    Lightbulb Smart Library Management System..What Wrong with my code

    3. All Smartsí university has a library with extensive collection of books. A student can rent up to 5 books at a time.
    Write a program to manage:
    a. Issuing books
    b. Returning books
    c. Searching for book using title

    I have Written the following code..but everytime i run the libraryApp class my arraylist in libraryFunction size is 0.
    I cant understand Why..can any1 plz help me with this.

    Note: I have to the program using only arraylist.

    package smartLibrary;

    public class Student {

    String name;
    int age;
    int rollNo;
    public String getName() {
    return name;
    }

    public void setName(String name) {
    this.name = name;
    }

    public int getAge() {
    return age;
    }

    public void setAge(int age) {
    this.age = age;
    }

    public int getRollNo() {
    return rollNo;
    }

    public void setRollNo(int rollNo) {
    this.rollNo = rollNo;
    }

    public Student(String name, int age, int rollNo) {
    super();
    this.name = name;
    this.age = age;
    this.rollNo = rollNo;
    }



    }


    package smartLibrary;

    public class books {

    int bookId;
    String name;
    String author;
    String Title;
    public books()
    {

    }
    public int getBookId() {
    return bookId;
    }
    public void setBookId(int bookId) {
    this.bookId = bookId;
    }
    public String getName() {
    return name;
    }
    public void setName(String name) {
    this.name = name;
    }
    public String getAuthor() {

    Hello funkyonly4u!
    I added a print statement in the issueBook(Student st1,books b,int copies) method for printing the lib's size and hardcoded the switch in your main method to get case 1 and and it gave me size = 1. Do you get a zero there? It would help if you explained more the problem you are facing.
    And please use the code tags to get highlighting in your code.

    No even i am getting size=1 but when i rerun the code giving args[0]=1 i still get the size=1. The previous details are not retained in the arraylist.
    Why is that???

    The variables you use and their values exist only while your program executes. When it stops executing they don't exist anymore. When you run it again it starts again with new variables and values. If you want to fill your list with multiple objects you can use a loop (a while loop seems appropriate to your program) with a control variable which will indicate when the loop stops.
