Forum.java
public class Forum {
  private String topic;

  // TODO: add a constructor that accepts a topic and sets the private field topic
  public Forum(String topic){
  this.topic = topic;
  }

  public String getTopic() {
    return topic;
  }



  public void addPost(ForumPost post) {
    System.out.printf("A new post in %s topic from %s %s about %s is available",
            topic,
            post.getAuthor().getFirstName(),
            post.getAuthor().getLastName(),
            post.getTitle()
    );
  }

User.java
public class User {
  // TODO: add private fields for firstName and lastName
  private String firstName;
  private String lastName;

  public User(String firstName, String lastName) {
    // TODO: set and add the private fields
this.firstName = firstName;
    this.lastName = lastName;
  }

  // TODO: add getters for firstName and lastName
  public String getFirstName(){
  return firstName;
  }

   public String getLastName(){
  return lastName;
  }

ForumPost.java
public class ForumPost {

    this.title =title;
    this.description = description;

  }

  public User getAuthor() {
    return author;
  }

  public String getTitle() {
    return title;
  }

  public String getDescription() {
    return description;
  }
}
Main.java
public class Main {

  public static void main(String[] args) {
    System.out.println("Beginning forum example");
    if (args.length < 2) {
      System.out.println("Usage: java Main <first name> <last name>");
      System.err.println("<first name> and <last name> are required");
      System.exit(1);
    }

    Forum forum = new Forum("Java");
    // TODO: pass in the first name and last name that are in the args parameter
    User author = new User("firstName", "lastName");
    // TODO: initialize the forum post with the user created above and a title and description of your choice
    ForumPost post = new ForumPost(author, "inferno", "thriller");
    forum.addPost(post);


  }

I believe it wants you to use args[0] for the first name and args[1] for the last name. What this does is it allows you to enter in the names from the console when you run the program. Instead of User author = new User("firstName", "lastName"); Try: User author = new User(args[0], args[1]);

Thank you Jeremy.

You're welcome :)
