    Default Creating a virtual library

    Hey guys, I was wondering what the steps are to making a virtual library (what to use, for what features). I changed my mind on asking for the entire program so I can actually learn from this and not just leach off other people. I'm just searching for advice for what belongs where (for example book titles ==> make string in array). This is my previous post, it will surely make you understand better:

    Hey I told my sister I would do this for her (also related to a java project in class) but frankly I'm not too experienced in java and my teacher is really bad. Whenever you ask for help, he will simply say you have not listened in class and gives you a detention although he just writes code shows it to us, and makes us copy it back on the computer. No exercises in class whatsoever, no explanations. It's like I'm still at square one.
    Anyways I'm planning to buy java for dummies and go to a java class outside school but for now I have a deadline and the book won't be enough, and classes are costly .
    I don't have much time to complete this because my teacher wants me to finish it in a couple of days without his help. My friends have already found theirs on the internet. Many people would say we're slacking but please trust me when I tell you we aren't. I had a private server 2 years ago and I loved "coding", I even went sponsored on rune-server. But this class just gave me complete disgust and inability to do so.

    This is my plan for the program that I'm attempting to make (a virtual library to keep track of books, adding books, deleting etc.):

    • Registering a book to the library (If the user must add a book, he will have to register the book by its title, author, and school subject; the program will automatically add a number to that book, in order to account for duplicates. The number will start at 1 and will increase every time another copy of the same book is added to the library.)
    • Removing a book from the library (This feature may be useful if one book has been lost or cannot be returned. It may also serve a purpose if a book is no longer needed for class and needs to be sold or given away.)
    • Editing a book’s details (This is useful if there was a typo in entering the details of a book while adding it.)
    • Borrowing a book (If the user must borrow a book, he will select the book he would like to borrow, his name, and the date. If a book is already being borrowed, the program will automatically indicate it when someone tries searching for it.)
    • Returning a book (If the user wants to return a book, he will simply have to enter his name and the name of the book, and the program will remove any previous signs of it being gone from the library.)

    To sum up, the program will be recording the intakes and returns of the books all the while holding accountable anybody who did not return their book on time.

    I'm really hoping you guys could help me in anyway possible because I know it is very easy for some of you but most importantly I remember how nice, giving, and returning this community is (NOT TRYING TO BE CHEESY).
    Thank's alot, really.

    Default Re: Creating a virtual library

    Your post appears to us as "Here's my assignment, do it for me". If that is not your intent then you need to:

    Attempt to write the code yourself
    When you get stuck post your code and full error messages
    Ask a specific question

    To tell you the truth, that is what I am passing on. I don't think you understand we didn't learn a single thing, and the frustration I have because of this teacher. I have a deadline and could not possibly do it myself by then. :S
