    Thumbs up newbie: Getting started with java, need help on this

    Hello,

    so basically i am getting started with java.. I am doing work on eclipse, i am making a library project as a sample..

    The library project includes the class of person and books..

    here is my sample class of person:
    package Library;
     
    public class person {
    	private String name;
    	private int maxBooks;
     
    public person(){
    	name = "unknown name";
    	maxBooks = 0;	
    }
     
    public String getName(){
    	return name;
     
    }
     
    public int getMaxBooks() {
    	return maxBooks;
    }
     
    public void setMaxBooks(int maxBooks) {
    	this.maxBooks = maxBooks;
    }
     
    public void setName(String name) {
    	this.name = name;
    }
     
    }

    I have done this, but now i need code by which a user will enter his maxBooks and Name, and also a code that will output name and maximum books of the person, it may be like this?
    system.out.println(getPerson.name)
    ?

    I have only taken two classes of java yet, sorry for this noob question.
    Thanks for reading.

    Please see - http://www.javaprogrammingforums.com...ner-class.html

    As an example, you can add this to your person class.

    public static void main(String[] args){
     
    	person p = new person();
    	p.name = "Johnny Bravo";
     
    	System.out.println(p.getName());
    }

    When compiled, the output will be Johnny Bravo
