    Question bicyclejava.BicycleJava class wasn't found in Bicycle.java project

    First off thank you to all that make this forum possible. I hope that I am in the right area. If I am not please forgive I will try to figure it out as time goes on.

    class Bicycle {
        int cadence = 0;
        int speed = 0;
        int gear = 1;
        void changeCadence(int newValue) {
             cadence = newValue;
        void changeGear(int newValue) {
             gear = newValue;
        void speedUp(int increment) {
             speed = speed + increment;   
        void applyBrakes(int decrement) {
             speed = speed - decrement;
        void printStates() {
             System.out.println("cadence:" +
                 cadence + " speed:" + 
                 speed + " gear:" + gear);
    When I try to run I receive the sentence in the title. bicyclejava.BicycleJava class wasn't found in Bicycle.java project. I am using NetBeans IDE 7.3. Any help with this would really be appreciated and Happy Mother's Day to all.

    Hi Onemoonrising, welcome to the forums!

    That class is not actually "runnable": for that there has to be a main() method. Moreover the class you posted is Bicycle whereas the compiler message talks about a bicyclejava.BicycleJava class. Are there any other classes involved in this project? On the left hand side of NetBeans there is a list which tells you which packages are in your project, and which classes are in those packages. It might help if you described the contents of that "Projects" panel.
