I'm reading a book called Developing Games in Java by David Bracken.
I have finished a semesters worth of java in college and have since then been exploring ways to make games out of java.
My problem is that I can't seem to get these two classes ( Which are straight out of the book ) to work with each other. I'm running eclipse and I am getting red squiggly lines on line 47 and line 73 from the MenuTest Class.
Hmmm, well InputManagerTest class seems to inherit its screen member variable, and I've no idea what its type is or what its getFullScreenWindow() actually returns at runtime, but it seems to return a reference to an instance of java.awt.Window. You can't just assign that reference to a javax.swing.JFrame variable, but because they are in the same inheriance tree you could try explicitly casting to a JFrame. Although that could very well result in a ClassCastException at runtime, because the reference might not actually point to a JFrame instance at all.

Here's the other code in the hierarchy. Sorry I forgot to include this one
