    Default Removing the import function.

    Hi!

    I just an exam and I was given a program where it imported the the java util scanner.

    The code was something like this

    import java.util.Scanner;
    class A {
     
    public static void main(String[] s){
     
    Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in);
    name = getName(sc);
    System.out.println(name);
    }
     
    static String getName(Scanner sc) {
    String name;
    System.out.println("Please enter the name ");
    name = sc.nextLine();
    return name;
    }
    }

    The question asked me to remove the import at the top of the program. Is it correct if I did:

     
    class A {
     
    public static void main(String[] s){
     
    java.util.Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in);
    name = getName(sc);
    System.out.println(name);
    }
     
    static String getName(java.util.Scanner sc) {
    String name;
    System.out.println("Please enter the name ");
    name = sc.nextLine();
    return name;
    }
    }

    Thank's in advance.

    What happens when you compile your version?

    You have to fully "qualify" all occurrences of the Scanner class name, also in the instantiation expression.
