import javax.swing.JOptionPane;

class person{
String name;
int age;
public void person(String n, int a){

name = n;
age = a ;
}
public String getDetails(){
return name +" ("+age+")";
}
}
public class sortperson
{
public static void main(String[] args)
{
String m = JOptionPane.showInputDialog(null, "Enter a Name: ");
String s = JOptionPane.showInputDialog(null, "Enter an Age: ");
int g = Integer.parseInt(s);
person p = new person(m,g);
JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, "Your Person is" +p);
System.exit(0);

Hey darragh,

You have declared a return type (void) to the constructor person. The rule for constructor is, constructor can't have any return type.Not even void.
