Why is the Java compiler encountering parsing errors?

I am just starting on Java Basics and when I run the compiler, I am receiving an error message:

treehouse:~/workspace$ javac Introductions.java
Picked up JAVA_TOOL_OPTIONS: -Xmx128m
Picked up _JAVA_OPTIONS: -Xmx128m
Introductions.java:10: error: reached end of file while parsin
g
}

Is this an error with the workspace or with my code?

Compilers are picky things when it comes to the grammar rules of their language. One of those rules is that every time you have an opening curly-brace, {, it must have a corresponding } to close it. You are probably missing one at the end of your code.
