In this project, you will be implementing a railroad yard simulation program. The user will provide a set of incoming cars, and then a desired outgoing order. Your program will determine if the given incoming cars can be rearrangedto the desired outgoing order or not. [50 points]Background: This is an example of a control/management system: in order to deliver specific resources to specific destinations, we have to guarantee that those resources are available attheir destinations. Consider: the easiest car todetactfrom a train transporting materials is the back most one. Thus, it would ideal to arrange thetrain'scars in such a way that the order of destinations visited, matches the order of the cars. If the required car is in the middle of the train, there will be trouble! Our goal is to address this by trying to arrange the cars into the order of the destinations they will visit ("desired outgoing order").Problem: Imagine that the rail yard looks like this:Incoming cars Outgoing cars (based on destination order)>----------------------------------------------------------------------------------->A B C D E E D C B A>-----------------------------\ /----------------------------------->\ /| || || || || |----------------Waiting LineIn this example, the incoming cars come in the order E, D, C, B and A. The desired outgoing order (since the track moves only to the right) is A, B, C, D and E. Our program considers the first incoming car, vs the desired outgoing car. Since E != A, E must go into the waiting line. Now our program will consider both the car at the top of the waiting line (since it is blocking allthe others cars) as well as the incoming car each time. Again, E != A but also D != A, so D gets put in the waiting line, blocking E in the process. This will continue until A is the only car left in the incoming line, and it will be sent out. This leaves nothing incoming, but B would be the top car in the waiting line. Since B == B, B gets taken from the waiting line and sent out. This will repeat until all cars are gone, meaning the input was successfully matched to the output. An example that does NOT match is UGTA to AGTU. A, T and G would go into the waiting line. U would be sent out, but then the next required outgoing car is T. There would be nothing left in the incoming line, and the top car in the waiting line would be G. So, the match fails.Program Features:1.You must take in incoming cars from the user until they input "DONE".2.You must take in outgoing cars from the user until they have given as many cars as they didin step 1.3.You must print out whether or not the given input cars can be matched to the given output.Java API Usage Requirements:You may import the following packages:Scanner, Stack, Queue,LinkedList. No other packages are allowed.
