    Question Card Game

    Hi I am trying to make a Card game where there are 2 inputs and it decides who is the winner.. But what I am having problem with is taking an input as A or J or Q or K and assigning their respective values i.e. 14, 11,1 2, 13.. If anybody could help it would be great.

    Java Code:
    package cardGame;
    import javax.swing.*;
    public class cardGame {	
    	public static void main (String args[]){
    		int card1;
    		int card2;
    		String input;
    		input = JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Enter first Card: ");
    		card1 = Integer.parseInt(input);
    		input = JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Enter second Card: ");
    		card2 = Integer.parseInt(input);
    		if (card1 == card2){ //Checks if 2 cards are equal
    			JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, "It's a Tie");
    		double large;
    		large = Math.max(card1,card2);
    		if (card1 == large){//Checks the winner
    			JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, "First Player Wins");		
    		} else if (card2 == large){
    			JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, "Second Player Wins");

    an input as A or J or Q or K and assigning their respective values i.e. 14, 11,12, 13.
    One way is to have a String: "JQKA" and use the indexOf method.
    If the returned value is > -1, add 11 to it. 11 being the value of for the first char: "J"
