    Default problem with code

    import java.util.*;
     * Write a description of class StockControl here.
     * @author (your name) 
     * @version (a version number or a date)
    public class StockControl
    private ArrayList<Product> stockList = new ArrayList<Product>();
    private ArrayList<Item> sales = new ArrayList<Item>();
    public void addProductToStockList(String name, int stockLevel,
     int reorderLevel, int orderLevel){
         stockList.add(new Product(String name,int stockLevel,int reorderLevel,int orderLevel));
         * Adds the item
        public void addSale(String name, int quantity)
            sales.add(new Item(name, quantity));
         * Find a product.
        private Product findProduct(String name)
            for (Product product: stockList)
            if (product.getName().equals(name))
            return product;
            return null;
         * DO the order
    public void orderProducts(){
    for (Items item: sales){
    Product product = findProduct(item.getName());
    if (product == null){
    System.out.println("Item" + item.getName() + "not recognised. Inform IT support.");
    product.setStockLevel(product.getStockLevel() - item.getQuantity());
    String orders = "";
    for (Product product: stockList){
    if (product.getStockLevel() <= product.getReorderLevel())
    orders = orders + product.getName() + " " + (product.getOrderLevel() - product.getStockLevel()) + "\n";

    The problem is appearing here:
     stockList.add(new Product(String name,int stockLevel,int reorderLevel,int orderLevel));
