Please post your question not just your code expecting people will try to figure out what sort of errors you getting and what are you actually trying to achieve

first error: using magic return values to indicate success or failure is not a good idea.
Use the exception handling system instead.

i dont know what is the error i cannot run this one...
im only new in programming.

Obviously if you not able to run this program that means that Java compiler found some errors in your code and you been supposed to posted this errors.
