Error: Could not find or load main class SymbolArt$SymbolArt
Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: SymbolArt$SymbolArt

asked in CSC211_Winter2018 by (8 points)

It sounds a little bit like you might have tried to put a class inside of a class... e.g.

public class SymbolArt {
     public class SymbolArt {

You should also check whether you wrote

public static void main(String[] args) {


(But you may have to provide more details for us to help.)


I’ve fixed the problem. The mistake was not on my coding, I created a new class, and copied the exact same codes on the new class and worked. A friend told me that, some times there are exceptions that the failure might be from java itself.


I doubt it was from Java -- it was probably something that went wrong in the Eclipse editor.

I had the same issue! It's funny how the smallest things can mess it all up.
