Hi friends,
I m trying to write a program in Java to manipulate my personal collection of books.
Below is the code I have writen till now. If you have some ideas?

package Books;
import java.util.*;

class Book{
    private int isbn;
    private String title;
    private static int count=0;
    
    public Book(){
    	count ++;
    	}
	public void readBook(){
	
	int isbn=0;
	Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);
    String temp;
    	
    	Book book = new Book();	
	    System.out.print("ISBN: ");
		temp=input.nextLine();
		book.setIsbn(Integer.parseInt(temp));
	    
	    System.out.print("title: ");
	    String title = input.nextLine();
	    book.setTitle(title);
    }
    public int getCount(){
    	return count;
    }
    public void incrCount(){
    	this.count++;
    }
    public int getIsbn() {
        return isbn;
    }

    public void setIsbn(int isbn) {
        this.isbn = isbn;
    }

    public String getTitle() {
        return title;
    }

    public void setTitle(String title) {
        this.title = title;
    }   
}
package Books;
import java.util.Scanner;
import java.io.*;

public class Main {
    public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException, NumberFormatException{
        
        Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);
        Book book = new Book();
        int choice;
        Book[] books = new Book[10];
        int currentIndex;
        String temp;
        
       
	    
        while(true){
        do{
            System.out.println("Library System");
            System.out.println("       1. add book");
            System.out.println("       2. display books");
            System.out.println("       3. save to file");
            System.out.println("       4. load from file");
            System.out.println("       0. exit");
            System.out.print("choice: ");
            temp = input.nextLine();
            choice = Integer.parseInt(temp);
        }while ((choice < 0) || (choice > 4));
        
        switch (choice){
            
            case 1: //read isbn, title
            		currentIndex=book.getCount();
            		book.readBook();
                    //add current book to the array
                    books[currentIndex+1] = book;
                    book.incrCount();
                    break;
            case 2: //display array of books
            		currentIndex=book.getCount();
                    System.out.println("ISBN         Title   ");
                    for(int i=0; i< currentIndex; i++){
                    System.out.println(books[i].getIsbn()+"  "+books[i].getTitle()+"  ");
                    }
                    break;
            case 3: break;
            case 4: break;
            case 0: return ;
            
        }
        }//end while true
       }
}

i have some similar code for a cd collection. make 1 class for the collection, and another for the disk (in your cae a book)

your code looks good so far, just try and get all the basic repetitive parts done first. constructors, mutators, acessors

and then work on the more advanced methods

An idea? Use JDBC to store book information then retrieve it later.

Files are ok, but it might be easier to query necessary information than try to make a dozen different methods for obtaining books in certain order, or certain books period.
