There are 5 append methods in StringBuilder with one parameter that is a reference. The compiler doesn't know which of these you want to invoke when passing null as this could be any of them.
You can help the compiler by adding a type information to the call:
You are right. It looks like the body of takesAnArray is missing.

The code from the book:
Change the condition in the for loop to i < rund.

The standard idiom to iterate n times is
for (int i = 0; i < n; i++) {  }

I strongly encourage you to change your toString() method so it doesn't collect user input.

Also, can you show your current code?

In your toString() method you are calling name(), time(), bags() and pots() again which results in new input being collected.

I had the same issue. I ended up contacting Oracle Certification Program Team and they resolved the issue.

My suggestion is that there are zero lines <searchTag> in the file. You are using equals so any single white space will cause your filter condition to return false.

Note that you don't have to read the whole file to the list and then create a stream from the list.
You may create a list from the file directly by using Files.lines().

If thread a calls b.join() and thread b calls a.join() they will both wait for each other.

There is even simpler case. Try calling Thread.currentThread().join() and see what happens.

How are you compiling the classes (what command)? How are you running them? What is the directory you compile/run them from? (type cd in the console).

Line 3 prints true because runtimeException is an instance of class Exception.....

And then I wrote (...) or a subclass of Exception.

You wrote:This is technically correct (the best kind of correct ).

But, your confusion with the super-/subclass comes from the fact that you wrote the relation between classes inversely.
Write this as below and everything should be clear:

I am not. When I wrote  runtimeException is an instance of class Exception what I meant was an object referenced by the variable named runtimeException is an instance of class Exception.
