    Smile New to Java....still learning...Help Required

    Hi i'm trying to grasp Java via reading tutorials..

    I'm trying to setup a small quiz but getting nowhere..

    My code is below
    ================================================== =======
    package footballquiz;

    import java.applet.*;
    import java.awt.*;
    import javax.swing.*;

    public class Main {
    private static void createAndShowGUI() {
    //Create window
    JFrame frame = new JFrame("main");
    frame.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOS E);

    JLabel emptyLabel = new JLabel("main");
    emptyLabel.setPreferredSize(new Dimension(175, 100));
    frame.getContentPane().add(emptyLabel, BorderLayout.CENTER);

    //Display Window
    //Display the window.
    javax.swing.SwingUtilities.invokeLater(new Runnable() {
    public void run() {

    when running i get the following error..

    "Footballquiz.Main class wasn't found in FootballQuiz project"

    Can anyone shed light on this please.... and point me in the right direction...

    when you start a java program the jvm is looking for a method main with exactly this signature

    public static void main(String[] args)

    this is the entry-point of your program. if the jvm doesn't found this default entry-point an error is thrown and the execution is aborted.
