Programing in Java: Fahrenheit to Celsius

I have to write a Java program that converts fahrenheit to celsius.

The formula is: celsius = (5 / 9) * (fahrenheit - 32)

The program read a Fahrenheit degree in double from the input dialog box then converts it to Celsius and displays the result in a message dialog box.

In Java, 5 / 9 is 0, so I need to write 5.0 / 9 to obtain the correct result.

The program should also convert feet into meters. The program prompts the user to enter a number in feet, converts it to meters, and displays the result. One foot is 0.305 meters.
