    Use a few more full stops and capital letters to avoid run-on sentences like this; the compiler should also give a complete error message; what is it and what does the code that caused that message look like?

    kind regards,

    Silly NetBeans ... you've put that class in the java21 package but I don't see a package statement at the start of your source (i.e. add a line 'package java21;' at the start of your source code).

    Yep, it's that easy; you should check how NetBeans can display a complete error message; it gives you all the information you need ..
