The naming convention is 'setVariableName' (without the 'm' prefix).

What's the problem please?

public class Spaceship{ public String mType;

public String getType(){ return mType; } public void SetType(String type){ mType = type; } }

You have the S in SetType capitalized.

Try setType?

It should be "setType" with a lowercase s. Only class (or constant, or interface) names start with a capital letter.

Bummer! The naming convention is 'getVariableName' (without the 'm' prefix).
What's the problem please? public class Movie {
private String mTitle; private int mYearReleased;

public String gettitle() { return mTitle; }

public void settitle(String title) {
    mTitle = title;
}  

public int getyearreleased() { return mYearReleased; }

public void settemperature(int yearreleased) {
    mYearReleased = yearreleased;
} 

}

It needs to be camel-cased, not all lowercase. The method names are just the field name with the 'm' replaced with 'get' or 'set' with the casing left as is. (ex. for mYearReleased, get methods are named getYearReleased and setYearReleased
