System.out.println("Name is: " + name + " Age is: " + age + "Nationality is:" + nationality); );

I've try your codes it runs error free

oh totally missed that ); thanks for the heads up. I know you said you were getting no errors but now I'm getting missing method body...

// ------------------------------------------------------------
// Another constructor - with two parameters - if you know the name and the age of a Person
// ------------------------------------------------------------
Person(String newName, int newAge, String newNationality);
{
name = newName;
age = newAge;
nationality = newNationality;
}

Error:

Person.java:26: missing method body, or declare abstract
    Person(String newName, int newAge, String newNationality);
    ^
Person.java:28: cannot find symbol
symbol  : variable newName
location: class Person

No semicolons after method names in the definition.

// ------------------------------------------------------------
// Another constructor - with two parameters - if you know the name and the age of a Person
// ------------------------------------------------------------
Person(String newName, int newAge, String newNationality);
{
name = newName;
age = newAge;
nationality = newNationality;
}

Look at line 4.
Just a few small errors. It looks like you know what your doing for the most part. Good work.
By the way, to use code tags use code=java, not java=code. Thanks :)
