    Java Rookie looking for help compiling

    Can anyone tell me why this won't compile. Error " reached end of file while parsing" which probably means that the brackets are not paired. I got to the point where I was sticking brackets everywhere just to see if it would work. Need help. I have attached the java file.

    Re: Java Rookie looking for help compiling

    Please post the code in [Code ] [/code ] tags.

    (format them without spaces, i.e.)

    Code:
    public class SomeClass {
    
    }
    Not many people will bother extracting your application to look at the syntax.

    Sorry, I don't know what "Put your code inside

    tags (where the ellipsis is)" means.

    Re: Java Rookie looking for help compiling

    If you indent your code with a consistent style it will make it a lot easier to see where the problem is.

    Look at each of the if statements, while statements etc and make sure each code block associated with the statement has exactly one opening and one closing bracket. Then do the same for each method and finally the class, deleting spurious brackets/adding missing brackets as you go.

    Re: Java Rookie looking for help compiling

    figured your error with the JOptionPane

    you have

    Code:
    income = JOptionPane.showInputDialog(null, "Enter your income for the year.");
    			income = Double.parseDouble(inputIncome);
    and I blieve you want

    Code:
    inputIncome = JOptionPane.showInputDialog(null, "Enter your income for the year.");
    			income = Double.parseDouble(inputIncome);
    that seemed to fix that

    Re: Java Rookie looking for help compiling

    Thanks, that was an error in the code. I still get a "PrepareTax.java:151: reached end of file while parsing" error though. I'm sure that it has something to do with the brackets.

    Re: Java Rookie looking for help compiling

    Sorry I didn't read the post prior. I think that did fix the bracket issue and the problem in the JOption pane. Now it cannot find symbol class TaxReturn, so almost there.
    Thanks a lot, I was pretty frustrated.

    Your going to have to make a class TaxReturn inorder to get rid of that cannot find symbol class TaxReturn unless you already have it in another file.

    Re: Java Rookie looking for help compiling

    I am still struggling with it, especially the syntax with having to do all the data validation that is required. There is a lot of validation to do for a intro course. We are using Java Programming 4th edition by Joyce Farrell. I assume you are too. I find that the exercises are not well supported by the chapters. All the code in the book does one thing, and then the exercise asks you to do multiple things without an example to go by.
    I have learned more off the internet than in the course.
    How are you doing?
