Read about the Time class ... you'll get what you want.

I hope this helps, the main stages are as follows:

1. Read In a String literal
2. Create a Calender object
3. Set up arrays for day names and month names
4. Get the current values of the date using the Calender.get(XYZ) methods
5. Based on these values get the correct names from the arrays - i.e. monday
/ july
6. Continously Display a menu using the do-while loop
7. Prompt user for number, convert the string(choiceString) to an
integer(choice)
8. Set a task for each integer using the Switch statement
9. If integer = 5, then exit.
