    Question File handling in a GUI!

    Hi Everyone,

    I created a GUI using Java with Buttons, Pictures and labels.
    When one of the buttons is pressed it increases the price, which can be seen by the labels increasing the necessary amount.

    What I would like to be able to do in my GUI is allow the user to record details of the sale and be able to display the sales of past customers to date, by this I mean when I click one of the buttons it will record the amount of that item into a file and when I press the another button, not the same button as the items, it will show the user the existing orders that have been taken in the past.

    Here is my Code:

     
    //Importing needed classes
    import java.awt.*;
    import javax.swing.*;
    import java.awt.event.*;
     
    //The Main Class
    public class CoffeeShop extends JFrame
    {
    	//Initialising the Buttons and Labels
    	private JLabel instruction1;
    	private JLabel instruction2;
    	private JLabel instruction3;
    	private JLabel label;
    	private JLabel label1;
    	private JLabel label2;
      	private JLabel label3;
      	private JLabel label4;
      	private JLabel label5;
      	private JButton button;
    	private JButton button1;
    	private JButton button2;
      	private JButton button3;
      	private JButton button4;
      	private JButton button5;
     
    	//Initialising the Result Labels
      	private JLabel resultLabel;
      	private JLabel resultLabel1;
      	private JLabel resultLabel2;
      	private JLabel resultLabel3;
      	private JLabel resultLabel4;

       	private double fanta;
     
    	//Initialising Images of Items
      	private ImageIcon coffee1;

    	//Initialising the Screen Width and Length
    	private static final int FRAME_WIDTH = 780;
    	private static final int FRAME_HEIGHT = 400;
     
    	//Initialising the Initial cost and Interest Rates of the items on sale
