    Default Don't understand the error

    Can anyone help me figure this out? I wrote the following code for my programming class.

    package weekthreeassignments;

    * @author fred

    public class Odds {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
    int product = 1;
    for (int i = 1; i <= 15; i++)
    if (i % 2 == 1) {
    product *= i;
    System.out.println("Product of the odd integers from 1 to 15 is: " + product);

    When I run the code I get the following error and how to fix it, but if you read the "Please define" part, I did define it that way. Why am I still erroring?

    Error: Main method not found in class weekthreeassignments.Odds, please define the main method as:
    public static void main(String[] args)
    or a JavaFX application class must extend javafx.application.Application

    The posted code compiles and executes without any errors for me. Are you sure that is the code you are testing with?
    Could there be another version somewhere?

    How are you executing the code?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Default Re: Don't understand the error

    That is my code. I don't know how but for some reason the class was not inside the Source folder inside the package. Somehow the package got created someplace else. Once I moved it to the correct folder, it executed just fine for me.
