You've left off a description of what the program is to do and what your problem is.

Looking at the immediately preceding posted code, I see that some of it is missing.

First of all i'm not sure what you are expecting, i didn't run your code to see what is wrong, but from the look of it, i found these codes a bit unusual;

public String setID()            { return ID; }

and

public String getID()            { return ID; }

Both have the same functionality, and i presume setID() should look some thing like this

public String setID(String ID)            { this.ID= ID; }

Love to help, but I'm not reading through all that. I see you started to get the array in order, then you switched to individual variables distinguished by numbers (property 2, property3, etc). That's a little weird.

Have you got a question in there?

i want to thank everyone for helping,this is a great site..
I'm giving up this subject
I'll just fail it for now,, i will fight though another day
thanks friends..
