 P: 55 I am using the netbeans IDE All I am trying to do is print out to the screen, but I keep getting this error. Exception in thread "main" java.lang.RuntimeException: Uncompilable source code - Erroneous sym type: system.out.println at mysqlconn.mainhgf4.main(mainhgf4.java:19) Here is my short code package mysqlconn; import java.io.BufferedReader; /** * */ public class mainhgf4{ /** * @param args the command line arguments */ public static void main(String[] args) { system.out.println("Welcome friend!!"); } } This is not really a java program, it is a SQL program that I am supposed to somehow implement a DB in java... IDK im so frustrated over this. I am originally a C programmer and have very basic knowledge of java, but the fact that I have to incorporate a database and SQL queries is making this impossible for "ME", I know alot of people can do this with their eyes closed.
