    Default Help with inheritance/hierarchy

    I was wondering if anyone knew how to write this code? Im confused on how to start...
    Open a text file (copied into your project main folder) for reading. Get the name
    of the text file from args[0]. As always, make sure that args[0] is present and print an
    appropriate message otherwise.
    Create an ArrayList<Employee> to hold the employees.
    Read in each line of the file which should be in the following format:
    <name> <type> <hours> <wage> <salary>

    Which part of this are you having trouble with? What do you have so far?

    Break the problem up into smaller steps, and do the steps one at a time. What's the next thing you know you have to do? (do you have a main method yet? How do you test that args[0] is present?)

    I have created the other classes of this project, but Im confused on how im supposed to create an array list from the text that i put in my text file? i have this so far but i dont think its correct

    package prog5;

    import java.util.ArrayList;

    public class Prog5 {

    public static void main(String[] args) {

    //Open text file for reading

    if (args.length != 1) {
    System.out.println("Must specify file on the command line");

    try {
    FileInputStream fStream = new FileInputStream(args[0]);
    try (BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(fStream))) {
    while (in.ready()) {
    } catch (IOException e) {
    System.out.println("File input error");

    //Create ArrayList

    ArrayList Employee = new ArrayList();
