When you were naming your Treet's constructor's variables "description" and "creationDate" it looks as if you started each one of those with a capital letter. All variables should start with a lowercase letter for the first word, and all words that come after will start with a capital. This is called camel casing.

Solution: rename your "Decription" and "CreationDate" variables in the Treet class in the public Treet(String Description, Date CreationDate) constructor to "description" and "creationDate". Happy coding, Brendon! :D

Thanks dude

Im having the same problem but, my description and creation date are right. Any hints?
