how would i go about doing that??? I understand the term, just am foggy... been doing his project for 6 hours straight now.
Note that accessing other classes purely via static methods (as the code does now) is not good object oriented design. you should consider instantiating objects in the "Main" class, and then calling methods on those objects.

p is in database
I also suspect that your "p" variable is supposed to be a Person object. You don't have it declared in the main method.
Never mind about posting your Database and Person classes. I see you did that in another thread.
In the other thread you had a method "handleAddPerson" that's not in this listing. That was almost where you want to be. You just didn't add the Person object to the Database object. In this thread you don't have that method, but you're trying to add "p" to the database but it isn't declared as a Person object, nor do you get any data for it.
