I'm trying to do the following using java language.

The user is to enter some item description. (item code, item weight, item unit price). When the user has finished, he is to enter an item code and the system must retrive the contents of the code if it was entered before. i managed to do all this stuff however I'm finding some problems regarding the user entering a code which is not found in the system.

As shown in the code here under I'm using an array list to store my objects in it. When I'm iterating through the array list and getting the information back, to display the code I'm getting funny results. When the user enters a code which is found in the system,the program is still outputing that no such code exists. Is there a way to by pass this problem please
