In my mock library you can check for a title to borrow(this works),and return "if" you have a book to return.I can check a string in an object(!"".equals(book1.getTitle())).Cant figure out how to check for title if book is borrowed (borrowed object is book object with getTitle method).
???if (!"".equals(patron1.getBorrowed1()))???Im very newbee-ish,Need something like this,I think,maybe,well...er.Something that workd though.



\\my libraryinterface is a huge newbee(helloworld last fall)mess, Hope I pulled the relevant code.thankyou
ps no error message just incorrect results

You might also like to look at some of the Java collections classes in the java.util.* package, and consider using a List or Set to hold the books.
 
I got this tall by not having enough crisco in my diet as a kid. This ad looks like it had plenty of shortening:
