An error like "unresolved compilation problem" probably means that you have some old *.class files somewhere and that the compiler gets confused. Delete all your *.class files and re-compile everything again.

What is wrong: Look at lines 2 and 5. What do you think could be wrong there?

Yes. Overriding can only be done by subclasses.

You are doing overloading not overriding.

You have two doit() methods - the same name, the same arguments. When you call doit() (without arguments) on an A object, how is Java supposed to know which of the two to call?
