I recently installed java on my windows system, (I'm home from school for a few weeks) and I am having trouble compiling any programs that use AWT stuff. Here is my program:

----begin code----

----end code----

When I attempt to compile it, I get the following errors:

---begin errors----

Animate.java:19: incompatible types

g=f.getGraphics();

---end errors----

could someone please enlighten me to what I'm doing wrong?

thanks in advance,

frame f = newFrame("Example 1");



Try:
Frame f = new Frame("Example 1");

OK, I am confused. I took this code "as is" and it compiled and ran on my
system.

It also ran on my system.

My guess is that Microsoft's java is superceding Sun's java.

Try editing your PATH environment variable and put
%JAVA_HOME%\bin;%JAVA_HOME%\jre\bin;
at the front of your PATH. I may be somewhere towards the end, and it may look slightly different --
%JAVA_HOME% is where your j2sdk lives.
e.g. C:\j2sdk1.4.2_06

Okay, I fixed this, but it doesn't really make sense.

I edited my PATH, and I also changed the top of the program from:

import java.awt.*;

--to--->

import java.awt.Graphics;
import java.awt.Color;
import java.awt.Frame;

and it now compiles and runs correctly. The only problem is, I don't know why it was being stupid in the first place

And I'm very curious about the error message you posted quoting the statement:

frame f = newFrame("Example 1");

which doesn't appear in the source code you posted.

Yeah, I don't understand that either.

I guess you could change the code back to using java.awt.* to see if it makes a difference ...

I tried compiling with "java.awt.*;". It gave the same errors as the initial ones.
