Stuck in the first java program Posted: Aug 5, 2012 2:43 AM

i am a newbie in java programming. given suggestion by most user, i download a pdf file of Bruce Eckel's "Thinking in Java 4th Edition", but i stuck in the first program, and i tried to surf net to find solution to solve it, but no luck, i believe it is a small problem, hoping any expert can help me.

first, i am using netbean ide 7.1 with jdk1.7.0_02, according to url, i install the TIJ4 source code in the directory D:\data\project\java\TIJ4-code. i also change the environment CLASSPATH=.;C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\lib\ext\;D:\data\project\java\TIJ4-code;. on the other hand, i create a new project named, and the source code is listed as below :-

// start
package shortform;
// D:\data\project\java\TIJ4-code
import static net.mindview.util.Print.print;

public class Shortform {
public static void main(String[] args) {
print("This is a test");
// end

to run the program, i need to add a D:\data\project\java\TIJ4-code folder into shortform->project properties->libraries->Compile section, according to the example in the book, the sample use "import static net.mindview.util.Print.*;" statement, but the netbean compilier show a error on the editor, the error is "Import section does not correspond to the specified code style rules.", so i change to "import static net.mindview.util.Print.print;", then the error is gone. when i click the "test project (shortform)" (alt-F6), the error is show as below :-

// start -------------------------------------------------
