adding instantiations to an array

Posted by Keith Bell on February 13, 2002 at 6:20 PM

Hello everyone. Advice on this would be gratefully helpful

I have created a class called Paper (that includes various parameters such as author, title, date, etc)

This class consists of multiple set and get methods and has a constructor to intialise the parameters at the beginning. In the main method at the end I have created an instantiation of the Paper class and wish to add this to an array of Paper objects called Paperlist declared in another class.

In my paperlist array I have created and declared the array and put in a method to add a Paper object to the array as follows :

public void addPaper(Paper aPaper)
aPaperList [theNextFreeLocation] = aPaper;
theNextFreeLocation ++;

when i call the method to add the instantiation at the end of my my main method with the command


I get a compiler error called variable aPaperList cannot resolve symbol. Any ideas?
