    Default Creating a Gun in Java, I'm completely lost.

    Hi all, I'm a student currently learning Java and I have an assignment I am extremely stuck with. We haven't done much programming before so I'm finding it tough but I have to provide the code for a Gun. Here is what I have so far:

            int currentChamber;
            boolean [] chamberArray;
            public Gun()
                chamberArray[0] = false;
                chamberArray[1] = false;
                chamberArray[2] = false;
                chamberArray[3] = false;
                chamberArray[4] = false;
            void RotateCylinder()   
            void InsertBullet()

    I'm struggling to get ANYTHING working for the two methods. Can anyone please help?

    You don't even specify what those methods are supposed to do. Write out a detailed summary of each method and what they're supposed to do, and you'll have a nice starting point.

    I recommend you read the link on asking smart questions from my signature, and this: Starting Writing a Program
