    Default Interactions problem with compiled program

    This is my program in order to find two integers that are divisible either by 7 or 11.

    public class Assignment1 {

    public static void main(String[] args) {

    int a = Integer.parseInt(args[0]);
    int b = Integer.parseInt(args[1]);

    boolean divisible = ( a % 7 == 0) || (a % 11 == 0);

    boolean divisible2 = (b % 7 == 0) || (b % 11 == 0);


    The program is compiled with no errors. However, this shows up in Interactions when I try to Run the program:

    run Assignment1
    java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException: 0
    at Assignment1.main(Assignment1.java:8)
    at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke0(Nativ e Method)
    at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke(Unknow n Source)
    at sun.reflect.DelegatingMethodAccessorImpl.invoke(Un known Source)
    at java.lang.reflect.Method.invoke(Unknown Source)
    at edu.rice.cs.drjava.model.compiler.JavacCompiler.ru nCommand(JavacCompiler.java:272)

    What does this mean? What am I missing?
    I am a beginner, so please add as much detail into the explanations as possible.

    Default Re: Interactions problem with compiled program

    va.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException: 0
    at Assignment1.main(Assignment1.java:8)
    At line 8 the code tries to access the first element (index=0) of an empty array.

    The code should test that there are elements in the array before trying to access them.
    The .length attribute can be used for that.

    The program is expecting some arguments on the command line when it is started:
    java Assignment1 <arg1> <arg2> ...<ARGN>
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
