Java Java Basics Getting Started with Java Receiving Input

"Hello, my name is (name)treehouse:~/workspace$" shows up, and nothing else

When i run the java Introductions in the console, only the "Hello, my name is (name)treehouse:~/workspace$" shows up, and nothing else. Is my code wrong or something misspelled? I tried to save it but still does not 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 Seth %s\n", firstName);
        console.printf("%s is learning how to write Java\n", firstName);

I do not see any problem in your code. After saving you code, did you make sure to compile it using javac? Make sure you save your code and recompile it.
