Recursive power Method - Java

Write a recursive method power( base, exponent ) that, when called, returns


For example, power( 3,4 ) = 3*3*3*3. Assume that exponent is an integer greater than or equal to 1. [Hint: The recursion step should use the relationship

exponent exponent-1
base = base*base

and the terminating condition occurs when exponent is equal to 1, because

base = base

Incorporate this method into a program that enables the user to enter the base and exponent.]
