    Default Java 169 Error: One of my variable haven't been initialized + 3 other questions

    Hi there,

    I'm doing a Password Storage Application for my project and this is what I have to do:

    Password Storage Application

    • The id/password pairs along with a description are to be stored in an encrypted file.
    • Access to the file is controlled with a master password which is set on first use and can later be changed.
    • The user can add, remove (and modify) all the stored id/password pairs and descriptions.


    This is my code.

    Java Code:
    import javax.swing.JOptionPane;        //this allows me to use display dialogs
    import java.util.Arrays;               //this allows me to use the sort method later on
    import java.io.*;                      //this allows me to use commands related to reading and writing data
    
    public class ohpassword {
    	
        
        //MAIN PROGRAM START DECLARING AN IO EXCEPTION CAN BE THROWN(USED IN THE READ AND WRITE SECTIONS)

    This is the error that I get:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Xinox Software\JCreatorV4\Module - Java\ohpassword.java:169: error: variable welcome_prompt_int might not have been initialized

    I'm using JCreator.

    Also, here are my 2 other questions:

    How do I set a master password and set it within the program and later change it?
    How do I set a delete entry within my menu?

    I will get back to you during the late evening tonight.

    Thank you for your help

    You do realise that 1000+ lines of code is waaaay more than most people on a forum will bother to look at?

    Anyway, that error says that you are attempting to read the welcome_prompt_int variable before you have given it a value.

    You really need to break that code up into methods as well, since the lack of them makes it hard to follow (never mind the sheer length of that code).
    Any method > about 40 lines probably ought to be broken up. Each user action should be a method. Setting up the data should be a method. That sort of thing. That way you can focus on the method doing a thing, rather than trying to pick that functionality out from a sea of other stuff.
    Please do not ask for code as refusal often offends.

    Apologies for the long code, it's just that I haven't really gone that deep into Java to know how to create methods.

    If I knew how to do it, I would've separated them for the forum.

    Thanks for the advise, I'll look into it then come back to this thread.

    Hi giga, you just need to initialize welcome_prompt_int =0; in the top of the code and the program will run. And as Tolls told you, try to separte your code and methods and even classes, thats what makes Java so cool, OOP and read a little bit about Refactoring.

    Hi there,

    I've edited my code into different sections now, hopefully it has made it more simple. The only thing I didn't add is my master password which I still need...

    Java Code:
    import javax.swing.JOptionPane;
    import javax.swing.JTextArea;
     
    public class StorageApp {
    	
    	private StorageAppEntry entry[];
        private int counter;
        private String SName;
        private int notfound = 0;
        
        public static void main(String[] args) {
        	
        StorageApp a = new StorageApp();
            a.entry = new StorageAppEntry[100];
            int option = 0;
            try {
                while (option != 5) {
                	
                	String content = "Choose an Option\n\n"
                            + "[1] Add an Entry\n"
                            + "[2] Delete an Entry\n"
                            + "[3] Update an Entry\n"
                            + "[4] View all Entries\n"
                            + "[5] View Specific Entry\n"
                            + "[6] Exit";
                            
                            option = Integer.parseInt(JOptionPane.showInputDialog(content));
                    switch (option) {
                        case 1:
                            a.addEntry();
