    Default Call class method from another class

    So I am creating a Netflix based application for a school assignment. So yes this is homework. I created a userinterface that looks like the following

    import java.io.IOException;
    import java.util.Queue;
    import java.util.Scanner;
    public class UserInterface extends Users {
    	public UserInterface(String userName, double accountNumber,
    			Queue<Movie> playList, Queue<Movie> lastMovies) {
    		super(userName, accountNumber, playList, lastMovies);
    	public static void main(String[] args){		
    		Scanner keyboard = new Scanner(System.in);
    			System.out.println("X) Exit");
    			System.out.println("0) Create a new movie");
    			System.out.println("1) Add Movie to your playlist");
    			System.out.println("2) Upgrade your account");
    			char c = keyboard.next().charAt(0);
    				case 'X':
    				case '0':
    				case '1':
    					for(int i= 0; i < playList.size(); i++)
    				case '2':
    					System.out.println("Small one time free of $10,000,000!");

    so now what I am running into is the "case '0'" selection, where I am trying to just call "createMovies;" which is a method inside another class which looks like the following

    import java.util.Date;
    import java.util.Scanner;
    public class createMovie 
    	public Scanner keyboard = new Scanner(System.in);
    	public static void main(String args[])
    public void createMovies()
    	String password = "adminpassword";
    	boolean isAdmin = false;
    	double inputPrice = 0;
    	String inputMovie;
    	String inputGenre;
    	Date inputDate = new Date(); 
    	String inputPassword;
    	System.out.println("Enter Movie Title:");
    	inputMovie = keyboard.nextLine();
    	System.out.println("Enter Movie Genre:");
    	inputGenre = keyboard.nextLine();
    	System.out.println("Enter Admin Password:");
    	inputPassword = keyboard.nextLine();
    	passCheck(inputPassword, password, isAdmin);
    	adminPower(isAdmin, inputPrice);
    	Movie movies = new Movie(inputMovie, inputDate, inputGenre, inputPrice);
        public void passCheck(String inputPassword, String password, boolean isAdmin)
        if(inputPassword == password)
        	isAdmin = true;
        else System.out.println("Sorry wrong password");
        public void adminPower(boolean isAdmin, double inputPrice)
    	if (isAdmin == true)
    		System.out.println("Enter Movie Price:");
    	inputPrice = keyboard.nextDouble();

    and without adding more code to this post I will just say this creates a Movie object, that I will later have saved to a Movie selection linked list, and then allow the user to select movies out of that list.

    So the problem is I can't get the function to call properly inside my interface class. How would I go about doing this? I tried creating a "createMovie movies = null;" and then passing it through the function like so "movies.createMovies(); but apparently that doesn't actually do anything because it is null.

    Default Re: Call class method from another class

    Ever tried "createMovie movies = new createMovie();" and "movies.createMovies()"? That would probably do you good.

    Just a heads up, where is the "break;" in case 'X' or case '0'?
