    Default PLEASE Help with developing a class with an overloaded method

    Listed below is the whole problem I am working on. I have completed my Customer Class and now I am having trouble with my CustomerTest class. I am not sure if I declared my phone number variable correctly.

    In this task, you write a Customer class with an overloaded method called
    setCustomerInfo.
    Create a class called Customer and save the file as Customer.java Within the Customer class, add two overloaded methods called setCustomerInfo.
    Depending on how the setCustomerInfo method is called, it does
    one of the following:
    ● Sets the ID, name, address, and phone number for a Customer
    object. (This is the minimum information needed for a new
    Customer.)
    ● Sets the ID, name, address, phone number, and email address
    for a Customer object.
    Create a display method to display the values of all the member
    variables of the Customer class.

    This is what I am having major trouble on. I am not sure how to create two object references.

    7. In the main method of CustomerTest class write code to perform the
    following tasks:
    a. Create two object references to different Customer objects.
    b. Use each variation of the setCustomerInfo method to provide
    information for each Customer object.
    c. Display the contents of each Customer object.

    My code is attached below.. I appreciate any help I am stuck and I think I am almost done. .

    Default Re: PLEASE Help with developing a class with an overloaded method

    Ok so I have figured out my CustomerTest a little bit. I also changed my phone number to a string. The only problem I am having now is that it is pulling the email in the first setCustomerInfo when it shouldn't be.
    One should display
    public void setCustomerInfo(int ID, String name, String address, String number){
    And the other should display:
    public void setCustomerInfo(int ID, String name, String address, String number, String email){
    But it is displaying the same thing for both, Here is my CustomerTest Code:
    public class CustomerTest {
     
    	public static void main (String args[]) {
     
    		/* Need to create two object references to different Customer objects.
    		   Use each variable of the setCustomerInfo method to provide information for each Customer Ojbect.
    		   Display the contents of each Customer ojbect
    		*/
    		Customer c1 = new Customer();//first objct reference
    		Customer c2 = new Customer();//second object reeference
    		c1.setCustomerInfo(1, "Peter", "5 Independence Way", "609-628-3327");//using each variable and displaying
    		c2.setCustomerInfo(2, "Nancy", "38 Washington Road", "301-325-4738", "nancy@yahoo.com");//using each variable and displaying
    		c1.display();
    		c2.display();
     
    	}
    }
