    Default Trying to figure out next step

    I am trying to create a stand-alone app that calculates the sales tax for products input by the user. I'm not sure if I'm supposed to have it in a frame, or what I'm missing to complete the process.
    //Sales Taxes Calculator
     
    package SalesTaxesApp;
     
    import.java.util.Scanner;
    import.java.util.Arrays;
     
    public class SalesTaxApp{
    public static void main(String[] args)
    class tax{
    	int qty=0;
    	String prodName="null";
    	float price="false";
    	boolean imported="false";
    	boolean basic="false";
    	float tax=0.0f;
     
    	void calculateTaxes(){
    		float totalTax=0.0f;
    		if (imported)
    		totalTax=0.05;
    		if (basic)
    		totalTax=0.1;
    		if (imported)&&(basic)
    		totalTax=0.15;
    		tax=price*totalTax;
    	}
    		public String toString(){
    			float p=price+tax;
    			return qty+""+prodName+":"+p;
    		}
    }
    	public class SalesTax{
    		public staic void main(String[] args) throw Exception{
    			SalesTax st=new SalesTax();
    			Scanner input=new Scanner(System.in);
    			ArrayList list= new ArrayList();
    			int no=1;
    			while (true){
    				Tax tax=new Tax();
    				System.out.print("Quantity:")
    				int qty=input.nextInt();
    				tax.qty=qty;
    				System.out.print("Product:");
    				String prod=input.net();
    				tax.prodName=prod;
    				System.out.print("Price:");
    				float p=input.nextFloat();
    				tax.price=p;
    				System.out.print("Product Imported[y/n]:");
    				String imp.=input.next();
    				if (imp.toLowerCase().equals("y"))
    				tax.basic=true;
    				tax.calculateSalesTaxes();
    				list.add(tax);
    				no++;
    				System.out.print("Additional Products[y/n]:");
    				String add=input.next();
    				if(add.toLowerCase().equals("n"))
    				break;
    		}
    				float tp=0.0f;
    				float tt=0.0f;
    				for (int i=o; i<list.size(); i++{
    					Tax tax=list.get(i);
    					tp+=tax.price;
    					tt+=tax.tax;
    					System.out.print(tax);
    				}
    					System.out.println("Sales Tax:"+tt);
    					System.out.println("Total:"+(tt+tp);
    	    }
    }

    If this is an assignment then the instructions will tell you.

    If this is your own pet project you decide if you need a GUI or not.

    fair enough. Am I at least correct with what I have thus far?

    I have no idea. Does it compile? Does it run? Does it display correct output?
