If you have to pass some arguments to launch your application you can use this syntax java NameOfYourApplication arg1 arg2 arg3 ... You may acces those arguments within your main method (public static void main (Stringargs) where args represents the arguments the user have entered So you may do something like that if (args==...) I hope it helps!
By constantly trying one ends up succeeding. Thus: the more one fails the more one has a chance to succeed.
To prompt users and get input in a String : String name = JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Enter name " );

Abdul, It sounds like you'll want to implement Pradyumna's example above, adding to it some logic testing the validity of the initial input, then reusing Pradyumna's example if the input was accepted. If you were to post an example of what you've figured out so far, then others could best help you out. Good Luck.
