Greetings,

I'm getting this error C:\Users\Omar\Desktop>javac Dog.java
Dog.java:17: '(' or '[' expected
myDogs[2]=new dog1;
^
1 error



What I'm doing wrong?

Look at line 17. The syntax for creating a new Dog object is wrong there. Note that in line 15 and 16 you're doing it correctly. Why did you suddenly do it differently in line 17?

In other languages you may do a copy of an already existing object by using something like the syntax you have on line 17.

In this case, I think that you wanted to put the dog1 into the last position of the array and you should just assign it (remove the new keyword).
