I have to do this project in which several employees need to be added to the system.
The system admin should be able to allocate jobs that each of those employees will be doing after verifying whether that job is already attached to the employee or not and whether that job exists.
I also need to be able to list all the employees who are on the system as well as all the jobs which are available.
The employers need to be listed when you type the job name in, and the jobs need to be listed for each employee when you type the employee's name in.
I'm not allowed to use databases (which would make the whole thing SO easy) and I'm not a total expert at java so can someone suggest what the best approach towards this project would be?
I was thinking to use a hashmap to map each employee to their jobs, and making the jobs into an array for each employer. But that would require the system admin to hardcode some data in for each employee since it'll be done like....
and then doing an if statement saying if (user has searched for "joe") print joesJobs
This in my opinion is a pretty bad method and requires hardcoding of data so I'd love to hear some alternatives and hopefully if there's a really good method suggested then I'd use that.
Oh and +1 for every good suggestion!
