    Default Java Introducing an object

    Hello, I am new to java oop. The following is my first program and can any one help me what
    I am missing that I couldn't get the task right? Thank you in advance!
    Task:The main method of the class Things below creates an object called printer deriving from the class PrintingClass and uses that object to print text. Your task is to write the PrintingClass class.

    Program to complete:
    Java Code:
    mport java.util.Scanner;
    public class Things {
        public static void main(String args[]) {
            String characterString;
            Scanner reader =  new Scanner(;        
            PrintingClass printer = new PrintingClass();
            System.out.print("Type in the character string for printing: ");
            characterString = reader.nextLine();
    //  Write the missing class here
    //  Class is written in the text box below.
    Note: In this exercise the solution is part of a conversion unit where many classes have been declared. Because of this the classes are not declared as public using the public attribute.
    Example output

    Type in the character string for printing: John Doe
    John Doe
    My Class:

    Java Code:
    class PrintingClass {
      public void print(){

    Your print method does not have parameters. But you want to pass an Argument to it....

    On top of that the method is called print(), yet the Things class is calling a method name Print(). Java is case sensitive.
