Hi experts!

I am writing a simple code to calculate phone bill in which clients get discounts (10% each for senior citizeins (over 60) and another 10% for subcribers of 3 years or longer).

What I would like to get your help with are:

1. To put a title

2. To make if statements (toward the end of the code) work properly.

I've never used that many multiple if statements and they are a little overwhelming for me. I hope that there is a better, simple way to do the job.

Hope you experts may help me again.

Thanks a lot!

You can rationalize somewhat by using

switch(age) {
    case: 1
        // do something
        break;
    case: 2
        // do something else
        break;
}

But sometimes you just get into this situation. After simplifying the logic as much as possible, often a rules tree is used in these situations.

CEHJ, thank you so much for your kind, prompt response.

May I use nested switch?  Thanks!

for example:

switch (age)
{
case  1:
       switch  (plan)
       {
          case 1:
             switch (length)
                 {
                    case 1: if (mins_used <= 300 )
                      {
                            total = (length > 3) ? LENGTH_DISCOUNT *39.99f : 39.99f;
                            Ftotal.setText (""+total);
                      }

> May I use nested switch?  Thanks!

switch is just a glorified if statement :) And doesn't really help much forthis type of p[roblem

you're overcompicating the problem, calculate the total based on the plan, anmd then apply any discounts applicable

total = getTotal(plan, mins_used);
if (age==0) total *= SENIOR_DISCOUNT;
if (length>3) total += LENGTH_DISCOUNT;

getTotal would look something like:


public double getTotal(int plan, int mins_used)
{
   double total = 69.99;
   if (plan==0) {
      total = 39.99;
      mins_used -= 300;
      if (mins_used>) {
         total += (mins_used * 0.45);
      }
   }
   return total;
}

objects, thank you so much for your kind, prompt response.

I will take time to try your tip and will come back to you with feedback.

I 've got to leave now for some workout (after spending all day with Java code) :)


Thanks again!

TO: objects:

Hi again, I read your tips over and again.

I just wonder how I may use your code where I want to use: private class ButtonListener implements ActionListener
 {
   public void actionPerformed ( ActionEvent e )
   {

I am not sure how I may use parameters in a ActionPerformed method in Java Swing.

Thanks again!

same way u are already

   public void actionPerformed ( ActionEvent e )
   {
       ...
       double total = getTotal(plan, mins_used);
       if (age==0) total *= SENIOR_DISCOUNT;
       if (length>3) total += LENGTH_DISCOUNT;
       ...
