<identifier> expected, when using radio buttons

Code:

JRadioButton incomingRadio = new JRadioButton("Accept Conversation");
JRadioButton outgoingRadio = new JRadioButton("Start Conversation");
ButtonGroup connectionButtonGroup = new ButtonGroup();
connectionButtonGroup.add(incomingRadio);
connectionButtonGroup.add(outgoingRadio);

When compileing the last two lines give a '<identifier> expected' error. Yet the code seems to be correct, if I comment out those lines it compiles.

It's probably the context of those lines that is incorrect, not the lines themselves

In the constructor for example:

JRadioButton incomingRadio = new JRadioButton("Accept Conversation");
JRadioButton outgoingRadio = new JRadioButton("Start Conversation");
ButtonGroup connectionButtonGroup = new ButtonGroup();

public <yourclassname>()
{
    connectionButtonGroup.add(incomingRadio);
    connectionButtonGroup.add(outgoingRadio);
}

Because you cannot call a method within class member declaration.
