Question: write a program named quotvegetablepricerquot which prompts the user for...

Question details

Write a program named "VegetablePricer" which prompts the user for a vegetable from the pricing table shown below. The program will then display the cost per pound for that vegetable, again using the table provided.

  • Your program must use a switch statement to process the input value and display the desired output.
    • Be sure to provide a default case in your switch statement which handles unrecognized input.
  • Use named constants for all constant strings (e.g. prompts and vegetable names) and price values.
  • Provide an identification header block and descriptive comments throughout.
  • Use consistent indentation, whitespace for readability, and camelHump format for multi-word variable names.
  • To read a String value from the keyboard, assuming a Scanner variable named input and String variable named s, use

s = input.nextLine();

  • When comparing two strings, you should either do a case-insensitive comparison or convert the strings to one consistent case. For instance, if my input variable for this program is "String inVeg", my switch statement to compare against the available choices looks like this:

switch (inVeg.toLowerCase()) {

   so I can consistently compare against my all lower case vegetable name string constants.
