    Default Help with Assignment work

    Hello, this is my second post on the forms but I need some help with something that is just stumping me.

    I have an assignment to complete where I have to develop a Java Console application in Eclipse which accepts regional zone information for premises based upon addresses provided. The program needs to figure out which geographical zone each customer lives in and based upon their age, set a priority rating.

    The zones (which is the Belfast and the directions) and sub-zones (which are the Postcode such as "BT1" are:

    Zones
    BELFAST
    "BT1 ", "BT2 ", "BT3 ", "BT4 ", "BT5 ", "BT6 ", "BT7 ", "BT8 ", "BT9 ", "BT10", "BT11", "BT12", "BT13", "BT14", "BT15"
    NORTH
    "BT39", "BT40", "BT41", "BT42", "BT43", "BT44", "BT45", "BT46", "BT51", "BT52", "BT53", "BT54", "BT55", "BT56", "BT57"
    SOUTH
    "BT25", "BT26", "BT32", "BT35", "BT60", "BT61", "BT62", "BT63", "BT64", "BT65", "BT66", "BT67", "BT68", "BT69", "BT70", "BT71", "BT80"
    EAST
    "BT16", "BT17", "BT18", "BT19", "BT20", "BT21", "BT22", "BT23", "BT24", "BT27", "BT28", "BT29", "BT30", "BT31", "BT33", "BT34", "BT36", "BT37", "BT38"
    WEST
    "BT47", "BT48", "BT49", "BT74", "BT75", "BT76", "BT77", "BT78", "BT79", "BT81", "BT82", "BT92", "BT93", "BT94"
    UNALLOCATED
    No Postcode provided


    What I specifically need to do is
    1. Display a count of addresses within a user defined geographical zone.
    2. Display all information for customers within a user defined geographical zone.
    3. Display a complete set of captured data.
    4. Display a prioritized list of customer details within each geographical zone.
    5. Display a count of customers within each geographical zone.

    Below is the code I have created so far for it.

    package assignment1;
     
    import java.io.BufferedReader;
    import java.io.InputStreamReader;
     
    public class Assignment1 {

    		static String[][] aryCustomers = new String[1][6];
     
    	/**
    	 * @param args
    	 */
    		//Main Method
    	public static void main(String[] args)
    	{
    	    MainMenu();
    	}
     
    	// Display user menu.
    	private static void MainMenu()
    	{
     
    	//Variables
    		int intMenuChoice = 0;
    		do
    		{
    			try
    			{
    				//Display Menu
    				//this will display the menu allowing the user to select a number between 1 and 5 to continue

    			int rows = temp.length - 1;
    			int loop = 0;
     
    			while (loop < rows) {
    				temp[loop][0] = (array[loop][0]);
    				temp[loop][1] = (array[loop][1]);
    				temp[loop][2] = (array[loop][2]);
    				temp[loop][3] = (array[loop][3]);
    				temp[loop][4] = (array[loop][4]);
    				temp[loop][5] = (array[loop][5]);
    				loop++;
    			}
     
    			temp[rows][0] = "*";
    			temp[rows][1] = "*";
    			temp[rows][2] = "*";
    			temp[rows][3] = "*";
    			temp[rows][4] = "*";
    			temp[rows][5] = "*";
     
    			return temp;
     
     
     
    	}
     
    }


    Putting it straight out there, I do not want a full blown answer, as that is against site rules and I am not one to cheat in my work. However, the main issue I'm having is to make sure that data like address and customer counts, and customer details appear only for the selected areas. If anyone could lend some input, that would be great.

    Default Re: Help with Assignment work

    This includes the same code you posted earlier when it was framed as an Eclipse problem. It's okay to start a new thread and now focus on fixing the code's functionality, but this code still has the errors you were already told to fix when you first posted the code, plus new errors. Why are you posting buggy code? Why aren't you fixing the errors that should be obvious to you, especially those you've already been told about? If you're not going to 'listen,' take advice, and do as we suggest, then there's really no point in trying to help you.
