You'll need to share your code to make it possible for us to help. Take a look at this video about Posting a Question. And for when your question refers to something you are doing in a workspace, you may also want to view this one about sharing a snapshot of your workspace.

As Steven Parker has mentioned it is hard to know what part of the challenge you are stuck on without your code. However, the first part the hint is in the comment, maybe refer to the Java docs regarding Java.io.Console.

Also remember you want to execute the program repeatedly until the specified condition is true, think about how you access the variable you created hopefully that points you in the right direction.

do {
    // Your code to run goes here.
}
while (// condition to be checked);

Another thing to consider is how you compare a String will == do the job or do you need to think about something else?
