    Default phone billing system task help


    i have a task to do and im very stressed about it. obviously i do not expect anyone to do my work for me but anyone give me a kick in the right direction of how to plan/ get started?

    this is my task: Implement a phone billing system for a phone company. You must choose a name for
    the phone company and this name should be displayed on screen. The system should be
    able to record all calls made by a customer by recording such information as numbers
    called and the date and length of these calls. Bills should be produced for the customer
    based on the calls made and the cost per minute of the calls. It should be possible to
    search the list of calls to find, for example, the calls made to a particular number.

    so il have a class which contains a list and allows for new calls to be added, removed, and for the file to be searched.

    another class which will call name of caller, number of caller, and set the recipent number, length of call, date, and price.

    im very confused about what to do and have basic java skills so any help is much appreciated!

    Do you have a design for the program? Can you list the steps it must take to solve the problem?
    You need a design for a program before you can write it.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
