Hi. I'm now studying static methods and got stucked in one excercise which I found from the net. So, I should make one class which only contains one static method (let's call it as staticMethod). I know how to create it, but then I can't understand the next thing: "This staticMethod should get one scanner-object as it's parameter and it may throw RuntimeExceptions." I just can't get it cleared to myself how I define this method to get scanner-object as it's parameter.

Hard to tell since this example is "found from the net"... But I would assume that the "scanner object" that it is referring to is an instance of the "java.util.Scanner" class.

BTW, you need Java 5 (at least), for access to the Scanner class.
