    Default method undefined error

    I am getting the error message "The method getCurrentTime() is undefined for the type lightQueue, and the same thing for getEndTime().
    I know that eclipse can see my other class and these methods because my lightStatus() and introduction() calls are working fine. I have read a bit about how to resolve this, but none if it seems to apply. THe methods I am calling are simple getters with an int return value.

    	public static void run(){
    lightQueue lightQueue = new lightQueue();
    		while(lightQueue.getCurrentTime()<= lightQueue.getEndTime()){

    Default Re: method undefined error

    First, for future reference post an SSCCE - we do not know what lightQueue is, and where those methods are defined. Second, I would recommend reading the following describing code conventions for the language: Code Conventions for the Java Programming Language I point you to this given the following line of code:
    lightQueue lightQueue = new lightQueue();

    What is lightQueue? A class, or a variable? How does the compiler (or the programmer) distinguish between the two?
