    Default First assignment java program

    I am taking a java programming class to achieve my bachelors degree in IT. Not good at the software and for sure not the programming. I was given this code:
    resultOut = (integerOne + integerTwo) * integerThree integerFour
    and told to identify the errors and use the five step approach.

    What am I going to need to complete this code and make it functional?

    I recognize a couple of obvious issues...the semicolon at the end and I'm sure it needs some input statements for the interger statements. Also, body brackets and class header and method header. Any help in writing what's missing is greatly appreciated

    Put it in a source file and compile it to get the compiler's list of errors. Fix them and compile it again.
    Continue until there are no error messages.

    How would I begin the source file? public class Integer?

    Choose a class name that is NOT one of the java SE classes.

    Open a fully functional java program and use it as a checklist to see what the code needs to be functional. So far, you've identified there has to be a ; at the end, a class and a method (either a main method or any other method). I'm not sure exactly what you mean by body brackets. Make sure the name is not Integer, as that can cause you a lot of grief since Integer is a wrapper class for int. Make the name something informative. You may also want to declare a package statement, which tells the compiler where the .java and .class files will be stored on your computer.

    I never learned a clear-cut five step approach, so can you explain what that is?

    Only to ask you to stop, which is the correct thing to do. We have dozens or hundreds of posts here a day, and they're hard enough to keep track of without you bumping old posts to the top. I'm closing this thread. You've been asked to stop replying to old posts, and refusal to take that advice will result in moderator action. This is a technical forum, we don't have time for playground "but you did it too!" nonsense.
