## Could someone help me to solve this problem...

Hi all,

As you can all see I am new in Java. I have a task which needs to be completed by Friday. Could someone help me please to solve this problem and have a solution as well.

This is only for my gain to learn Java, and does not envolve any academic gains at all.

Your help is masivele appreciated!!!

========= Domain problem scenario ===========

Task: Given input file A, translate the content to produce output file B

File A: Consists of multiple lines of data whereby each line is of form
X;1.9,2;3,4.3; 5,6

Output file B, should consists of one line per shape and should be formatted as follows.
Shape[TRIANGLE], Points[[[3.0,3.0], [5.0, 8.0], [8.0,4.0]]], Area[9.0]

This should be supporting 4 shape types: Circle, Square, Triangle, Rectangle.

This should demonstrate OO principle and use Factory design patten and Unit tests.

Note: Input File A has these cartisean coordinates which have to be read;

t: 3,3; 5,8; 7,4
s:-1,-6; -1,-3; 2, -3; -2, -6
c: -4, -3; -2,-1
r:-1,1;4,1; -5; -1,-5

2. Regardless if this is for academic gain or not, you will gain more by doing as much as possible yourself and then asking us as specific a question as possible. On that note, please post your best attempt at a solution, and let's work from there. Best of luck.
