Hi made a new object with a constant value, tried to check the declared constant value, i got this error;

jshell> pd.MAX_PEZ;
| Error:
| incompatible types: int cannot be converted to Object
| pd.MAX_PEZ;
| ^--------^

My exmaple.java is:

public class Example {

  public static void main(String[] args) {
    // Your amazing code goes here...
    System.out.println("we are makeing a new Object");
    Object object2 = new Object("Sinan");
    System.out.printf("The Name attribute of new object has value %s %n", 

my Object.java is

class Object {
  public final int MAX_PEZ = 12;
  final private String Name;

  public Object(String Name) {
  this.Name = Name;

  public String getName() {
    return Name;

[MOD: edited code block - srh]

Does the error give you a line number and what class it is in?

I don't think you are allowed to create a class that is called "Object" because it is the superclass of all other classes in Java. Try changing the name of the class to something else (like "Obj" or something, literally anything else) and see if it works.
