Hello,

I am new to Eclipse and I have to create a program that asks the user how old they are, and then computes and displays the user's age in dog years. The formula is: Age in dog years = person's actual age * 7

I am using the book Alice in Action with Java and it's programming project 7.2. This is my first time ever doing Java and I am totally lost. I was able to get the project started in Eclipse, so I made it that far at least. And unfortunately, this is due tomorrow night. Ive been looking at the tutorials and what not but it's not of any help with what I need to do to create this. It reminds me of my HTML class I had before and it was a nightmare. Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you!!

I don't know anything about Eclipse, but I've been programming in java using Netbeans for a couple of months now and if it's just a coding problem you're having, that's a program I could write in my sleep (as I'm sure is true of most people on this site). Is your problem one where you're not sure how to use the IDE or one where you're not sure how the coding is supposed to work? Have you been able to get any other programs to work in eclipse?

I don't really understand the coding. The book has an example of a program made in Eclipse but it's not really giving me all the tips I need to do the coding for this. This is my first time ever using this program. I've put in some code but I don't know what all I need to make this actually work.
