I have just recently typed the code below, and it keeps giving me the the error message: Error: Could not find or load main class ScopeApp. I have looked all over the internet for the internet for the solution but I can't find it. So can someone please help me.
Code:

public class ScopeApp
{
static int x;
public static void main(String[] args)
{
x = 5;
System.out.println("main: x = " + x);
myMethod();
}
public static void myMethod()
{
int y;
y = 10;
if (y == x + 5)
{
int z;
z = 15;
System.out.println("myMethod: z = " + z);
}
System.out.println("myMethod: x = " + x);
System.out.println("myMethod: y = " + y);
}
}

When does it(?) give you that error message? Have you tried putting your class in a package?

Yes, likely it's in what's called the "default package."

Yes, but how are you trying to run the code?

Are you right-clicking ScopeApp.java in the Project or Package Explorer
view and choosing Run/Debug As... ?

Short answer: make one up for now, you can always change it later. Long answer: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/codeconventions-135099.html .

Ok I have put it in a package called com.example.scope_app. But after I click on the 'run' button to try running the code below, the computer output says Error: Could not find or load main class com.example.scope_app.ScopeApp. So what do I do now?
Code:
package com.example.scope_app;

public class ScopeApp
{

static int x;

public static void main(String[] args)
{
x = 5;
System.out.println("main: x = " + x);
myMethod();
}

public static void myMethod()
{
int y;
y = 10;
if (y == x + 5)
{
int z;
z = 15;
System.out.println("myMethod: z = " + z);
}
System.out.println("myMethod: x = " + x);
System.out.println("myMethod: y = " + y);
}

}

Was a ScopeApp.class file created (check from outside of Eclipse)? Are you using something else to do the compilation like Ant or Maven? Are there any messages in the Problems or Markers views?
