    General Java Programming

    Okay hi guys. I'm new here, but I have a question which my whole class can't solve.

    I don't know if outside links are allowed but
    Code:
    Introduction:
    
    SP Cake Shop sells five flavors of cake -- Strawberry, Chocolate, Vanilla, Almond and Durian. The shop has approached you to write a program for one of their newly designed self-service machine.
    
    The customer will first choose a cake and pay for it. The machine will dispense 1 dollar, 50 cents, 20 cents and 10 cents coins depending on the price of the cake and the payment received from the customer.
    
    1.	Overview 
    
    You are required to write Java classes that compute the change to be dispensed based on customer’s choice and the payment.
    
    The screenshots below illustrate the samples of the program output:
    
    
    Figure1.1: The program displays the 5 types of cakes, their prices and the number of cakes available respectively. If the user input is invalid, it displays an error message and prompts for re-input. You may assume there are 50 cakes available for each type of the cakes when the application is launches.
    
    Figure1.2: When the user input is valid, it displays the price for the selected cake.
    
    Figure1.3: The program prompts user to enter the payment, the payment should be more than or equal to the price. If the input is invalid, it prompts for the error and ask for the re-input.
                                    
    Figure1.4:  The program computes the change and then displays the change.
    
    Figure1.5:  The program displays the number of coins to be dispensed for each category of 1 dollar, 50 cents, 20 cents and 10 cents respectively. (Assume that the machine only accepts and dispenses the above types of coins).
    
    Figure1.6:  The program continues and asks the user whether he wants more cake. The program displays the menu if the user’s input is ‘1’, the number of cakes available is updated in the menu.
    
    Figure1.7:  The program displays the price when the user enters a valid input.
                                                      
    Figure1.8:  The program reads the payment and displays the change.
    
    Figure1.9:  The program displays the number of coins to be dispensed.
                                  
    Figure1.10:  The program continues and asks the user whether he wants more cake. If the user’s input is not ‘1’, it displays the "Thank you" message as shown and terminates.
    <-- this is my assignment.

    Now problem is. I've coded all the way up to figure 1.5 but starting from 1.6, I'm stuck. I know nobody is going to help me do my homework but can someone explain to me how should I continue?


    So this is what I've got up till now, if it can be made more efficient, please advice.
    Code:
    public class Cake1 {
        public static void main(String[] args) {
            int price, change, c1, c2, c3, c4;
            int nCakes=50;
    
            String type=JOptionPane.showInputDialog
                        (null,
                        "Enter your choice of cake:\n\n"
                        + "1. Strawberry(90cents),   no. of cakes available: "+nCakes+"\n"
                        + "2. Chocolate(80cents),     no. of cakes available: "+nCakes+"\n"
                        + "3. Vanilla(70cents),           no. of cakes available: "+nCakes+"\n"
                        + "4. Almond(100cents),       no. of cakes available: "+nCakes+"\n"
                        + "5. Durian(120cents),         no. of cakes available: "+nCakes+"\n","SP cake shop",
                        JOptionPane.QUESTION_MESSAGE);
    
           int readChoice=Integer.parseInt(type);
    
                    //Prompt error message if its not 1 to 5
                    if((readChoice < 1) || (readChoice > 5)){
                     JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null,"Invalid input! Please enter in the range from 1 to 5.","Error",
                             JOptionPane.ERROR_MESSAGE);
                    }
    
        int cost;
          switch(readChoice){
    
          case 1: JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, "The price is 90 cents" );
                      cost = 90;
                      do{
                     price = Integer.parseInt(JOptionPane.showInputDialog(null,"Please enter your payment (The price is "
                             +cost+ " cents)","SP cake shop",JOptionPane.QUESTION_MESSAGE));
                        
    
                      //Prompt error message if the payment is less than cost
                     if(price < cost){
                     JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null,"Invalid input! Please enter a minimum payment of "+cost+ " cents",

                          } while(price < cost);
                     change = price - cost;
                     JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, "The change is "+change+ " cents.");
    
                      c1 = (change / 100);
                      c2 = (change &#37; 100/50);
                      c3 = (change % 100%50/20);
                      c4 = (change % 100%50%20/10);

                        + c3 +" x 20c coin\n"
                        + c4 +" x 10c coin\n");
                     break;
    
            }       
          
              int contCake1=Integer.parseInt(JOptionPane.showInputDialog(null, "Do you want mor drinks?\n(Enter 1 for yes, other "
                  + "numbers for no","Input",JOptionPane.QUESTION_MESSAGE));
    
    
    
           
        }
    }
    This is not supposed to be the main class btw, just that I have no idea how to continue, so I had to leave it as that for the time being.

    Re: General Java Programming

    Good afternoon.

    Now you can't just pop on and ask "what next?". You should show exactly what you need to do, what you have done to do it, and why you think it might not be working. I'm sure you will find many willing to help you if you are more specific with your requirements. Tell us what you would like to try and we can tell you if it is flawed, doomed to fail, or a plausible idea.

    Plus, you could always ask your instructor. Their job is to instruct after all.

    Good luck =D

    Well the thing is, I have absolutely no idea what I need to do. Can't think of anything that might help me continue the question.

    And I can't ask my instructor. Asking them reduces the marks I'm gonna get.

    If you post the text of your assignment you are more likely to get help. Many people helping here won't readily click on links.

    Re: General Java Programming

    sounds like what you need is a while loop that runs until the user presses 1. Put your code in the while loop with the last instruction being getting the input from the user.

    Re: General Java Programming

    Please don't go back and edit earlier posts in the thread it makes the whole thread impossible to read as the reponses to your earlier post no longer make sense.

    If people ask for more info etc please just add another post.
