    Default Wheel of Fortune - Simple Game

    Well my Java class has been assigned to design a basic Wheel of Fortune game !! Sounds fun right? WRONG!! LoL.. Here is the thing, we have each been given a portion of the game to code, I got the -Update Player Data- portion.. I don't know if I should do this as a seperate .java or .class file from the main game.java or if I can simply add this to the current code?? I have to be able to Add/Subtract Points (Money), 1st Time Reset Points (money) to Zero, and 1st Enter Player Name .... I think I know how I need to code this, JButton, JLabel... right? Or am I looking at this incorrectly?? Right now we have a base to work with.. see below.. Thanks for the help!!

    Depends upon the requirements. If you are required to do with Buttons and Labels etc, then use else, there can be many other ways too.

    I would like there to be a button at the least to reset the current player total ... but I'm thinking this should all be included with the 'New Game' module.. Because clicking the 'New Game' button will reset so maybe that will call to my module as well... but also have it separate?

    Ok... here is my start..

    	public void initBoard(int player)  
    	   {
    	       players[player].initMyBoard(locInPuzzleBoard);
    	   }
     
     
    	   public void execute()
    	   {
    	      for ( int i = 0; i < players.length; i++ ) {
    	         try {
    	             players[i] = new Player( server.accept(), this, i );
    	             players[i].start();
    		 }
    	         catch( IOException e ) 
    	         {
    	             e.printStackTrace();
    	             System.exit(1);
    	         }
    	      }
    	      players[0].setTurn();
    	   }
