    Default Java Assignment Question

    I have an assignment for class. I am a going for a degree in networking, but for some reason they require us to take a Java programming class and they really let you have it. This is only the 2nd week and we are supposed to write, what seems like, a difficult program. I'm sure to the more experienced programmer that this isn't a big deal at all and is actually quite simple. But, even after reading all the material for the week (which ended up being close to 100 pages) and watching tutorial videos, I feel that I am even more lost. I was wondering if anyone could help me at all with this, and it would be GREATLY appreciated.

    Write a Java application using NetBeans Integrated Development Environment (IDE) that calculates the total annual compensation of a salesperson. Consider the following factors:

    A salesperson will earn a fixed monthly salary of $4,000.00.
    A salesperson will also receive a commission as a sales incentive. Commission is a percentage of the salespersonís annual sales. The current commission is 20% of total sales.
    The total annual compensation is the fixed salary plus the commission earned.

    The Java application should meet these technical requirements:

    The application should have at least one class, in addition to the applicationís controlling class (a controlling class is where the main function resides).
    There should be proper documentation is the source code.
    The application should ask the user to enter annual sales, and it should display the total annual compensation.
