Please can someone help me...

I work with windows and try to compile next code in MS DOS wih the command:

= code

public class BeerSong {
public static void main (String[] args) {
int beerNum = 99;
String word = "bottles";

while (beerNum > 0) {

if (beerNum == 1) {
word = "bottle"; // singular, as in ONE bottle.
}

System.out.println(beerNum + " " + word + " of beer on the wall");
System.out.println(beerNum + " " + word + " of beer.");
System.out.println("Take one down.");
System.out.println("Pass it around.");
beerNum = beerNum - 1;

if (beerNum > 0) {
System.out.println(beerNum + " " + word + " of beer on the wall");
} else {
System.out.println("No more bottles of beer on the wall");
} // end else
} // end while loop
} // end main method
} // end class

= code

But now I get the error:

class Beersong is public, should be declared in a file named Beersong.java

How can I solve this problem?

Read the error message. Call the file you are compiling BeerSong.java.

Friends,
I changed the name of the textfile but now I have another question:

I got the next message:


D:\Java\bin>javadoc BeerSong.java
Loading source file BeerSong.java...
Constructing Javadoc information...
Standard Doclet version 1.6.0_21
Building tree for all the packages and classes...

Generating allclasses-frame.html...
Generating allclasses-noframe.html...
Generating index.html...
Generating help-doc.html...
Generating stylesheet.css...

I Have no class in the bin directory of the BeerSong.
When I give the next command: java BeerSong
I get an error:


Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: BeerSong
then a view messages and then: Could not found the main class: BeerSong . Program will exit

Can someone explain what I do wrong.

Did you compile the class? The command would be javac BeerSong.java.

Did you compile BeerSong.java.

It looks like you built the java documents.

You need to use the command javac BeerSong.java
