    Default someone can help me ?

    hey , hope u guys doing well . i just want to ask for some help . its not about solving my coding but about understanding in java . my teacher had give me an exercise and ask me to type it using jcreator . i figured it out and the process complete . but the problem is i dont fully understand about the question that i had been gave . can anyone help me explain the coding that i've attach here with adding some comment in the coding ?

    so this the first coding .

    import java.util.*; 
    class StackDemo {
    static void showpush(Stack st, int a) {
    st.push(new Integer(a));
    System.out.println("push(" + a + ")");
    System.out.println("Stack: " + st);
    static void showpop(Stack st) {
    System.out.print("pop -> ");
    Integer a = (Integer) st.pop();
    System.out.println("stack: " + st);
    public static void main(String args[]) {
    Stack st = new Stack();
    System.out.println("stack: " + st);
    showpush(st, 42);
    showpush(st, 66);
    showpush(st, 99);
    try {
    } catch (EmptyStackException e) {
    System.out.println("empty stack");

    and this is the second conding .

    import java.util.*;
    public class StackDemo1{
    	public static void main(String[] args) {
    		Stack stack=new Stack();
    		stack.push(new Integer(10));
    		System.out.println("The contents of Stack is " + stack);
    		System.out.println("The size of an Stack is " + stack.size());
    		System.out.println("The number poped out is " + stack.pop());
    		System.out.println("The number poped out is " + stack.pop());
    		System.out.println("The contents of stack is " + stack);
    		System.out.println("The size of an stack is " + stack.size());

    You might want to check out the link in my signature on asking smart questions, especially the bit about writing clearly. Many of our users do not speak English as a first language, and so it can be hard to understand incorrectly written posts.

    That being said, what question? What's your question? What happened when you stepped through this with a debugger?

    What does the program print out when it executes?
    The code is very straight forward. There are no loops or conditional statements. It starts in the main() method and goes sequentially thru the statements. Each statement does something.

    Please copy and paste here each statement that you don't understand what it is doing and post a question about your problem understanding.
    Before doing that be sure to read the API doc for that statement as that will be the first thing we'll ask you to do if your question doesn't show that you have read the API doc.
