    Default guessing game

    im trying to generate a random number and have the user guess it until they get it right here is the code:

    import java.util.Scanner;
    import java.util.Random;
    public class Welcome
    public static void main(String[] args)
    Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);

    int number;
    number = GetNumber(5);

    boolean win = false;

    int guess;
    guess = GetGuess(5);

    while( win = false)
    if( guess > number)
    System.out.print("Too high. Try Again");
    guess = GetGuess(5);

    if( guess < number)
    System.out.print("Too low. Try Again");
    guess = GetGuess(5);

    if( guess == number)
    win = true;
    System.out.print("Congratulations you win");

    public static int GetGuess(int guess)
    Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);
    System.out.print("Guess a number between 1 and 100: ");
    guess = input.nextInt();
    return guess;
    public static int GetNumber(int number)
    Random rand = new Random();
    number = rand.nextInt(100) + 1;
    return number;

    and this is the output im getting:

    Guess a number between 1 and 100: 67
    Press any key to continue . . .

    I am just a beginner at using java programming and i am using Textpad if that makes any difference at all.

    Hint: == != =.

    When posting code, make sure you follow standard naming conventions, and don't forget the highlight tags.
