I tried dreamincode but the mods there are pretty mean so i have come here to humbly beg for help. First off let me start by saying I'm a new programmer and I am frustrated and cofused by the class i'm in prg 420. I need to pass this assignemn this week or i'll most likely fail this class, I wrote my own code but i am having trouble getting it to run error free i will first post the question and then the code i wrote.

Individual
Write a simple commission calculation program using IDE.

• The application will now compare the total annual compensation of at least two salespersons.

• It will calculate the additional amount of sales that each salesperson must achieve to match or exceed the higher of the two earners.

• The application should ask for the name of each salesperson being compared.

• Use OOP concepts as defined in the previous week program.

The Java™ application should also meet these technical requirements:

• The application should have at least one class, in addition to the application’s controlling class.
• The source code must demonstrate the use of Array or ArrayList and store the names, and total sales for each individual in the array or ArrayList data structure..
• There should be proper documentation in the source code.
• Include a screen shot of the running program.

Is this the same assignment as in your other thread?

here as well, what exactly is your problem?

I do see this block, which is pretty useless

for (index = name.length - 1; index >= 0; index--)
{
}

I don't understand this.
String[] name = new String[amount];' 'String[] secondname = new String[amount];

You're declaring a string for 2 names and intializing the array size to a number that the user is going to enter.

int amount = scan.nextInt();
String[] name = new String[amount];
String[] secondname = new String[amount];

Yes, that's perfectly valid sensible code.

I need a the code for week two assignment .. Can someone help ..!!?? It's considering the person has a fixed salary and commission as sales incentive and so on ! Anyone thanx
