This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.

Also, your import statements must come before the class declarations, not inside the class declarations... [ July 19, 2005: Message edited by: Jeff Bosch ]
