Question Description

Modify the Week Two Java™ application using Java™ NetBeans™ IDE 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 $100,000. 
 • The sales incentive will only start when 80% of the sales target is met. The current commission is 12% of total sales. 
 • If a salesperson exceeds the sales target, the commission will increase based on an acceleration factor. The acceleration factor is 1.5.
 • 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 one class, in addition to the application’s controlling class. • The source code must demonstrate the use of conditional and looping structures.
 • There should be proper documentation in the source code.

  public static double calcCompensation(double sales) {
  double compensation = 50000 + (0.12 * sales);
  compensation = (double) (Math.round(compensation*100))/100;
  return compensation;

Tutor went the extra mile to help me with this essay. Citations were a bit shaky but I appreciated how well he handled APA styles and how ok he was to change them even though I didnt specify. Got a B+ which is believable and acceptable.
