Hi Friends,
I have this scanner program which I am trying to run:


I upgraded my jdk to 1.5 from 1.4.2 to run this program,but still getting this error.I also changed java_home and path accordingly,please help:

C:\>javac display.java
display.java:1: cannot resolve symbol
symbol : class Scanner
location: package util
import java.util.Scanner;
^
display.java:8: cannot resolve symbol
symbol : class Scanner
location: class test
Scanner sc = new Scanner( System.in );
^
display.java:8: cannot resolve symbol
symbol : class Scanner
location: class test
Scanner sc = new Scanner( System.in );
^
3 errors

C:\>java -version
java version "1.5.0_05"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_05-b05)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0_05-b05, mixed mode, sharing)



Thanks

Well it is almost certainly a confusion between 1.4.2. (which as you know doesn't have a Scanner class) and 1.5. Echo the path before running your javac command - perhaps you are not using the javac you thought you were. Have all the 1.4.2 references been removed from the path?

Nope.

Thanks Paul and Steve,
Infact as you said it was a path problem..I had both jdk versions on it...and after removing one of them i.e1.4.2 everything went off smoothly.
Thanks
