Simple Java Programs for Beginners

Explore a collection of simple Java programs for beginners, including an Employee Benefits Calculator. Learn to code and estimate net monthly salaries with ease. Here's a Java program for an Employee Benefits Calculator. This program allows employees to estimate their net monthly salary after factoring in benefits such as health insurance, retirement contributions, and bonuses.

Core Java Programming

Java Back-End Development import java.util.Scanner;

class Employee {

private String name;

private double baseSalary;

private double healthInsuranceCost;

private double retirementContribution;

private double bonus;

public Employee(String name, double baseSalary) { = name;

this.baseSalary = baseSalary;

this.healthInsuranceCost = 0;

this.retirementContribution = 0;

this.bonus = 0;


public void setHealthInsuranceCost(double cost) {

healthInsuranceCost = cost;


public void setRetirementContribution(double contribution) {

retirementContribution = contribution;


public void setBonus(double bonusAmount) {

bonus = bonusAmount;


public double calculateNetSalary() {

double grossSalary = baseSalary + bonus;

double deductions = healthInsuranceCost + retirementContribution;

return grossSalary - deductions;


public String getName() {

return name;



public class EmployeeBenefitsCalculator {

public static void main(String[] args) {

Scanner scanner = new Scanner(;

System.out.println("Employee Benefits Calculator");

System.out.print("Enter your name: ");

String name = scanner.nextLine();

System.out.print("Enter your base salary: $");

double baseSalary = scanner.nextDouble();

Employee employee = new Employee(name, baseSalary);

System.out.print("Enter health insurance cost: $");

double healthInsuranceCost = scanner.nextDouble();


System.out.print("Enter retirement contribution: $");

double retirementContribution = scanner.nextDouble();


System.out.print("Enter bonus amount: $");

double bonus = scanner.nextDouble();


double netSalary = employee.calculateNetSalary();

System.out.println("Net Monthly Salary Estimation for " + employee.getName() + ": $" + netSalary);





  • We define an Employee class to represent an employee's data, including their name, base salary, health insurance cost, retirement contribution, and bonus. It provides methods to set these benefit values and calculate the net salary.

  • In the EmployeeBenefitsCalculator class, we create a Scanner to take user input.

  • We ask the employee for their name, base salary, health insurance cost, retirement contribution, and bonus.

  • We create an Employee object with the provided data, set the benefit values, and calculate the net salary using the calculateNetSalary method.

  • We display the estimated net monthly salary for the employee.

This program allows employees to enter their personal data and get an estimate of their net monthly salary after factoring in benefits. You can expand upon this program to include more benefits, validation, and other features as needed.
