    Default Address Book Help

    import java.io.*;

            AddressBook aBook = new AddressBook();
            AddressBook bBook = new AddressBook();
            AddressBook cBook = new AddressBook();
     
            aBook.setName("Boy Katay");
            bBook.setName("Kris Manginum");

            "\nEmail            :"+cBook.getEmail());
     
       }
     
     
        public String getName(){
           return name;      
        }
        public void setName( String name ){
           this.name = name;
        } 
        public String getAddress(){
            return address;
        }
        public void setAddress( String address ){
           this.address = address;
        }  
         public int getTelephone(){
           return telephone;      
        }
        public void setTelephone( int telephone ){
           this.telephone = telephone;
        }  
        public String getEmail(){
           return email;      
        }
        public void setEmail( String email){
           this.email= email;
        }
        public String getAtt(){
           return att;      
        }  
        public void setAtt( String att){
           this.att= att;
        }
     
    }

    How can I make this code so that I can create a class address book that can contain 50 entries of AddressBookEntry objects (using the code above). And it should provide the following methods for the address book.

    1. Add entry
    2. Delete entry
    3. View all entries
    4. Update an entry

    Why are you using 2 dimensional arrays in your main method? I fail to see the reasoning.
