Try System.out.println("say what you have to say " + obj);

Give System.out.println to display whatever you want to be shown on screen.

Take your input variable through and store it in a BufferedReader object. Then readLine that BufferedReader and assign it to an int variable (for your case).

This will meet your requirement. Hope this helps!

Better to use the methods of Scanner. There are several methods called nextXXX(); one of those will be helpful.
I agree. Here's the link:
