    Exclamation creating a controller to allow instances to be created from keyboard

    Hi,

    I was wanting some help creating a controller for 2 classes which I have already created, Academic and Employee. I have not created a controller before and so I am a little unsure as to where to begin with this. I have had a look online at some tutorials but all seems a little more complex than what I feel my sepcification requires.

    This is my first Java assignment, for the higher marks we have not been given much detail, but simply asked to create a controller which allows instances of Employee and Academic to be created from the keyboard.

    Could someone please help me with this. It would be greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks

    I'm not really sure I know what that actually means to be honest, is the controller just a new class which creates Employees and Academics?

    import java.util.Scanner;
    ...
     
    Scanner sIn = new Scanner(System.in);
     
    String name = sIn.nextLine();

    You get the idea??
