If you have specific questions about syntax or design, yes, there are a number of people here who will help. If you want source code to complete your assignment, I will be first to be of no help. I suggest you check out The Java Tutorial
Ramaphong: I can't do your assignment for you. That's your responsibility. But, if you get stuck with a specific problem, such as an error message that you don't understand or trouble understanding a specific concept, then I (or others) would be glad to help you out.
