private static Map<String, DvdDatabase> reservations

He says that it is not static. Yet it is? Is it meant to be static or not? I would guess static is what we are going for?

I believe it's meant not to be static, like said in the comment.

in DvdDatabase there is following code:


Here it's static, so just one instance of ReservationsManager and thus also from the reservations-map. so no static is needed in front of the reservations-map.
 
It's just a flesh wound! Or a tiny ad:
