My code works, but when I add it into the exercise it doesn't work.

import java.io.Console;

public class Introductions {

public static void main(String[] args) {
    Console console = System.console();
    // Welcome to the Introductions program!  Your code goes below here
    String firstName = console.readLine("What is your name?  ");      
    console.printf("Hello my name is %s\n", firstName);
    console.printf("%s is learning to write java\n", firstName);

} }

IO.java
        String firstName = console.readLine("What is your name?  ");      
        console.printf("Hello my name is %s\n", firstName);
        console.printf("%s is learning to write java\n", firstName);
