Hello I'm really new to java...

Here's my code:

The thing is, that if you type admin it doesn't work... It just go to the else part of the if statement... any advice?

You need to use the equals() method when comparing strings :

Check this article on Strings.

When you are posting code, can I draw your attention to the CODE button please; it makes your code much easier to read. I have altered your first post so you can see how much better it looks.

And everybody has that problem with == and equals() at some time.
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
