New Java code isn't seen at run time.  Still see "old code"

I built a small swing program that displays a button and using an ActionEvent changes the button text from "click me" to "I've been clicked".   I then decided to delete *all* button code and associated ActionEvent and add a JTextField instead.  It complies fine, but when I run it, I still get the button and the ActionEvent behaviour.  I made sure I saved my edits and am at a loss why I still get the old code behaviour.

Probably 'cos you're running the old code ;-)

When i've had this before, i've put this as the first line of main:

System.out.println("This is the NEW code");

Here's the code.  I added the println and do see "This is the NEW code" in the command window, but still get the button instead of my textfield.  I'm using javac/java on the command line, no IDEs.

import javax.swing.*;
import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;

public class OpenGui4 {

  public static void main (String[] args) {
     SimpleGui1 gui = new SimpleGui1();
     System.out.println("This is the NEW code");

     public void go() {
     //create a frame
     JFrame frame = new JFrame();
     JTextField Tfield = new JTextField(20);
    //  Tfield.addActionListener(this);
     // when the window is closed, exit the program
     frame.getContentPane().add(BorderLayout.EAST, Tfield);
     //set the size, in pixels of the frame
     // make frame visible
    }  // end of go method

} //end of class

You're not running the go() of OpenGui4

>>SimpleGui1 gui = new SimpleGui1();

should be

OpenGui4  gui = new  OpenGui4();
