Android Build an Interactive Story App (Retired) The Model-View-Controller Pattern Adding a Custom Constructor

invalid method declaration

I cannot get to get this to work

Spaceship.java
public class Spaceship {
    public String mType;

    public Constructor(){
      mType = "SHUTTLE";
    }

    public String getType() {
      return mType;
    }

    public void setType(String type) {
      mType = type;
    }
}

Ok I got it.

When defining a default constructor, it should have the same name as its class; here "Spaceship". The correct code is

public class Spaceship { public String mType;

public Spaceship(){
  mType = "SHUTTLE";
}

public String getType() {
  return mType;
}

public void setType(String type) {
  mType = type;
}

}

public class Spaceship {
    public String mType;

   //task 1 constructor 
  public Spaceship(){
   mType = "SHUTTLE"; 
  }

//task 2 constructor
  public Spaceship(String spaceship){
    mType = spaceship;
  }

    public String getType() {
      return mType;
    }

    public void setType(String type) {
      mType = type;
    }
}

Thanks anil, I answered to myself at the same time ;)
