You are assigning 12 to assert which is of int type.

That means you are using it as an identifier- And that's what your error says.
Asser as identifier was only used prior to java 1.4.
In java 5 , it is used as a keyword and not as an identifier.

For it to run, you have to either run it in a version prior Java 1.4 platform specifying at compile time

java - source 1.3 myAssert.java


or simply use the assert as a keyword and not as an identifier.

Hope that was helpul.

Change your code.
"assert" is a reserved keyword.
Use something else for your variable name.

you did compiled it, it said warning, not compilation failed...
modify your class as given below, and then compile it as you did with option -source 1.3, and then execute it normaly with java AssertTest and voila you will see:
this is value of assert : 12.

I know it is a keyword,but before JDK 1.3 can I use it as an identifier.As Ivan said I compiled with option:-

javac -source 1.3 AssertTest.java

Then i get following warnings:-
*******
F:\>javac -source 1.3 AssertTest.java
AssertTest.java:6: warning: as of release 1.4, 'assert' is a keyword, and may not be used as an identifier
(use -source 1.4 or higher to use 'assert' as a keyword)
int assert=12;
^
AssertTest.java:7: warning: as of release 1.4, 'assert' is a keyword, and may not be used as an identifier
(use -source 1.4 or higher to use 'assert' as a keyword)
System.out.println("this is value of assert : " + assert);
^
2 warnings
*************
I am using Wni XP,JDK 1.6

BUT WHEN I EXCECUTE IT THEN I GET:-

F:\>java AssertTest
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: AssertTest (U
nsupported major.minor version 48.0)
at java.lang.ClassLoader.defineClass0(Native Method)

Are you sure that you are running this on Java 6? What information do you get if you run this:

java -version

Yes i am running in JDK 1.6.When I run java -version then i get :

C:\Documents and Settings\Ashok>java -version
java version "1.3.1_01"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.3.1_01)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.3.1_01, mixed mode)

*******
But i have installed JDK 1.6 and it is in C:\Program Files\C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_03\

and in System Variable my path setting is path-C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_03\bin

I think there is some problem in my computer ,because when i try in another PC that have JDK 1.6
that works fine.

I have Oracle 9i installed in my PC so is that cause the problem ?is that I am running all my program in JDK 1.3.How can i run my program in JDK 1.6

Thanks to all

Ashok,

Is the java 1.6 directory really the only element in your path?

What do you get when you open a cmd window and type path?

I suspect that when you installed Oracle, it put its path to the JRE in your System Environment Path, and if I remember correctly, Oracle 9 used Java 1.3.

You can remove the following entries from your PATH; Oracle will run fine with the newest JDK.

C:\Program Files\Oracle\jre\1.3.1\bin
C:\Program Files\Oracle\jre\1.1.8\bin
