Well i am working on a drink dispenser machine and got stuck on array part, this program includes selecting a drink, show price, show changes and a option whether to purchase drink again
They are being placed on various method like
public void A()
select drink...
public void B()
calculate change...
public void C()
show change...
public void D()
Option to buy more

As for the array part, assuming each drink has 50 of them(method A will show the number of drink) if i buy drink A AND i choose to purchase more, the number of drinkA should be updated to 49 instead of 50.
I know i got to use array but i couldn't get it right no matter what i do
Here is wat i have done so far

import javax.swing.*;
import java.io.*;

public class SelfServiceMachine {
    private int type , price, payment,change,finish,gg,sum;
    private String choice;
    public void readChoice() {
        boolean error;
int[] myA;
  myA = new int[250];
  myA[0] = 50;
  myA[1] = 50;
  myA[2] = 50;
  myA[3] = 50;
  myA[4] = 50;

       
 do {

            choice = JOptionPane.showInputDialog(null, "Enter your choice of cake"
                    + "\n\n"
                    + "1.Strawberry(90 cents), no. of cakes available:"+myA[0]+"\n"

                    + "2 Chocolate(80 cents),  no. of cakes available: 50\n"
                    + "3.Vanilla(70 cents),    no. of cakes available: 50\n"
                    + "4.Almond(100 cents),    no. of cakes available: 50\n"
                    + "5.Durian(120 cents),    no. of cakes available: 50\n");
                    try{

                        type=Integer.parseInt(choice);

What was your meaning when writing these lines?

myA = new int[250];
myA[0] = 50;
myA[1] = 50;
myA[2] = 50;
myA[3] = 50;
myA[4] = 50;
