    Default Exit System

    Hi,
    I have a system that contain switch statement, my problem is with the X choice when the user exits the system, how can I write a code that exits the system while printing a message say: Exiting system.
    Thanks

    here is what I have done:
    Java Code:
    public void select()
    	{	char action = readAction();
    		execute(action);
    		action = readAction();	}
    			
    	private char readAction()
    	{   System.out.print("\tEnter action (A/X): ");
    	    return In.nextLine().toUpperCase().charAt(0);}
    		
    	private void execute(char action)
    	{	switch(action)
    		{case 'A' : add(); break;
                               case 'X' : exit(); break
    		  default: System.out.println("\t\tInvalid action");}}
    private void exit()
    {
    S.o.p("exiting the system");
    
    }
    I don't what else to put in the exit method to exit completely.

    Do you want the message to be printed and displayed and the system to wait until the user has entered a key to exist the system?
