hi how do i change this code to limit user attempts to 3?

public void validateUser(String name, String password) {
if (name.equals("admin") && password.equals("letmein")) {
} else {
public void tryAgain() {
Alert error = new Alert("Login Incorrect", "Please try again", null, AlertType.ERROR);

Many thanks

Welcome to the JavaRanch, Dan.

Question #1: Is this supposed to have anything at all to do with Java Mobile Edition?

Question #2: What sort of system is this code supposed to be part of? Is it web-based? An applet? Servlet? Stand-alone application?

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
