I just wanted to make sure I have the requirements right for OOP-4. What I read is that:
Someone enters a serial number at the console, and it returns information about the item.
I have two questions:
A) Do we show a list of serial numbers, or just a prompt asking for a serial number and assume that the "user" will know serial numbers to put in?
B) How much detail are we needing for each item? For example, books should show author, publisher, length of tape, date published?
Thanks!
Jason

Just prompt for the serial number.

You can make up whatever you want, I used title, author, quantity and price.
Hope this helps.

usage: java Lookup aSerialNumber
prints out a description of the item which can include whatever you feel describes the item (within reason).

Just curious, if we add something to our code before we get the first nitpick back, should we send in the entire code again, just the stuff we added (in this case, a try/catch block in the main method), or wait until we get a response?
Thanks!

You can send it in again with a note in the subject line
**New Version** (or something similar) to flag me so I don't waste time looking at the other one.
