    Default Public static void (String[] args)

    Heya folks!

    I've recently started learning java because i'd like to create my own games, i'll stay here until i have mastered the ways of java (which will probaly be a very long time) I already have prior Lua exprience. This is my very very first code, i know it probaly looks horrible to all you advanced java coders. Oh well, here i go.

    class helo {
    	public static void main(String[] args) {
    	bob = Bob();

    I'm expecting it to print out 10. Why isn't this happening?

    Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to the forum!

    By convention, Java class names are capitalized.

    Your expectations are not yet aligned with Java reality. What does the program do or what does the compiler report when you try to compile and/or run the program? Post any compiler errors that you want help with.

    What guide or tutorial are you using to study Java?

    What happens instead?

    You haven't posted the code for the Bob class, so it's pretty hard to tell you what's going on.

    Also, you should really follow the Java naming conventions (classes start with an upper-case letter, methods and variables with a lowercase letter) and formatting (indent the code inside a method).
