Java Exercise-Cant find class

I am doing this exercise in Java and when I try to run it, it says no Class found and I have 2 errors.   Any help would greatly be appreciated.

package loadeddie;
import java.util.Random;

public class LoadedDie{

   public LoadedDie(int pctChance)
{    
        chanceForSix = pctChance;
        Random generator = new Random();
}  
     public int rollDie()
     {        
         int chanceForOthers;
         int randNum;
         
         chanceForOthers = (100 - chanceForSix)/5;
         randNum = generator.nextInt(100);
       
        If (randNum < chanceForSix){
             
           return 6;}
        else {
           
           
            return(randNum - chanceForSix)/ chanceForOthers;}
       
     }
   
        private int chanceForSix;
        private Random generator;
}

Yes, you now have a Player object.

Now that player object needs to know about your Die object to roll it.  Instead of instantiating "Random myDie = new Random();" try instantiating your class LoadedDie then call your roll method.

Hopefully that helps.

And hopefully being clear enough.

How are you trying to run this?  There is no static main method, so can't execute directly.  You will have to instantiate from another object or create a main method.

Hope that helps, please post back if you need more assistance after giving that a try.

Regards,
Kevin

Well, java is case sensitive, so If is not equivalent to if.  
Change this: If (randNum < chanceForSix)
To this: if (randNum < chanceForSix)

That fix the compile errors
init:
deps-jar:
Compiling 1 source file to C:\Documents and Settings\Angela\My Documents\NetBeansProjects\LoadedDie\build\classes
compile-single:
BUILD SUCCESSFUL (total time: 0 seconds)

Can you explain what "<No main classes found>" means?

See my first comment as I thought that was were you were at with errors. :) As the error suggests you don't have a main method.

If you need more / deeper explaination you can refer to http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/ or post back after trying to implement based on my feedback.

I found this piece of code, Can I change this to fit my code?


package loadeddie;
import java.util.Random;

public class LoadedDieTester {
public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        Random myDie = new Random ();
System.out.println("The Result of the toss is " + (myDie.nextInt(6)+1));

    }
}

Think of this in object oriented terms.  You have created a dice object that is now sitting on the table.  It will never roll unless you have a Player object or something that rolls it.
