can anybody explain to me why case 1 is getting an orphaned case error?

Line 12 you appear to be trying to declare a new int inside the switch - obviously an error.

Anyway, each case looks like

switch (index) ...
    case n:
      if (index == (n-1)) ...

so you can guarantee that every if test will be false and nothing will ever be printed.
It's not clear why you are using a switch anyway - it looks like you simply mean

System.out.print(Project[index]);

logical errors tout court:

switch (int index) {
        case 1:
            if(index=0)

do you know what a switch and an if is? do you know the difference between = and == ?

what exactly are you trying to do in these three lines?

I guess this is wat you are looking for:

public int getArrayValue(int index){
    System.out.println(Project[index-1]);
}

sorry before,,,,,as a newbie,,,,i wanna ask you mr.aravind326 on your reply above,,, exactly on this code

`1. public int getArrayValue(int index){
 2.   System.out.println(Project[index-1]);
 3. }`

why did you put System.out.println on a method that have a return value?,,,,
will it have a problem when it is compiled or not?,,,,,,,
why didn't you put a variable or etc that return the value as return blablabla; on your method that have a data primitive type (int)?

CMIIW :)

Edited 4 Years Ago by edo.muhammad2: there's some a wrong words that i have to change

Ah. yes...

It would have a problem as there is no return statement.

I just was trying to focus on the point being "Project[index-1]" holds the desired value.

Thanks for pointing it out. My bad. :)
