how to make a program

Many people use an IDE when they make a program, however you can use any text editor to do it.

If you are new to java, and have not covered GUI's yet, then one of the easier options of doing a menu is with a switch.

First thing is first, you need to create a class from which you can create an instance of the object, until you have that basic step done, there is no point trying to figure out the rest.

I just reread your post and realised it didn't quite make as much sense as when I skimmed it, Maybe try and word it better.

If you're doing a switch-case, then just use print prompts with System.out and then read in the input.

Ooh, ooh, can we have the IDE versus editor war? I dibs vi! :)

Let's get a little more specific.

What sort of objects do you want to handle?
That will help us answer: how will you accept them? (as command-line input, interactive keyboard input, mouse-driven interface, some combination, or reading data from some source like a URL?)
What sort of representation do you want (list of data points in the standard output, pretty picture in a JFrame, plot a graph and render the graph into an audio file?)

Start with the first question: what sort of objects are we talking about?

/* This program would use console/GUI,*/
/* It should 
1 adding of object
2 display of object
3 updating of object
 4 deleting of object
 
*/

import java.util.*;

public class EmployeeList{

	private int [] Age;
	private String [] EmpfirstName;
	private String [] Emplast;
	private String [] Adrss;
	static Scanner console= new Scanner(System.in);
	
//	public EmloyeeList(){
	// what should i put this part
 //   }
	/* I want to enter the first name of the employee please check if the method is 
	  right*/
	public void EmpfirstName(String EmpfirstName){
	for(int i=0;i<EmpfirstName.length;i++)
	 System.out.println("Enter Employee first name");
	 EmpfirstName=console.nextLine();
	 System.out.println(EmpfirstName[i]);	
		}
	/*I want to enter the last name of the employee here same please if the is right*/
	 public void EmplastName(String  EmplastName){
	 	for(int i=0; i< EmplastName.length;++) 
		System.out.println("Enter Last Name");
		 EmplastName=console.nextLine();
		 System.out.println( EmplastName[i]);
		 }
		 	/*I want to enter the Address of the employee here same please if the is right*/

		 	public void Adrss(String  Adrss){
			for(int i=0;i< Adrss	.length;i++)
			System.out.println("Enter your Address");
			 Adrss=console.nextLine();
			 System.out.println( Adrss	[i]);
			 }	/*I want to enter the last name of the employee here same please if the is right*/

		public void Age(int age){
		 for(int=i;i<Age.length;i++)
		 System.out.println("Enter your Age");
		 Age=console.nextInt();
		 System.out.println(Age[i]);
		 }
		/* Please check if it is right because i was really confused
		thanks ...*/
		
		}
			
			}

this the error of my code and please if you already get the correct one please the post it ...
thanks a lot

Edited 3 Years Ago by Nick Evan: Fixed formatting

private int [] Age;
public void Age(int age){
for(int=i;i<Age.length;i++)

you have several variables/method named Age. You have confused the compiler. It does't know which one you want. Change them all so that they are different.

C:\Documents and Settings\Home\Desktop\EmployeeList.java:58: class, interface, or enum expected

Check that all the {} are paired correctly.

yeah that what...but please just edit my program please...so that it well be really ok
thank NormR1 thanks you so much i hope you well my favor i ask you

yeah that what...but please just edit my program

There are probably some chuckleheads who will be willing to do your homework for you - there's been a lot of that lately. Don't worry, some maroon will come along who wants to show off how half-smart he is, and post some possibly-working code that you can just take and turn in, without bothering to think about or learn from the assignment.

Or, if you're actually interested, you could conceivably try to use the advice you've just been given and fix the problem. Your call.
