Help required in designing a Java application

I am seeking the help for the best Java design that I should use for a particular scenario described below.

1) A button press generates a String Array that contains 'n' strings.

2) I need to check whether this 'Generated Array' contains a pre-defined string(out of 'n' pre-defined strings).

3) If the 'Generated Array' contains any of the pre-defined strings, I need to take an action.

What is the best way of designing this application/ How should I model the classes?

Following is the raw thought I have

1) Main class which handles the Array Generation on Button press
2) A dedicated class for pre-defined strings in which I define 10, 100 , 1000 or more pre-defined strings alone?
3) A dedicated class to handle the actions, if match occurs between 'Generated Array' strings and pre-defined string?

Is this the correct model? Are there any other better design than this?


Best suggestions and guiding is much appreciated

When you say "a button press", that implies a graphical user interface (GUI).
Did you really mean that?

If so, which GUI framework will you be using?  Swing?

How familiar are you with event driven application development?

I don't understand this part - you create random strings? Otherwise this reads like a simple array declaration to me.
i.e., String[] arr = new String[n];

How do you populate your array, where are the string values coming from?

>> 1) Main class which handles the Array Generation on Button press
Agree. And that also triggers the action to be taken in case of a match [3)]

>> 2) A dedicated class for pre-defined strings in which I define 10, 100 , 1000 or more pre-defined strings alone?
Agree. And that also contains a method that takes an array of strings as a parameter and returns a boolean telling you if the passed Array contains any of the pre-defined strings.

>> 3) A dedicated class to handle the actions, if match occurs between 'Generated Array' strings and pre-defined string?
Can be a dedicated class. But can also be a method defined in your main class. Depending on how complex the action to be taken is

Use Abstract class and Interface

Abstract class you define the method and generate Array Using Interfact Reference you get the arrat

Use Swing Button When Action Perform method you would call the Interface and abstract class

Or JSP UseBean you callt the abstract class or Intrface
