Compile problem

I have just started learning java and I copyed this example from a book (Java: the Compete Reference) but I cannot get it to compile properly.

class CurrentThreadDemo
{
  public static void main(String args[])
  {
    Thread t = Thread.currentThread();

    System.out.println("Current thread: " + t);
    t.setName("My Thread");
    System.out.println("After name change: " + t);

    try
    {
      for (int n = 5; n > 0; n--)
      {              
      System.out.println(n);
         Thread.sleep(1000);
      }
    }
    catch (InteruptedException e)
    {
      System.out.println("Main thread interrupted");
    }
  }
}

Line 16 I get error Interception thread must be caught in the throws clause of this method.

& Line 19 InteruptedException not found.


Thanks for your help

hi damienm

check ur code
>>catch (InteruptedException e)
                     {
                       System.out.println("Main thread interrupted");
                     }

>>InteruptedException e
it should be
catch (InterruptedException e)
                     {
                       e.printStackTrace();
                     }

always use printStackTrace() method to get the stack trace where u have gone wrong
now it will work fine

Hi Rjackman

I figured out the answer when I was reading your answer even though your answer was not exactly the answer.

When reading your answer I noticed that I had spelt interrupted with only 1 r.

So I suppose you did give me the answer if not dirrectly.

Anyway Thanks
