    Something like that:

    public class Inventory {
        private long partNo;
        private long description;
        private long quantity;
        public Inventory() {
        public Inventory(long partNo, long description, long quantity) {
            this.partNo = partNo;
            this.description = description;
            this.quantity = quantity;
        public long getPartNo() {
            return partNo;
        public void setPartNo(long partNo) {
            this.partNo = partNo;
        public long getDescription() {
            return description;
        public void setDescription(long description) {
            this.description = description;
        public long getQuantity() {
            return quantity;
        public void setQuantity(long quantity) {
            this.quantity = quantity;
    Now you can create new object and att it to your array:

            Inventory[] inventories = new Inventory[10];
            inventories[0] = new Inventory(123, "Shampoo", 24);
    BTW it will be better to use lists instead of arrays. For example, ArrayList.

    PS. Also you need to find some Java book :). It will be helpful.
