    Default Help with Java Programming Assignment Please?

    I have a java assignment due for college (I'm doing 2nd year multimedia programming) in a few weeks and I’m really struggling and don’t have a clue what to do.

    The following is the first part of the assignment. I have to implement a Java application that demonstrates the use of file input/output and exception handling. my application should allow the user to enter data about some entity that is stored in a data file. My application should be able to read data from a data file, and to store that data in a set of objects.

    The following is what I have already. A lot of it is probably wrong, and I don't know what to do next.

    package books;
    import java.io.File;
    import java.io.FileNotFoundException;
    import java.io.FileReader;
    import java.io.PrintWriter;
    import java.util.Scanner;
    public class BookTest {
        public static void main(String[] args) 
                throws FileNotFoundException
            File f = new File (input.txt);
            if ();
                FileReader = new FileReader();
           /* BufferedReader = new BufferedReader();
            PrintWriter pw = new PrintWriter(File);*/
            //Prompts the user for the input and output file names
           /* Scanner console = new Scanner(System.in);
            System.out.print("Input file: ");
            String inputFileName = console.next();
            System.out.print("Output file: ");
            String outputFileName = console.next();
            //Prompts the Scanner and PrintWriter objects for reading and writing
            File inputFile = new File(inputFileName);
            Scanner in = new Scanner(inputFile);      
            PrintWriter out = new PrintWriter(outputFileName);
            int lineNumber = 1;
            /*  while (in.hasNextLine());
                String line = in.nextLine();
                out.println("/* " + lineNumber + " * " + line);
            out.close();   */
    package books;
    public class Books {
        private String title;
        private String authorFName;
        private String authorLName;
        private double price;    

    I would really appreciate it if anyone could help me please. Thank you.

    Please post the code you have here on the forum and ask questions about the problems you are having.
    Don't expect us to follow links to the assignment or your code.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
