    Default simple exercise for class, help please?

    Hello,
    I am new to programming and have had only one session of my first class. My exercise is to write a class using jgrasp to display my name.

    I have this:

    public class Name
    {
    public static void main (String [] args)
    {
    System.out.println.("Dean");
    }

    }

    Is this correct? I can't get jgrasp to display it without it saying there are errors.

    Thank you tremendously for your help

    Java Code:
    System.out.println.("Dean");
    should be
    Java Code:
    System.out.println("Dean");

    A directory where you want to be saving your java projects in.

    Thank you very much, I still can't seem to get it to function properly, I'm getting this message in the bottom window....

    I apologize for the lack of knowledge here, it's just a little confusing yet

    You'll have to compile/build the file first.

    What output did you get from the compilation? The class file will not be created if the program still has compilation errors.
