NetBeans and Java Help

07 November 2012 - 08:18 PM

Hey all, looking for some help:D I decided to teach myself how to program. I am running Ubuntu 12.04 on a dual core laptop, 3GB Ram. I went with Python for a couple of days, and after some more reading, decided to swap over to Java, since when I finally get around to making a game, I would want it cross platform easily? Anyway, so I have been working throught the Java tutorial trail, using NetBeans IDE, and honestly, some of the stuff just doesnt work. Is this typical with Java? I type the code out line for line on the CreatObjectsDemo,

public static void main(String[] args) {
// Declare and create a point object
// and two rectangle objects.
Point originOne = new Point(23, 94);
Rectangle rectOne = new
Rectangle(originOne, 100, 200);
Rectangle rectTwo =
new Rectangle(50, 100);

and it compiles errors like these

Compiling 1 source file to /home/skull/NetBeansProjects/CreatObjectDemo/build/classes
/home/skull/NetBeansProjects/CreatObjectDemo/src/creatobjectdemo/CreatObjectDemo.java:19: cannot find symbol
symbol : class Point

location: class creatobjectdemo.CreatObjectDemo
Point originOne = new Point(23, 94);
/home/skull/NetBeansProjects/CreatObjectDemo/src/creatobjectdemo/CreatObjectDemo.java:19: cannot find symbol
symbol : class Point

location: class creatobjectdemo.CreatObjectDemo
Point originOne = new Point(23, 94);
/home/skull/NetBeansProjects/CreatObjectDemo/src/creatobjectdemo/CreatObjectDemo.java:20: cannot find symbol
symbol : class Rectangle


It is using the JDK 1.6 library, am currently having issues getting it to add platform 1.7 would the library be the cause of this issue?
Any thanks will be greatly appreciated :D

*edit* there are indents in the code, copy and paste is right on preview, shows no indents on submittal? *meh*
