I haven't used Scanner for a while now, but as far as I remember, it is not thread safe. Is it good to use it as a class constant ?

I would strongly suggest not starting with GUI code if you are learning java. If you are unclear about compilation issues, maybe you can start with small basic CUI programs instead.

I am glad that you realized that.

Now let's look at your program as a standalone code ...

As you rightly stated, your code works fine for 'Barry' and does not quit for 'Kevin'. Isn't that pointing to the direction that you are doing something special for 'Kevin' that's missing for 'Barry' ?

Let me point out the lines of code:

Both if and else conditions are calling a method: println() and getName() ... Can you spot the difference ?

What do you know now that you wish you had known when you were starting out?

I prefer a programmer who loves programming vs one who looks at it as a mere task

India has the second largest number of languages (780) in the world
North Indians and South Indians have a completely different and distinguishable accents due to the variety of languages spoken.

I see a lot of hard coding in the above program. If you want to add another command it will be a code change. Is it possible for you to use a json config file :

In this way, if you want to add more commands, you simply have to add more configs to your json file without doing any code changes.
The only issue is that java does not have a json parser internally, so, you'll have to use a third party jar..
Alternatively, you can store the above changes in xml. There are internal libraries in java with xml support.
