Hi,
When the Java interpreter executes an application it starts by calling the class's main method. The main method then calls all the other methods required to run your application. So when you compile this, compiler doesn't know what 'args' that you have mentioned as an argument to main method.

Use code tag for code.

More than that, in Java, you must declare every method parameter types next to the variable name, not outside the method.

and this has nothing to do with main() specifically. you also would not be allowed to do this:
