Java Java Basics Getting Started with Java Introduction to Your Tools

I did the exact same thing, but it keeps saying error.

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
        console.printf("Hello, my name is Viola");

This is my code and I don't know where has gone wrong, could you please help me out? Thank you guys!

I am also getting a bash error when trying to run the program in the console. To explain further, I at first ran Introductions with the .java at the end, which gave the bash error, but now it won't stop giving the bash error when I input the run correctly, java Introductions. I still get the bash error....and I don't even know what bash means!

Hi there.

You posted code is correct, so I'm not sure as to why you are receiving an error. :confused:

If you are working in Workspaces, it may have just been a glitch. (There is currently an ongoing issue regarding the functionality of Workspaces, that should soon be resolved.)

I guess, we should check the obvious thought:

  1. After saving your work (make sure the red dot is not visible in the tab of the workspace... this means the changes have not been saved).

  2. Run javac Introductions.java

  3. Run java Introductions

If this does not solve the error, you may need to send an email to the Treehouse Support Team

I hope everything works out. :) :dizzy:

Make sure your class name which is "Introductions" in your case is same as your file name in which you are writing your code.
