Ok, so what is the question?

and why do this in Java? It's purely structural programming, far more suited to Pascal or C.

Here is how the program should work:

Offer the user the following 10 menu options (they must enter the option#)

1. Insert "n" values in the array starting at position 1
2. insert "n" value into the array as long as there is room
3. print all user-entered values (must show both index and value at index)
4. return average(not sum) and (must not loop over locations not being used)
5. return minimum
6. return number of times user-chosen value occurs in the array.
7. change a value of one array element chosen by index number
8. return the first position a given values occurs
9. delete the value in the user-defined position e.g (1=index1 etc), and compact the array
10. quit the program.

NOTE: all the above must be done using Switch Statement and JOptionPane.

Ok, you still haven't posted a question. We are not going to read all of the requirements and make sure that all of your code meets those requirements. That's your instructors job - grading your work.

If you have a question, state it clearly.
