    I need a complete Java code for the following beginner-level assignment. The code does not have to be pretty as long as it works... So here's the assignment:

    You run a small library. Ask the user to provide information for several books. The information must include the author, title and publisher of each book. Create a book class which stores the information and implements the following methods:

    getAuthor() (returns author's name)

    getTitle() (returns the title)

    getPublisher() (returns the publisher of the book)

    Finally print all the stored information to the user.

    Tip 1: Remember the constructor.
    Tip 2: You can use an arraylist.

    This is how it should look like:

    Do you want to input a new book (y/n)?



    Jacob Smith

    Book title:

    Investment Banking


    Oxford Press

    Do you want to input a new book (y/n)?



    Mary Dickins

    Book title:

    Advanced Econometrics


    London Publishing House

    Do you want to input a new book (y/n)?


    The library contains:

    2 books


    Jacob Smith, Investment Banking, Oxford Press

    Mary Dickins, Advanced Econometrics, London Publishing House

    This assignment may be accomplished with little coding and I will walk you through it. Always remember there is more than one way to accomplish something in Java. This sounds like a console application so I will keep it limited to the console, examples are listed here and included in a text file.

    Imports in Java allow your application to use classes form the Java standard library. In this application you need to use a Scanner so your application may collect user input. this is done by using:

    import java.util.*;

    Thinking of the Book class, the properties needed are author, title, and publisher. The constructor of the class will help to declare and initialize these properties.

    public class Book{

    String Author;
    String Title;
    String Publisher;

    public Book(String author, String title,String publisher)

    Author = author;
    Title = title;
    Publisher = publisher;

    public String toString()
    return this.Author+" ,"+ this.Title+" ...

    Solution Summary

    This lesson will explain how to create a console application in java that uses the scanner class, array list, anonymous class, and an enhanced for loop to iterate through the array list.
