Yes. Because you have no main method - you need to put any code (other than variable declarations) inside methods. The main method is the method that runs when you first start your program, *edit*


Oops, nevermind - I see that you do have a main method. For statements like String lang, then lang = "abc", you would need to initially just say String lang = "abc"; . . and what I said about only having variable declarations still stands. lang = "abc" is an assignment statement, and thus, isn't allowed unless you do it inside of a method.

Satisfied or not, he's right. Everything except variable declarations have to be inside a method. Post your latest code, with code=java tags.

Guys i changed the code now i get 3 errors plz HLP me out errors are after the code

Everything except variable declarations still have to be inside a method. Indent your code so you can see where methods and classes end. Your errors start immediately after the end of the init method because the following code isn't in a method.
This would have been obvious to you with proper indentation and code tags.

ps: If you have code that looks like this:

catch(Exception ee) {}

then what you are saying is: "if my code goes wrong I do not want to know why or where it happened. Please just stop executing and give me no help at all".
Try replacing all those with

catch(Exception ee) {
  ee.printStackTrace();
}

so you know what's happening.
