I'm trying to figure out the answer this question. I tried googling and looking through my PDF text book none of which is able to tell me the value when "self" is used. I understand the basics, ex is a object of method example and 7 is placed in x making val=7.

This sounds like PHP to me - regular Java does not have a "self" keyword. So I'm moving this post to that forum.

If I'm wrong, let me know, and I'll move it to somewhere more appropriate.

[Edit] Oops, might have jumped the gun.
@Josh: Let me know if this was intended to be a Java question or whether you are, in fact, writing PHP code. If the first, I'll move it back.

Welcome to JavaRanch. Given that the code doesn't compile, the question is moot My guess is that the author of this code meant to use this, not self (which doesn't exist in Java): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/This_%28computer_programming%29#Java

Updating this. You guys were right. I basically wrote in the question that there is no self in java and explained the differences between self and this. Teacher gave me full credit for doing the research. Thanks for your help!
