I am a Java beginner, perhaps it is my third Java program, sorry for my poor skill in Java. I donot use Eclipse to write Java codes, it is not good at editting codes, I prefer notepad ++ ( and SciTE(, Eclipse is a good integrated tool for developing Java program, but it is not the suitable editor to purely edit codes. I learn a lot from people's comment, later I will continue to post my codes here for comments.
I donot know how to post long codes, I donot have space to attach my program.

I disagree. Eclipse is entirely suitable as a code editor, even if you ignore
all its other features. Ditto NetBeans. Ditto many others.

I am interested in the details of why you find Eclipse unsuitable. What are they?

Don't post long programs. Post simple, short, complete, compilable examples
(SSCCEs) that reveal your difficulty.

What you posted in the beginning was an SSCCE. It was enough from my point of
view, anyway.

As for not having space to attach your programs, sure you do. You've already
done it. Not that you should attach anything, you should do exactly as you did
and include it in the body of your post.

However, this is a discussion group, so when people ask you questions you
should participate in the discussion.

He has a point. We don't know why you came to us. Why did you?
