    Default Super Market Application

    I have learned the basic of threading through various resources and now I want to implement a basic supermarket application. The features which I am looking in that application are :-

    1. Billing counters where customer will do there checkout.
    2. Number of items in each customer's in trolley must be different.
    3. To trace weather more checkout are required or not.
    4. Calculate billing time, wait time etc.

    I am not sure how to start this using thread. If any one can suggest the steps how to proceed with development that will be very helpful. I am planning to use java AWT from UI prospective.

    For simplicity I would recommend you start without using Threads else you may get tied up in a mess. Also AWT is way behind the times so if you're looking to learn something currently useful I'd recommend JavaFX instead.

    What have you got so far? Where are you stuck?

    I am planning to implement this using thread only and JavaFX seems good options. But the situation where I am currently stuck is how I cam implement this like what needs to be done first. If any sequence of task are known to me i can start developing those.

    Currently from thread coding point of view I am not sure how to start this. If some one any suggest any border idea about this, I am sure i can code it. The UI is not major concern for me but the thing which is creating trouble for me is how to implement functionality,

    I hop you have got my concern.

    I would start with building a single "billing counter" (I'd call that a Till) and decide on how you want that to operate. How will you enter each item? Do you need to keep a record of the Stock? How will you know the price for each item? How will you add new Stock Items? What other things do you think you would need to consider?

    Notice I'm saying nothing about threads yet, just start with normal Java programming. Before you start using threads you'd need to understand what problem you're trying to solve with threads first. Make sense?
