When I change the capital p to a lowercase p it tells me it is an illegal start of expression and gives me the 2nd error as ; expected. I am becoming totally confused on this.

Thank you for your help.

Why is that line in there at all? First of all it's not valid Java syntax, and second of all you're attempting to call the constructor (I think) of MusicCDInventory from within the constructor of MusicCDInventory. I think you need to take a step back from the code, and consider what it is you're trying to do, and how all the pieces fit together.

One piece of advice I would give is don't try to code up your entire application, and then try to compile and debug it. Try more frequent compile schedule like:

  • Add a small bit of code
  • Compile
  • Fix any compile errors (if present)
  • Write some code to test the code you just compiled
  • Fix any logic errors
  • Repeat


  • When I say a small bit of code I literally mean no more than 3 - 5 lines.
