I still very new to Java and I'm so confused will this statement when I was compling:

Note: H:\Program Files\Xinox Software\JCreator Pro\MyProjects\college\ uses unchecked or unsafe operations.

Note: Recompile with -Xlint:unchecked for details.

Please assist....

Welcome to JavaRanch!

My guess is that you are using collections (like a List or Set) without proper use of generics. The compiler warning is just a warning -- this alone should not prevent the file from compiling.

To see the exact causes, recompile with the -Xlint flag as suggested.

>javac -Xlint:unchecked
