    Default JAva GUI Help needed. Please Help

    Can somebody please show what the rest of this code should look like. I have the GUI so far, but need help with the rest. Here is the Link to my code and the question to the problem is below.
    CarService - Pastebin.com

    RapidLube is a fast growing franchise that offers tremendous value for customers
    needing automotive maintenance services. Their current price list inclusive of all taxes
    (in USD) is as follows:
    Oil Change:
    •Natural : 19.95
    •Blend: 39.95
    •Synthetic: 49.95
    Tire Rotation: 60.00
    Muffler Replacement: 225.00
    Transmission Flush: 65.00
    Radiator Flush: 35.00
    In order to reward regular customers, the chain also offers a 10% discount off the total
    price.
    You are tasked with creating a GUI application (RapidLubeUI) to be used at their
    Point of Sale (POS) terminals with the following suggested specifications.
    The main application will open with a window as shown below with minimum size of
    600x200 pixels. Note the use of banner at the top and the buttons at the bottom. The main
    work area consists of sections: one for customer info, another for oil change and the third
    for maintenance services offered by Rapid Lube.
    The customer may optionally pick at most one type of oil change. However, a particular
    job may contain of any combination of maintenance items like Tire Rotation,
    Transmission Flush etc.
    The user interface will provide a quick way to estimate the total for a job. Clicking on the
    estimate button should bring up a dialog as follows detailing the estimated costs.
    A regular customer discount of 10% must be offered if the Regular Customer item is
    checked.
    The customer name cannot be empty for checkout. When the customer checks out,
    clicking on the checkout button will log the job (append data line) to a file named
    SalesLog.txt with following information: Timestamp, customer name and total
    amount as shown below.
    2010-Nov-29 08:45:31 AM, John Doe, 244.95
    Clicking on the exit button exits the application.
    NOTES:
    1. All dollar amounts presented should be restricted to two decimal places.
    2. Use of automated UI generating wizards is prohibited for this assignment
    3. You can use multiple classes as a project. In this case make sure you submit all
    project files in a single jar file.

    Where do you get a premium account?

    Try this:

    JFrame jf = new JFrame();

    jf.setMinimumSize(new Dimension(600, 200));

    As for the rest, start some code and I might be able to help you more.
