Hi I am trying to figure how to get my code to run for the The movietestdrive in Head First java, but i the book isn't telling me enough. It would help a lot thank you. If it helps i have the code in two different classes.

You say you're trying to get your code to run, but it appears to me that it should run fine. What problems are you having with it? Are you getting errors? If so, post them, copied and pasted just as they appear at your end. If no errors, then describe how what is occurring does not meet your (or the book's) expectations.

I think they also missed a few opportunities with their film titles. A few suggestions for the authors:
"List in Space"
"Caddymap"
"Hash Bridges"
"Forrest Dump"
"Das Bit"
"Iterator"
"The Big Heap"

Hey...it's Sunday.

Isn't it funny how there's always time and money enough to do it WRONG?

It’s probably still Saturday in Fiji. Surely the first one, now we are past Java1.4.2, is “List<T> in Space”

Execute it like this, assuming you have got your .java files already written in your “'java” directory, and they do not have package names:-And you will get no output from the code you showed. You will need to add to the methods given. Change the playIt method to read like thisThe \u201c and \u201d bits give you posh quote marks.
Change the main method by adding this sort of thing just before the first closing brace }
