    Video store program - persisting problems. Any advice !!


    I'm currently trying to write a basic video store management program. I have already written a number of classes to help do this job, but I'm having a few doubts about my Video class.

    Basically, will the following code allow me to access the information about video titles, stored in a seperate class called 'Title', and will the constructor 'Video' correctly read data from a text file for the other required information.

    I know these questions may seem a bit simple, but I'm getting really lost with this program.

    Code so far is as follows;

    package videos;
    import simplejava.*;
    public class Video {
        private int days, referenceNumber;
        private static double dailyPrice;
        private double totalPrice;
        private Title title;
        public boolean available;
        public Video(int refNum, int d, double dp) {
            referenceNumber = refNum;
            days = d;
            dailyPrice = dp;
            this.title = title;
        public Video(SimpleReader in) {
            this(in.readInt(), in.readInt(), in.readDouble()); 
        public int getReferenceNumber() {
            return referenceNumber;
        public int getDays() {
            return days;
        public void setDays(int d) {
            days = d;
        public double getDailyPrice() {
            return dailyPrice;
        public void setDailyPrice(double dp) {
            dailyPrice = dp;
        public void getTotalPrice() {
            totalPrice = days*dailyPrice;
        public boolean isAvailable() {
            if (available)
                return true;
                return false;
        public String toString() {
            return referenceNumber + "" + title + "" + totalPrice + available;
    Any help or advice really appreciated!!
