    Default Switch Statment

    Hi i was just wondering if anyone had any solutions to changing this switch statement to an IF ELSE statement, solutions would be helpful.

    switch (option) {

    // add person
    case 1:
    addPerson();

    // shows the person added
    JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, "\nThe following person has been added: \n");
    printPerson(numberOfPersons - 1);

    break;

    // search person
    case 2:

    searchPerson();

    break;

    // prints all the people listed
    case 3:

    printAllPersons();

    break;

    // quits the program
    case 4:

    JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, "Program terminated...\nHave a nice day =]");

    // quit
    System.exit(0);

    break;

    default:
    // warn user that something has gone wrong
    JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, "You have entered invalid information mate! Please try again.");
    break;
    }
    }
    }
