confusing constructor, setters and getters are a mess etc... I suggest you write it again on a paper.What I do is write one method at a time and test it.

Could you specify what language you are using? Java or JSP for example. If this is Java, there are a lot more errors according to Eclipse Platform (41 errors and 5 warnings)Examples:1 "ArrayList is a raw type. References to generic type ArrayList<E> should be parameterized" (you shoud infer generic type arguments)2 "pswdHistory cannot be resolved" (the class member is spelled incorrectly)3 "Syntax error on token "boolean", @ expected" (the setAutoExpires method is never closed)
