Hi there! To begin with, the first couple of lines that you've posted are simply informational messages related to memory options in the JVM. These do not affect your code.

But then you posted this:

Error: Could not find or load main class introductions

This suggests to me that the command issued was incorrect as the class name should be "Introductions" and not "introductions". Remember, everything in Java is case-sensitive.

I suggest that you try the command again paying careful attention to the capitalization. If it still doesn't work, look at the upper right-hand side of your workspace. You should see a camera icon. This will allow you to create a "snapshot" of your workspace which you can then link to us here. We will then be able to fork your workspace and take a look around and help you troubleshoot this.

I look forward to your response! :sparkles:
