This week's giveaway is in the EJB and other Java EE Technologies forum. We're giving away four copies of EJB 3 in Action and have Debu Panda, Reza Rahman, Ryan Cuprak, and Michael Remijan on-line! See this thread for details.
Well you've made it to chapter 8, congrats! We hope you started from the beginning, or at least near the beginning! This chapter relies on chapter 7 as a foundation chapter, so if you just jumped in at chapter 8 you might miss some important stuff. In any case, based on what you've told us, you must have at least one other class in your directory. Your first assignment is to figure out how I knew that based on your posts... once you've found that class see if you can determine what else you might need. Let us know what you discover.
Spot false dilemmas now, ask me how!

I have read the book from the start ("honest guv").
I tried creating a Dog and Cat class but did not use 'extends Animal'. All working now.
I had/have confused myself how the Animal object is created. I'll read through Ch 7 again and come back with my answer.
Thanks for your help.
