Cannot understanding why my test file does not compile?

/*This programme tests the DataLog class*/

public class DataLogTestProg
{
      public static void main(String [] args)
      {
            DataLog d1, d2;//declare two DataLog objects
            d1 = new DataLog();//create the first DataLog instance
            d2 = new DataLog();//create the second DataLog instance

            System.out.println("d1:" + d1.toString());
            System.out.println("d2:" + d2.toString());

            d1.setData(4);//send value 4 to ojbect 1
            d2.setData(6);//send value 6 to ojbect 2
      }
}

public class DataLog
{
      private int x;//the current data value
      private int lastx;//the previous data value

      //Constructors

      /*Default constructor, sets data to zero*/

      public DataLog()
      {
            x = 0;
            lastx = 0;
      }

      /*Sets data to initialValue.  This is also the previous value*/

      public DataLog(int initialValue)
      {
            x = initialValue;
            lastx = initialValue;
      }

      //Methods

      /*Sets data to dataValue*/

      public void setData(int dataValue)
      {
            lastx = x;
            x = dataValue;
      }

      /*Returns the current data value*/

      public int getData()
      {
            return x;
      }

      /*Restores the previous value of the data value*/

      public void undo()
      {
            x = lastx;
      }

      /*Returns a text representation of the current and last value of the data value*/

      public String toString()
      {
            return "new value" + x + "last value" + lastx;
      }
}

What error message are you getting?

P.S. I assume those two classes are in separate files with the correct names?

Error message reads:-

DataLogTestProg.java:8:cannot resolve symbol
symbol:class DataLog
location:class DataLogTestProg

DataLog d1, d2;//
             ^

etc

If they're in one file, remove second 'public' and compile the one with main method. The file should be DataLogTestProg.java

Or, simply put the two files in the same directory (if possible). It should run fine then. You may also have to compile DataLog first as some compilers will not look for and compile necessary class files for you.

So,

1. Remove second 'public' from 'public class ...'
2. Save as DataLogTestProg.java
3. Compile:

javac DataLogTestProg.java
