Java Java Basics Getting Started with Java IO

Hi, not sure what I'm doing wrong here.

As much help as possilbe needed. I'm new and finding the instruction extremely difficult to follow.

// I have imported java.io.Console for you.  It is a variable called console.
String firstName = console.readLine("What is your name?  ");
String lastName = console.readline("What is your name?  ");

Change your second line to console.readline to console.readLine. This should fix the problem.

Hi Ed, Don't be too discouraged, learning this is like learning a new language. In this case its a rather silly language where capitalization matters. The "readLine" method needs to have an uppercase L, which you missed in your second line of code. Take care of that, and keep going!

Hi. Thanks for the help. Was quite overwhelming to start the course but getting the hang of it now.
