Getting error when trying to compile a very simple program!

Posted by DINH NGUYEN on July 27, 2000 at 8:29 PM

I keep getting the errors below when I am trying to compile the program from "Thinking in Java" by BruceEckel on pages 97 and 98.
I am using JDK1.2 and TextPad to compile java.
Would you please let me know what's going on?

Thank you so much for your help.

//Assignment with objects is a bit tricky
//package c03;

class Number {
{ int i;

public class Assignment
{ public static void main(String[] args)
Number n1 = new Number();
Number n2 = new Number();
n1.i = 9;
n2.i = 47;
System.out.println("1: n1.i: " + n1.i + ", n2.i: " + n2.i);
System.out.println("2: n1.i: " + n1.i + ", n2.i: " + n2.i);
System.out.println("3: n1.i: " + n1.i + ", n2.i: " + n2.i);
C:\jdk1.2\bin\ Method void main(String[]) can't be static in inner class Number. Assignment. Only members of interfaces and top-level classes can be static.
{ public static void main(String[] args)
C:\jdk1.2\bin\ '}' expected.
