Question description

1. A class is a blueprint for an object. A class may have a default constructor, a constructor with arguments, accessor methods, mutator methods, public fields, and private fields. Choose a category (such as animal, vehicle, and so on) and describe how you would design a class for it. Most importantly, include methods relevant to the class.

2.With the class designed in the other supporting activity, modify it so that it has data encapsulation.

Modify the Week Two Java™ application to meet these additional and changed business requirements:

  • The company has recently changed its total annual compensation policy to improve sales.

  • A salesperson will continue to earn a fixed salary of $50,000. The current sales target for every salesperson is $120,000.

  • The sales incentive will only start when 80% of the sales target is met. The current commission is 15% of total sales.

  • If a salesperson exceeds the sales target, the commission will increase based on an acceleration factor. The acceleration factor is 1.25. That is,

    • At 80% of $120,000 (target), a sales person earns no commission - just the base salary of $50,000

    • Between 80% and $120,000 (target), a sales person earns 15% commission on top of base salary of $50,000

    • At $120,000 (target) and over, the sales person earns 15% x 1.25 commission on top of base salary of $50,000

  • The application should ask the user to enter annual sales, and it should display the total annual compensation.

  • The application should also display a table of potential total annual compensation that the salesperson could have earned, in $5000 increments above the salesperson's annual sales, until it reaches 50% above the salesperson's annual sales.

    • Sample Table: Assuming a total annual sales of $100,000, the table would look like this:

Total Sales

The Java™ application should also meet these technical requirements:

  • The application should have at least two classes like in the first assignment.

  • The source code must demonstrate the use of conditional and looping structures.

  • There should be proper documentation in the source code.
