NZEC error in SPOJ

Why am I getting runtime NZEC error in SPOJ when I paste this code?

package spoj.test;

import java.util.*;

public class Main {

public static void main(String[] args) {
Scanner scanner = new Scanner(System.in);
int number = 0;
while (number != 42) {
try {
number = scanner.nextInt();
} catch (InputMismatchException exception) {
if (number != 42)

I have tried every input I can think of and it runs fine. What could make this throw a non- zero error? Thanks in advance.


You can't place SPOJ submissions in a package, so remove the declaration:

package spoj.test;

The non-zero exit code probably comes from the JVM not being able to load the class to run it.
