    I've deleted your other post, but you still aren't using the highlight tags or standard coding conventions.

    What error are you receiving? What does google suggest the cause of the error could be?

    I tried in google but could not understand, also how do I figure out SCC and highlight tags is there any example.


    package test;

    public class test1 {

    class multipleAssignment
    {
    public static void main(String[] args) // Iam receiving error here, it is displaying message " method main could not be declared static; static methods can be declared in static or top level types."
    {
    int i,j,k;
    i=j=k=10;
    System.out.println("i="+i+" j="+j+" k="+k);
    }
    }

    }

    Really the only naming convention you've missed is that your class name should use an upper case letter. You also shouldn't use compound assignment operators like that.

    The highlight tags are explained in the link in my signature, or you can try to quote somebody who has used them, or you can do a search of "highlight tags" in the forum search bar.

    You still haven't posted the actual error you're seeing.

    Edit: I see the error now, I missed it because you weren't using highlight tags.

    Your syntax is a bit off. Why do you have a class inside another class?

    sorry...I tried to highlight tags but it is not working....I will figure it out. In the mean time, I really need help with the below code. I removed the class ffrom another class it was the mistake I made. but, it is still throwing error "Error: Could not find or load main class Test3" is the error valid.

    package test;

    class multipleAssignment
    {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
    int i,j,k;
    i=j=k=10;
    System.out.println("i="+i+" j="+j+" k="+k);
    }
    }

    Read this link to understand formatting tags and other important things about this forum and the forum culture in general. Not that hard.

    Why is the compiler looking for a source file with a main method called Test3.java? Was that the name of your original source file before you started deleting things? There's something wrong with your project setup. What is the name of the file that contains the code you've posted? Are you compiling from the command line or using an IDE? If from the command line, show us the commands you're typing (just copy and paste the command line session). If using an IDE, which IDE? Are you using Windows or Linux or something else?
