    Default JAVA1 - Final Project

    Hi All,

    I am working on my first final project for JAVA certification. I am trying to make a simple bank account. The bank account contains Transactions and my main method is going to be in the Bank Statement, which will tell the Bank Account to Process Transactions.

    I am stuck at my Transaction Level code. Its so easy I do not know how I am messing up. Any help is appreciated.

    Here is my code - (very basic, I know)
    public class Transaction
    {
    	String merchant;
    	double amount;
     
    	public Transaction  (String inMerchant, double inAmount)
    	{
    		merchant = inMerchant;
    		amount = inAmount;
    	}
     
    	public String getDescription()	
    	{
    		return merchant;
    	}
     
    	public double getTotal()
    	{	
    		return amount;
    	}
    }

    Here is the error message

    C:\Users\ch103\JAVA1>javac Transaction.java
    Transaction.java:17: ';' expected
    public double getTotal()
    ^
    Transaction.java:22: class, interface, or enum expected
    }→
    ^
    2 errors



    I have ensured that my number of opening brackets equals the number of closing brackets, aside from that I believe I should compile without error...

    Thank You everyone for your time and help!

    looks like your missing a ";" maybe after "public class Transaction"?

    Since I am only "almost" done the 1st of a 3 part Java certification program I could be wrong but I thought that you only needed ";" after statements and not while declaring methods...

    your right my bad I was looking at the placement not the actual method... It would be a lot easier to read if you put it in the format of [1code]Program inside here[/1code](remove the "1" from each []) that should keep the tabs and spacing intact from copying and pasting it over from your IDE.

    What IDE/JDK are you using. I compiled the code provided using the most recent version of JDK 6 and JCreator LE and it produced no errors.
