RE: Java: Switch Or If Else

Hi Dave,
Thanks for the thoughts. I'm sure experience will teach me about this. I'm just 
attempting to learn this stuff the right way the first time. This probably fits 
into the category of just do it and it will work itself out.

That's assuming you don't have complex conditions you're checking for;
sometimes, if/else if is the only way to go.  When code becomes
long/slightly unreadable, refactoring usually is a good idea.
