    Default Hi, i have a simple question.

    Hi,
    I have this code in my main :
    public static void main(String[] args)
    	{
    		final int Sunday = 1;
    		final int Monday = 2;
    		final int Tuesday = 3;
    		final int Wendesday = 4;
    		final int Thursday = 5;
    		final int Friday = 6;
    		final int Saturday = 7;
     
    		int num;
    		Scanner scan = new Scanner(System.in);
     
    		System.out.println("What is the day today?");
    		num = scan.nextInt();
    		switch(num)
    		{
    		case 0 : System.out.println("The day is " + Sunday);
    		break;
    		case 1 : System.out.println("The day is " + Monday);
    		break;
    		case 2 : System.out.println("The day is " + Tuesday);
    		break;
    		case 3 : System.out.println("The day is " + Wendesday);
    		break;
    		case 4 : System.out.println("The day is " + Thursday);
    		break;
    		case 5 : System.out.println("The day is " + Friday);
    		break;
    		case 6 : System.out.println("The day is " + Saturday);
    		break;
    		}
     
     
    	}

    I want that all the days (Sunday , Monday, etc) will print me the day "Sunday", not a int, how can i do it?
    Thanks,
    Or.

    Hello oror84!
    Can you explain what are you trying to do?
    If you want to print every "Sunday" time you can just add it inside the " "'s.
    But if you want to evaluate the user's input and display the appropriate day you will need a different approach.
    Hope it helps.

    Change this:
    System.out.println("The day is " + Sunday);
    to this
    System.out.println("The day is Sunday");
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Alright I see your problem. Your problem is this.

    all your final int (weekday) = number.

    when you put a weekday into a system.out its always going to give a number... because you set it as a number.

    System.out.println("Today is " + Sunday) is always going to output "Today is 1" because you have Sunday set to a value of 1.
