My last modification to this program is to do the following.

Resolved Question:

My last modification to this program is to do the following.

• The application will now compare the total annual compensation of at least two salespersons.

• It will calculate the additional amount of sales that each salesperson must achieve to match or exceed the higher of the two earners.

• The application should ask for the name of each salesperson being compared.

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 Array or ArrayList.
• There should be proper documentation in the source code..

I exhausted so much time trying to make right my code from the other assignment that I haven't had as much time to study and am even more lost on this assignment. I am looking over your other answer now to see where I went wrong now. Your help is appreciated. I have to ask for more comments on this one so I can see what is going on with the unusual statements. Statements using dot operators, assignment statements, and such give me the most trouble. Some of the basics are starting to stick with me mentally now that I have really read and reread a lot of material on it as well as struggled with getting code to pass correctly.

Ok, here is the code I have thus far from previous assignments along the same path.

Employee.CommissionRate = 0.05;

employee.setTotalSales(input.nextDouble());

double originalSales = employee.getTotalSales();
double potSales = originalSales;

potSales += 5000;
employee.setTotalSales(potSales);
