    Am not an expert in the forum but I interpret it means having a main program as well as other methods which can be called within the main, thereby linking the entire program.

    I only do soley java programs in my course and I use the assigned text to that, seem like you are doing gui which we haven't started yet. You can probably refer to your textbook or youtube tutorials which works for me sometimes in order to better understand somethings. Sry, can't assist with gui but one of the moderators in the forum shall see your post soon and give you the right assistance. All the best though.

    The best thing to do would be to ask your teacher.

    But I would guess that Java girl is right. Instead of having a bunch of standalone programs, you should wrap each program up into its own method and then write a program that calls those methods. That way you can make, for example, a GUI that runs a different program when you press different buttons.

    Your teacher might mean something else though, so I suggest asking him.
