This week's giveaway is in the EJB and other Java EE Technologies forum. We're giving away four copies of EJB 3 in Action and have Debu Panda, Reza Rahman, Ryan Cuprak, and Michael Remijan on-line! See this thread for details.
Hey guys. I bought a book the other day on Java because I wanted to try it out and I have been losing sleep over it now. While I always thought it would be boring, I find its like I am practically playing sudoku :P
I am writing a simple program to give me a roofing quote based on the information that I plug in. With the scanner utility I just assign values to variables such as "roof square footage" and "amount of bundles". Anyways I am done most of it except for the part where I must select the shingle type.
Currently I am fooling around with the next.Boolean to assign a true/false when the console prompts "Timberline?" (My first shingle choice). IF Timberline=False then it goes to the next line
"3 Tab?".. and finally if that is false then the next line with a println displaying "Designer Shingle Price Assumed".
However it is not working how I would have hoped, so is there a way that I can make a text selection?
-Console prompts: "Select Shingle Type (Timberline, 3 Tab, Designer):"
-Type in shingle type, press enter, and it assigns a value to the variable "shingleprice" based on selection.
If I took a screenshot of my code and posted it, would it help?

1. It's way too small for my old eyes.
2. It doesn't appear to include all your code.
Have a look at the UseCodeTags page (←click), and post your code inside them. And please read the page carefully, because very long lines cause problems.
Use the 'Preview' button to check what you've done before you post.

You can’t read screenshots; Winston has already told you what to do so as to ensure we can read your code.
Are you really using that dreadful construct ==false? You will find it discussed in this thread.

Thanks both of you. I will have to do that in the morni... *yawn* ... In the after sleep and make another post.
Amazing how much I've learned just from lurking previous posts so I might not have to anyways
