Now continually prompt the user in a do while loop. The loop should continue running as long as the response is No.

Now continually prompt the user in a do while loop. The loop should continue running as long as the response is No. Don't forget to declare response outside of the do while loop.

i have no idea what i am doing wrong. the syntax errors are not helping. thx

Example.java
// I have initialized a java.io.Console for you. It is in a variable named console.
String response = console.readLine(" Do you understand do while loops?");
boolean response;
do {
  response = console.readLine(" Do you understand do while loops?");

  } while (response != "yes");

//this should work. you do not need a Boolean named response 
// I have initialized a java.io.Console for you. It is in a variable named console.
String response ;
do {
  response = console.readLine(" Do you understand do while loops?");

  } while (response = "no");
