I received these errors:

when I compiled the program.
Suggestions/questions:
* post in the beginner's forum next time
* what do you think "<identifier> expected" means?
* format your code to make it easier to follow. Start by reading Sun's coding conventions at http://java.sun.com/docs/codeconv/html/CodeConvTOC.doc.html. For example, the class names should be First and Second, not first and second.
* when posting code here, use the appropriate code tags
The fix to get the code to compile is very simple. Hint: the method signature is missing something. Good luck.

thanx for the response.
can't i specify the parameter's type alone, as a part of the signature. why shld i also give some identifier to it?
in C or C++, the parameter's type in the declaration is suufice but why it is not in java?

Good question. It helps to document the method if you give descriptive variable names in the abstract class. E.g. compare these two declarations:
