    Default error Identifier expected?

    Hi

    Some 10 years ago I used to write Java programs effieciently, then stopped due to some circumstances.
    Now trying to recap java again.

    My PC has Win 7 (32 bit) with JDK 1.7.0_03 installed and have also put the path of "bin" folder in the PATH variable, other wise javac was not working.

    Anyways, I wrote a simple code to test and it gave me some error which I could not understand WHY?
    Please advice as it gives me "error <identifier> expected at line 9

    1. public class tst2 {
    2. public static void main(String[] args) {
    3. System.out.println("HI");
    4. }
    5.
    6.
    7. public class tstinner {
    8. int a1, b1;
    9. a1 = b1 = 6;
    10. }
    11.
    12.}

    I have put the type "int" and then initialise the var a1 & b1 in a single line which is valid I guess, then why is it giving me the error?
    thanks
