    Default Programming advice

    Hi all I am doing a degree course and want some advice and a few pointers (this is for an assignment so I dont want it done for me but some advice or pointers would be good thanks in advance the brief is below

    A11 Cars currently keep a record of their taxis, drivers and bookings on paper. As a move towards computerising their system they have commissioned you to produce some prototype software for evaluation and possible future development. It should be able to cope with three taxis in the first instance (Taxi1, Taxi2, Taxi3).
    Design, code, test and document a program that will do the following
    • Record whether the taxi is currently in use or not (Destination e.g. ‘Birmingham’ or ‘None’)
    • Record whether the taxi is serviceable or not (Yes/No)
    • Record / Change the driver’s name (if no driver available use ‘None’)

    ************************************************** ************
    An example menu is below
    Welcome to A11 Cars
    1. Change taxi booking state
    2. Change taxi serviceability
    3. Enter/change taxi driver’s name
    4. List all taxi details (Taxi number, Driver, Serviceability, Availability)
    5. Exit

    • The program must be coded using the BlueJ Java system, be well laid out and commented.
    • Extra marks may be awarded for additional functionality and expandability if all the basic requirements are met.

    Perhaps you should tell us what it is you've done, and what it is you wanted help with?
