What algorithm would you use to compute quartely totals.

Quarters(1Oct - 31 Dec. ;1 Jan - 31Mar; 1 Apr - 30 Jun.)

For example: compute the days idle in the first quarter(1Oct - 31Dec.)

The user will only enter month and year.

Thanks.

Welcome to JavaRanch!

I'm sorry I don't understand your question. The user enters a month and year, and then...?

In one of your duplicate threads, you offered a little more information...

...I will check to see what quarter the entered month and year falls into. If the month and year falls in the first quarter(1 Oct-31 Dec.) pull all the idle days values out of the database for that quarter...


But what is your question? I don't know whether you're asking how to tell which quarter a date falls into, or whether you're asking about database connectivity.

It would be helpful in solving a problem if you could come up with a rough solution, and then narrow down your doubts to a particular module. Just a suggestion.

Start as small as you can manage. Isolate this little part of your program into a new class called Quarter - maybe temporarily, maybe forever. Can you make this work? Put it in the main() of a throw-away test class. Let's give it a month (0-11 like Date) and ask what quarter it's in (0-3)

Show us what you make for that!
