I am attempting to learn Java for a hobby (haven't written code in 15 years) I am using netbeans and found a good document on oracle.com to help get started however either I am missing the obvious or there is a problem with this site. I'm hoping someone can tell me how to get this to work.
The article is http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/netbeans-part1-142734.html#figure7
. If you scroll down a bit it tells you to name the variable jlabel6, jlable7 and jlabel8 to ******
When I try that it says it is not a valid variable name. I would think that it needs to be variable name, not asterisks since it will be the results of a calculated field.
Any help for a beginner is very much appreciated.
