in the testPlanet2 class, if i declare an array for Planet class and assign the value with the planet age and also use for loop to do it as long as display too. but i get an error while i assigning the age value into my array. help dude. :)
and i was just tried on the first looping. :)

Planet[] arrayPlanet = new Planet[4];

creates an array with slots for four Planets, but all those slots are originally empty (null). You need to initialise them with actual instances of Planet, eg

arrayPlanet[0] = new Planet("Venus", 255);
arrayPlanet[1] = new Planet("Mercury", ... etc

Now you can get rid of your p2, p3 etc variables and use the array instead, and get rid of all the if tests inside the loop. eg

System.out.println(arrayPlanet[i].calculateAge(age));
