Hi guys: Can any one please help me how to i do the changes in my program according to the following 4 changes.

1) Create a Date type birth data instance field in the Employee class, not a String

2) Enlarge the constructors for the Employee class and subclasses to pass the int month, int day, and int year of the birth date as input by the user to PayrollSystemTest

to the subclass constructor, and then to the Employee class constructor

3) Input from the user for the 5 specific employees and then comment out the hardcoding for the 4 employees in the original code

4) Report monthly salary amounts and include the November birthday bonus

Make an effort and then come back when you run into problems.

You cannot pass data to a subclass anything. What it means is you are extending the class, and in the extended class (the subclass) you take day month year as parameters. In fact I think it would be better to put the date fields in the superclass (all Employess have a date of birth) and use
super(day, month, year, name, etc); in the subclass constructor.
