this?

class Greeting
{
public static void main (String args [])
{
//read in the name of the user
String name = Input.readString("What is your name?");

System.out.println();
System.out.println("Hello " + name);
System.out.println();
}

}

Well, first and foremost, it's in the wrong language. If you want to use Java, you should become familiar with the
Java API Documentation and the Java Tutorial. They should answer many of your questions about how things are done.
That said, in Java 1.5 we can use java.util.Scanner to read a line in from the input stream:
