    Default begginer, cant fix bug

    Hello, how can I fix this bug:

    Exception in thread "main" java.lang.RuntimeException: Uncompilable source code - cannot find symbol
    symbol: class tuna
    location: class apples.Apples

    The code is:

     
    package apples;
     
     
     
    import java.util.Scanner;
     
    public class Apples {
     
        /**
         * @param args the command line arguments
         */
        public static void main(String[] args) {
            // TODO code application logic here
            Scanner input=new Scanner(System.in);
            tuna tunaObject = new tuna ();
            System.out.println("Enter your name here:");
            String name = input.nextLine();
            tunaObject.simpleMessage(name);


    Thanks!

    Your error says it all: the code has no idea what tuna is. Where is the tuna class defined? (Btw, it should be Tuna, not tuna).

    thank you, I fixed tuna with Tuna. Here is class Tuna:

     
    package Tuna;
     
     
    public class Tuna {
     
        /**
         * @param args the command line arguments
         */
        public static void main(String[] args) {
            // TODO code application logic here
        public void simpleMessage(String name)
        {
            System.out.println("hello " +name);
        }
     
    }

    Problem is creating a method in the main for the Tuna class, remove the main in Tuna and just write the method for the Tuna class should look like this:

    public class Tuna {
     
    	    public void simpleMessage(String name)
    	    {
    	        System.out.println("hello " + name);
    	    }
    }

    And run apples and it should work Hope this helps. Also this is my first time helping someone did i do it right or did i just give the answer away, should i explain it.

    I would guess that the actual problem is caused by the Tuna class not being imported, but without an MCVE we're just guessing.
