Java Java Objects (Retired) Delivering the MVP Wrapping up

Help with output code on last task of Java Objects Course task 4

Here is my output to the console for this program

Starting forum example... New post from Kyler Callaway about Finishing OOP and It feels Great!

I don't understand why I am not getting this question right

The expression is pulling the arguments in As Required

Starting forum example... New post from Kyler Callaway about Finishing OOP and It feels Great!

Object author = "Kyler", "Callaway"; String title = "Finishing OOP"; String description"It feels great";

to the best of my knowledge all arguments are being pulled in from other variable references as required. Please help any and all assistance would be appreciated.

ForumPost.java
public class ForumPost {
  private User mAuthor;
  private String mTitle;
  private String mDescription;
  public ForumPost(User author, String title, String description){
    mAuthor = author;
    mTitle = title;
    title = " ";
    mDescription = description;
    description = " "; 
  }  

  public User getAuthor() {
    return mAuthor;
  }

  public String getTitle() {
    return mTitle;
  }

  // TODO: We need to expose the description
  public String getDescription(){
    return mDescription;
  }
}
User.java
public class User {
    private String mFirstName;
  private String mLastName;

  public User(String firstName, String lastName) {
    // TODO:  Set the private fields here
    mFirstName =firstName;
    mLastName = lastName;
  }
  public String getFirstName(){
    return mFirstName;
  }
  public String getLastName(){
    return mLastName;
  }
}
Forum.java
public class Forum {
  private String mTopic;

  public Forum(String topic){
   mTopic = topic; 
  }

  public String getTopic() {
      return mTopic;
  }

  public void addPost(ForumPost post) {
      // When all is ready uncomment this...
      System.out.printf("New post from %s %s about %s \n and %s",
                         post.getAuthor().getFirstName(),
                         post.getAuthor().getLastName(),
                         post.getTitle(),
                         post.getDescription());


  }
}
Example.java
public class Example {

  public static void main(String[] args) {
    System.out.println("Starting forum example...");
    if (args.length < 2) {
       System.out.println("first and last name are required. eg:  java Example Craig Dennis");
    }
   Forum forum = new Forum("Java");
    // Take the first two elements passed args
     User author = new User("Kyler", "Callaway");
    // Add the author, title and description
     ForumPost post = new ForumPost(author,"Finishing OOP","It feels Great!" );
    forum.addPost(post);
  }
}

Hey When they ask you to -->Take the first two elements passed args<--- its mean to passed to the User constructor the args[0] and the args[1] passed in the console. So this-->java Example Craig Dennis<--- means::::> java nameOfTheClass args[0] args[1] ..... its an array of Strings.

So the answer is: User author = new User(args[0], args[1]);

Keep on coding!!! Cya.
