This is the error I get:

./com/example/BlogPost.java:3: error: '{' expected

com/example/BlogPost.java
package com.example;

public class BlogPost() {
}
Display.java
import com.example.BlogPost;

public class Display {
  public static void main(String[] args) {
    // Your code here...
    BlogPost blogpost = new BlogPost();
    System.out.printf("This is a blog post: %s", blogpost);
  }
}

Shaikat, when you create a class you don't use (). Parentheses follow method names not class names.

package com.example;

public class BlogPost {
}

The surprising thing is that the editor accepted it for Task 2, which it shouldn't have, and then it rejected it later.

I see. Never noticed that difference.

Thank you so much for the prompt response.
