    Default Can you help?

    I have a question and I almost completed this. However, have a simple problem which I can't solve.

    Design and implement a program that uses for loops to print the following rectangular pattern with a user specified width, height and wall thickness.


    Enter width, height & thickness: 5 6 2
    *****
    *****
    ** **
    ** **
    *****
    *****

    Enter width, height & thickness: 10 10 3

    **********
    **********
    **********
    *** ***
    *** ***
    *** ***
    *** ***
    **********
    **********
    **********

    This is my code:
    int row;
    int column;
    row=0;
    column=0;
    int height;
    int width;
    int thickness;
    Scanner keyboard = new Scanner(System.in);

    System.out.print("Please enter the width: ");
    width=keyboard.nextInt();

    System.out.print("Please enter the height: ");
    height=keyboard.nextInt();

    System.out.print("Please enter the thickness: ");
    thickness=keyboard.nextInt();

    for(row = 0; row < height; row++)
    {
    for(column = 0; column < width; column++)
    {

    if(row < thickness)
    {
    System.out.print("*"); //prints top part
    }

    else if(row >= (height - thickness))
    {
    System.out.print("*"); // prints bottom part
    }

    else if( column < thickness )
    {
    System.out.print("*");

    if( column< thickness )
    {
    System.out.print("*");
    }
    }


    }

    System.out.println();
    }
    }
    }


    And I get

    ****** // between asterisks. Can you help me?
