    Because "row 1 \n" is the literal string composed of those 7 characters ('\n' is a single character, of course)

    You want to concatenate the String pointed to by the variable row1 to a newline character - or, better, to use the println method, which adds the newline for you.

    Like so:


    EDIT - oh, I see. You can't use println? Then use concatenation:


    or else

    String newline = "\n";
    System.out.print(row1 + newline);

    since it's usually a good idea to name your literals.

    The class definition defines a bunch of statements which define entities (fields and methods). Those are evaluated in sequence as the definition is read. If a line creates a field, and that field is an object, it has to be created - that means its constructor is called and run. The method that constructs a House object is also defined there, as the second line of the class, but that method doesn't run until it's called, which happens later on. (this is why the Window(33) call happens last, even though it appears second in sequence in the file)

    As an experiment, you might want to add this:

    class Floor {
        Floor() { System.out.println("Floor");}
        Window fw1 = new Window (45);

    Don't add any references to it, just add the definition. Do you expect to see the call to the window constructor with an argument of 45? Why or why not?

    What is the correct way to implement the getCalls() method?

    That depends. What is is supposed to do?

    Your theme song is both hysterical and sad. I doubt the truth in it, but I get the point.
