Increament operator error

i started learning JAVA a few days back.
i thought of writing my first program on arithmetic operators.
but i m getting compilation error with the "++" operator.
below is my code.
[code]public class IntArithmeticOperations {
public static void main(String args[]){
System.out.println("Arithmetic Operations Sample");

int i=10;

int increamentResult=++i;//This is ok
int increamentResult1=++(i);//This is also ok
int increamentResult2=doit(++i); //This is also ok
int increamentResult3=++(++i); //This gives a compilation
error
int increamentResult4=++(i=i++); //This gives a compilation error
int increamentResult5=++(i+1); //This gives a compilation error

System.out.println("IncreamentResult is"+increamentResult);
System.out.println("IncreamentResult1 is"+increamentResult1);
System.out.println("IncreamentResult2 is"+increamentResult2);
System.out.println("IncreamentResult3 is"+increamentResult3);
System.out.println("IncreamentResult4 is"+increamentResult4);
System.out.println("IncreamentResult5 is"+increamentResult5);
}
public static int doit(int i){
return i;
}
}[/code]

Please help me understand how the "++" operator works.

    int i=10; You have initialized the code which is good

    int increamentResult=++i;//This is ok
    this is saying add 1 which increments the value i to 11

    int increamentResult1=++(i);//This is also ok
    the brackets doesn't matter in this one its the same as before but you're adding 1 again which makes the value 12

    int increamentResult2=doit(++i); //This is also ok
    this is calling the doit method (which just goes down to see if there's anything in the method doit. You've only returned i so it comes back to this statement and increments it...so now its 13.

    int increamentResult3=++(++i); //This gives a compilation
    error

    this is causing an error because it wants a variable. You're not calling any methods and you can't just put ++ and (++i). make these statements in different lines
    e.g
    int increamentResult3=i++;
    int incrementResult4 = doits(++i);

    int increamentResult4=++(i=i++); //This gives a compilation error
    int increamentResult5=i++;

    //make another method

    int incrementResult5 = doits(i=i++);

    int increamentResult5=++(i+1); //This gives a compilation error

    System.out.println("IncreamentResult is"+increamentResult);
    System.out.println("IncreamentResult1 is"+increamentResult1);
    System.out.println("IncreamentResult2 is"+increamentResult2);
    System.out.println("IncreamentResult3 is"+increamentResult3);
    System.out.println("IncreamentResult4 is"+increamentResult4);
    System.out.println("IncreamentResult5 is"+increamentResult5);
    }
    public static int doit(int i){
    return i;
    }
    }
    hope i didn't confuse you too much :) i'm new to java too
