    Exclamation HELP: UNABLE TO CREATE AND PRINT A 3-DIMENSIONAL ARRAY

    //I created this program which creates 3-dimensional array and prints elements of the array

    public class ThreeDimensionalArray
    {
     
    	public static void main(String[] args)
    	{
     
    		int[][][] myArray;
     
    		myArray = {  {  {11,12,13,14},
    					    {15,16},
    					    {17},
    					    {18,19}
    				     },
     
    				     {  {21,22},
    				        {23,24,25},
    				        {26,27,28,29}
     
    				  }; // end of 3-D array
     
     
    			//a loop to print the values of a three-dimensional array
     
    			for(int i=0; i<myArray.length; i++)
    			   for(int j=0; j<myArray[i].length; j++)
    			     for(int k=0;k<myArray[j]).length;k++)
    			        System.out.print(myArray[i][j][k]);
     
     
     
    				} //ends main
     
    			} // ends class ThreeDimensionalArray


    But the program gives me this error when compiling it:

    E:\JAVA_STUNTS\Array_Work>javac ThreeDimensionalArray.java
    ThreeDimensionalArray.java:11: illegal start of expression
    myArray = { { {11,12,13,14},
    ^
    ThreeDimensionalArray.java:11: not a statement
    myArray = { { {11,12,13,14},
    ^
    ThreeDimensionalArray.java:11: ';' expected
    myArray = { { {11,12,13,14},
    ^
    ThreeDimensionalArray.java:11: illegal start of expression
    myArray = { { {11,12,13,14},
    ^
    ThreeDimensionalArray.java:12: not a statement
    {15,16},
    ^
    ThreeDimensionalArray.java:12: ';' expected
    {15,16},

    ^

    Please, can any one help me figure out the error??

    Put the definition and the assignment in one statement.
    nt[][][] myArray = new int[][][] { { {11,12, ...
    Otherwise move the assignment part into a constructor or method.

    What code controls the number of iterations in the last loop?
