Pets need people

"You become responsible forever for what you've tamed," said Antoine de Saint-Exupery through the mouth of the Little Prince's fox friend. Let's clean up our program and not leave any animal without a caregiver. We'll create a cat, a dog, and a fish. And a woman. And then we'll assign her as the owner of the fish, dog, and cat. We think she'll like this!

completed it by trial and error and the hints in the comments. I feel that I am missing some base knowledge in my mental model of variable declaration/initialization/connection. Otherwise it would have been apparent. It is possible it is knowledge gained through repetition. Which I hope it is otherwise will be a weakness in the future. :(

Okay, I got it. It took me a couples of tries, but when I figured it out, it's actually pretty simple. Hint: You can name each animal object whatever you want AS LONG AS the "Woman" object is listed FIRST 😉👍 Example: Cat fuzzy = new Cat(); fuzzy.owner = ownername; OR Cat.whiskers = new Cat(); whiskers.owner = ownername; See the pattern? 😉👌 Hint 2: Woman object only needs a name. Example: Woman beth = new Woman(); OR Woman sarah = new Woman();

I wish there was a way to block the pop ups after verification.

1) create a new Woman, save with a variable name, her name 2) create a new Cat, save with the cat's name 3) catname.owner = woman's name 4) create a new Dog, save with dog's name 5) dogname.owner = woman's name 6) create a new fish, save with fish name 7)fishname.owner = woman's name That's it. don't touch anything but the main method.

I don't understand what we're actually doing here. Are we assigning a value of a variable to a class?? when using dog.owner = woman;

What you're doing here is assigning a value to a variable. Here dog is an object and inside it is a variable called 'owner'. If you examine the code for the class Dog you will find a variable called 'owner' declared there which is of a type Woman. So when you create the dog object, it automatically has a variable called 'owner' inside it (as Objects contain whatever is there in the class they are born from). It is this variable dog.owner that has to be given a value, so effectively you are setting the value of this 'owner' variable to woman when you type dog.owner = woman;

The Woman object is woman. Make woman the owner of the animals. That is the solution.

WHATS WRONG WITH THIS? package com.codegym.task.task02.task0213; /* Pets need people */ public class Solution { public static void main(String[] args) { Cat cat = new Cat(); Dog dog = new Dog(); Fish fish = new Fish(); Women women = new Women(); cat.owner = women; dog.owner = women; fish.owner = women; } public static class Cat { public Woman owner; } public static class Dog { public Woman owner; } public static class Fish { public Woman owner; } public static class Woman { } }
