Andries. Welcome to Javaranch.
I am sorry but unfortunately your question is not regarding the SCJD certification.
This forum is for questions on the SCJD assignment.
On another note, it appears that your question is taken from your own schoolwork. We really like helping people out here at Javaranch, but we can't do your homework for you.
If you like you can post some of your own code to see if you are on the right track and we can help you that way.
I think you will want to post your question in the Java Beginner forum.
But realize that if you ask for someone else to do your work, you won't get much, if any, of a response.
Thanks, and I am going to close this thread.
Good Luck, and we definitely want to help you learn Java, so that you can look at your assignment and say. "What an easy task"
Oh, and your title/topic for this thread "Help" doesn't really tell the other ranch memebers what type of question you are asking, and tends to find little responses too.
Please, don't think I am mad or anything, I just want to help you out, and get better responses in the future for your posts.
