im getting an error while trying to print array contacts, why? any help? Thanks! :)

this is my class Address where im gettingthe error:

import java.io.*;
import java.util.*;
  public class Address{

      //Declare variables
      String first;
	  String last;
	  String homeadd;

		Scanner sc =  new Scanner(System.in);

	  public Address(String firstName, String lastName, String homeAddress, String homePhone, String cellNumber){
	  	first=firstName;
	  	last=lastName;
	  	homeadd=homeAddress;
	  	homeph=homePhone;

	}
}

      Address(){
      }

		double contacts[];
      //Get address
      public void getaddress(){
		  System.out.println("How many contacts do you want to add?");
		  int number= sc.nextInt();
		  contacts = new double [number];
		  for( int i = 1; i<=number; i++){
		  System.out.println();
		  System.out.println("Enter contact "+i+ " first name:");
		  first = sc.next();
		  //outFile.print(first);

	  }}

	  public void print(){

		  infile = sc.next();
		  System.out.println("Enter location of the output file.");
		  outfile = sc.next();
		  }
	  }

and this is my class Project:

import java.io.*;
import java.util.*;
   class Project{
	   static Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in);


	   public static void main(String[] args){
		   int answer;

		   addressObject.homeadd = "null";
		   addressObject.homeph = "null";
		   addressObject.cellnum = "null";





		   //Menu print
		   System.out.println("1. Add contacts to the address book.");
		   System.out.println("2. See if a person is in the address book.");
		   System.out.println("3. Print the address book.");
		   System.out.println("4. Save the address book to disk.");
		   System.out.println("5. Load the address book from disk.");
		   System.out.println("6. Terminate the program.");


		   //Get data member to navigate menu
			answer = sc.nextInt();
		   //Switch to navigate menu
		   switch (answer){
			   case 1: addressObject.getaddress();
			   addressObject.printMenu();
			   break;

			   break;
			   case 6: System.exit(0);
			   break;
			   default: System.out.println("Enter a number between 1 and 6.");
		   }
	   }
   }
public void print(){
System.out.println("Address Book Contacts "+contacts[i]);
}

Where do you define 'i' at the above code? That is why you get the error.

Also you will have many Addresses at your program. Meaning that you will have a collection of Addresses. So why do you put the printMenu and functionality in that class.
Have this:

public class Address{

      //Declare variables
      String first;
	  String last;
	  String homeadd;
	  String homeph;
	  String cellnum;


	  public Address(String firstName, String lastName, String homeAddress, String homePhone, String cellNumber){
	  	first=firstName;
	  	last=lastName;
	  	homeadd=homeAddress;
	  	homeph=homePhone;
	  	cellnum=cellNumber;
	  }

public Address() {
}

// have methods for getting and setting the value of the class

In another class, in the main method you will have your menu and you will create instances of the class Address

i actually changed the code to this, is it fine?

import java.io.*;
import java.util.*;
   class Project{
	   static Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in);

	   public static void main(String[] args)throws IOException{
		   int answer;
		   answer = 0;

		   //Call constructor and set those variables as null
		   Address addressObject = new Address();
		   addressObject.first = "null";
		   addressObject.last = "null";
		   addressObject.homeadd = "null";
		   addressObject.homeph = "null";
		   addressObject.cellnum = "null";


		   //Menu print
		   System.out.println("***Address Book Menu***");
		   System.out.println("1. Add contacts to the address book.");
		   System.out.println("2. See if a person is in the address book.");
		   System.out.println("3. View contacts in the address book.");
		   System.out.println("4. Terminate the program.");


		   //Choose number to navigate menu
			answer = sc.nextInt();

		   //Switch to navigate menu
		   switch (answer){
			   case 1: System.out.println();
			   addressObject.getaddress();
			   addressObject.printMenu();
			   break;
			   case 2: //make method to search then print yes/no
			   break;
			   case 3: System.out.println();
			   addressObject.print();
			   System.out.println();
			   addressObject.printMenu();
			   break;
			   case 4: System.exit(0);
			   break;
			   default: System.out.println("Enter a number between 1 and 4.");
		   }
	   }
   }

and about the case 3, how can i make a method to search in the txt file and print yes/no ?? any ideas??? Thanks! :D

Since you don't seem to get my suggestions I prepared this small document on how to proceed:

The Address class will have ONLY these:

class Address {
  private String first = "";
  // rest attributes last, homeadd ...
  
  public Address() {
  }
  
  public String getFirst() {
    return first;
  }
  public void setFirst(String first) {
    this.first = first;
  }
  
  // rest methods for last, homeadd ...
}

Read the class Vector. Look at the methods add, get, size

class AddressBook {
  public Vector addresses = new Vector();
  
  public AddressBook() {
  
  }
}

And in the main class

public class Main() {
  public static void main(String [] args) {
      Scanner scan = new Scanner(System.in);
      AddressBook book = new AddressBook();
      String choice = "";
      
      
      // print menu
      ....
      //
      choice = scan.nextLine();
      
      if (choice.equals("1") { // add contacts
        Address ad = new Address();
        // read the data from the keyboard (scan.nextLine())
        // use the set methods (ad.setFirst(...)
        book.addresses.add(ad);
        
      } else if (.. "2") { // See if a person is in the address book
        // read the name from the keyboard
        // loop the Vector and take each Address. Then compare the name of each Address with the one given
        
      } else if (.. "3") { // View contacts in the address book
        // loop the Vector, take each Address and print its values
      
      } else if (.. "4") { // Exit
        
      } else {
        System.out.println("Error choice");
      }
  }
}

You might want to put the part form the "print menu" till the "if statements" into a while loop in order to add multiple Addresses and repeat the proccess:

while (!choice.equals("4") {

}

can u give me some code that helping me making simple addressbook?

thats have output

attributes | description
name |
address |
telnum |
email add |

using util scanner

and provide nesscesarry accessor and mutator methods all the attributes

and creating object provide
add entry, delete entry view entries,, update entry
