Controlling Your Mac with AppleScript and Java

I am receiving the very same error with the second part of the example. I am very excited to see how this will work. I was sad to see the error even after cutting and pasting the other poster's code for analysis. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance


public class AppleScriptTest
public static void main(String[] args)
String script = "tell application \"Finder\" \n"
+ " get the name of the first item "
+ " in the desktop \n" + "end tell";
// This creates a new NSAppleScript
// object to execute the script
NSAppleScript myScript =
new NSAppleScript(script);
// This dictionary holds any errors that are
// encountered during script execution
NSMutableDictionary errors= new NSMutableDictionary();

// Execute the script!
NSAppleEventDescriptor results =
String resultString = results.stringValue();
System.out.println("The first item is:"
+ resultString);

System.out.println("Yay AppleSscript!");
