Java Java Annotations Writing Your Own Annotation Putting It All Together

Putting it all together (Can anyone give me the answer to this question.)

Apply the @Test annotation to exactly three methods of the SocialNetworkTest class, specifying values for both elements in each of the three annotations (that is, don't rely on the element defaults).

import java.lang.annotation.*;

public @interface Test { 
   int num() default 1;
   boolean enabled() default true;
import java.lang.annotation.*;
public class SocialNetworkTest {
  @Test(num = 3, enabled = false)
  public void testTweet() {

  @Test(num = 1, enabled = false)
  public void testInsta() { 

@Test(num = 2, enabled = false)
  public void testFacebook() { 


  public void testPinterest() { 


  public void testSnapchat() { 

public class TestAnalyzer {
   *  Counts the number of methods in the class given by `clazz` that have been annotated
   *  with the @Test annotation.
  public static int getNumAnnotatedMethods(Class<?> clazz) {
    return 0;

Hey Chance Edward 👋

I just tried pasting your code in the challenge and once I hit the 3rd task I'm getting the following error:

Bummer: It appears that at least one of your annotations either omits one of your defined elements in the @Test annotation or has used the same value as the default.

On your second @Test you're setting num to be 1 which is the default you've set in Test.java on line 6.

Simply change the value of num in that second @Test instance and your code should pass the challenge as expected.

Hope this helps!
