    Default Re: New to JAVA, problem with first code, need to know how to fix.

    The problem is pretty self-explanatory. Your class needs to be in a file with that awful name. What do you have it saved as now? Looks like Main.java. The other, more sane thing to do would be to just rename your class to match the file name.

    --- Update ---

    I've merged your two threads because they contain the same problem. Java classes need to be in a file with the same name as the class.
