Java Java Basics Using your New Tools Multiple Strings

Every time i use a new workspace and try to run the program always outputs: Picked up JAVA_TOOL_OPTIONS: -Xmx128m

as well as this: Picked up _JAVA_OPTIONS: -Xmx128m

now I haven't even done anything to the file yet and my import statement seems to be correct: import java.io.Console; any ideas?

Hi Megan,

If you have a look at the Teacher's Notes for the First Video of the Course this is explained. It is not an error and just has to do with Memory Allocation for the Java environment in Treehouse's Workspaces.
If your code is supposed to output something and isn't, then the error is in your code. If your code is not supposed to output anything, then all is fine, as those line are normal and expected.
