    I don't think that anybody will be bothered to compile and run all that stuff. What compiler errors do you get? What runtime Exceptions do you get? Post the full error messages.

    Ya i know... there are no compiling errors... the output which i m getting of System.out.println("Book Issued To " +boo.getNameOfPerson()); in library.java is null... Just call the getBookLend() method in Execution.java .... please help me.

    Ok. You have six different books. You have two members.
    book6.bookLend(6,"nu"). Book "How to?" is lend to a person "nu" , who isn't even a member.
    lib.getBookLend("C++"); -> NULL, because no member has that book.

    Everything is good. Your code works as expected.

    --- Update ---

    Another one: do the books lend themselves (book6.bookLend) , or rather the library (lib.bookLend(bookName, memberName))?
