This is a program from the book head first java
when i try to compile this,the compiler tells me that the class SimpleDotCom should be declared in a file Called
So When i put the class in its own file the compiler then tells me that it can not find the symbol for this line of code
SimpleDotCom dot = new SimpleDotCom();

Here is my Code

I copied word for word from the book. still no luck
Any suggestions
Thank you
