I have building this program that works with exception handlers, while I believe I have it down pretty good, I am getting one type of error that I am not sure about.




.\Date.java:63: ';' expected
System.out.print('please enter a valid input: ');
^
.\Date.java:63: unclosed character literal
System.out.print('please enter a valid input: ');
^
.\Date.java:63: cannot find symbol
symbol : class enter
location: class Date
System.out.print('please enter a valid input: ');
^
.\Date.java:63: cannot find symbol
symbol : class valid
location: class Date
System.out.print('please enter a valid input: ');
^



I changed the quotes from single to double to help signify a string to be printed but the JVM seems to still look at the string as a set of class identifiers or other weird types needed.

Here is my code:



Thanks for the help

Are you compiling the class that you saved ? Try giving it another name to make sure you're not compiling a class existing somewhere else in the classpath.

well this excpetion is being handled in the driven class Date.

here is the entire file:



here is my driver class:


I am not really sure what you mean by "class that I saved" Do you mean the name of file in regards to the name of the class?

Thanks a lot

I see them too

Ben, the compiler tells you that the error occurs at Line 63 of your java file. Make sure that you are looking at the right place.
