    Default Get method

    Hello, I'm taking a Java class, and am having trouble getting my get method to work in this simple program converting from farenheit to celsius...I'd rather not have the code written for me, just point to the problem please. It is not liking my Get line...
    [code]import javax.swing.*;

    public class Temperature {

    private String sUserTemperature;
    private double iTemp;
    double iConverted = (5/9) * (iTemp - 32);
    double Celsius;
    //double dCelsius = Celsius;

    void SetTemperatureF()
    sUserTemperature = JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Enter farenheit temperature to convert");
    iTemp = Double.parseDouble(sUserTemperature);
    JOptionPane.showMessageDialog( null, "You entered " + iTemp);

    double GetTemperatureF(double iConverted)
    JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, iTemp + " equals " + iConverted + " in Celsius." );
    Celsius = iConverted;
    return Celsius;

    My MAIN:
    public class Main {

    * @param args the command line arguments
    public static void main(String[] args) {

    Temperature oTemp;
    oTemp = new Temperature();

    having trouble getting my get method to work
    What does that mean?
    Compiler error? Execution error? Wrong output?
    When you get errors, copy and paste the FULL TEXT here.

    Ok Norm I'llbe sure to do that...I have it now - I hadn't instantiated iConverted in my Main but was using it in my GetTemperatureF inside my Temperature class.
    I hope I said that right.
    Thanks though!
