Trouble creating treets.ser file

I'm using Notepad++ with Windows PowerShell to follow the exercises in Data Structures. I'm having trouble finding the "treets.ser" file after compiling Treets.save(treets), and I'm not getting any compiling errors.

Do I need to use an IDE to create and use serialized files? I want to believe it's possible to create serialized files using text-editors and PowerShell, but if not then I'm open to other suggestions. Thanks!

I am having the same issue, but inside the teamtreehouse workspace... did you try yours first in the workspace?

Could be a number of things, but to help you figure it out. You will have to post some extra information such as:

  • What commands you are calling to compile/run your Java code. (including what folder you are in, hopefully the project folder).
  • If its not related to the commands you are calling, then we will have to see some code snippets or if you have this in Workspaces you can "Share" your workspace.
