I'm learning Java using Head First Java, 2nd Edition...
I'm at Chapter 5, constructing the SimpleDotCom game...

And I just got errors!

My classes:

SimpleDotCom ( 6 errors )

SimpleDotComGame ( 6 errors)

GameHelper (This one compiles fine)

What's wrong???

PS.I'm using Java 5.0 version ( jdk1.5.0_06 )

can you post what errors you are getting? they actually tell you a lot of what's wrong.

There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors

Welcome to JavaRanch!

There's an extra close brace on the line before the "Out of the loop" line; that messes up everything from that point on.

If you're using Notepad or something along those lines to edit your code: this is the kind of thing that any decent programmers editor would point out to you as you type.

Dear Reader,
Check out the "checkYourself()" method properly. You will see an if condition missing.

I can't believe it!
It works fine now! ( no compile errors! )

I'm so ashamed!! The if condition was there(in the book) and I didn't see it!

But, Thanks for all!!!
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
