Woodcock 323G - Founders Hall 254-519-5783 WoodcockTG@ct.tamus.edu TWR – 1-3:30 PM and by appointment Course Overview and description: This course is geared to upper-division students and covers more topics at a faster pace than the lower-level course. It provides an in-depth study of the Java programming language and how it implements the principles underlying object-oriented modularity through successive focusing on structured programming theory, functional abstraction, data encapsulation, and software module design. The course significantly expands the coverage beyond the fundamentals by introducing and applying systematic methodologies for isolating and correcting logic errors using debugging tools commonly found in the software industry. Course Objective: Understand and master syntax and features of the Java Programming Language Built-in data types, variables and constants – declaration, initialization, and assignment Expressions; math, relational and logic operators Interactive input and Graphical User Interfaces Simple file operations and streams Java syntax for program structures – sequence, decision, loop Using Java class libraries Creating Java methods and classes Creating Arrays and strings Exceptions and exception handling Apply principles of program design and logic Structured programming use sequence, decision, and loops Functional abstraction Modular design using Java methods Class design incorporating all of the principles listed above Apply principles of program logic to isolate errors Debuggers included with the Integrated Development Environment Setting breakpoints and watch variables Using output to report program progress Required Reading and Textbook(s): “Starting out with Java”, Tony Gaddis, Addison-Wesley Note - A student of this institution is not under any obligation to purchase a textbook from a universityaffiliated bookstore. CIS 332—Summer 2013 Course Requirements: There will be two exams, a midterm exam worth 100 points, and a final exam worth 100 points. There will be 8 programming assignments worth 100 points each. Assignments will be graded based on the following rubric: 1) that the software works and does the job specified in the assignment (40%), 2) demonstrates the concepts being covered (30%), and 3) contains the appropriate documentation (comments)(30%). 1. Project #1: Introductory Program. Demonstrate the use of variables. Write a program that asks the user to enter the following information: 1) Verb, 2) Adjective, 3) Plural Noun, 4) Adjective, 5) Verb ending in “ing”, 6) Verb, 7) Number, 8) Adjective, 9) Plural Noun, 10) Plural Noun, 11) Plural Noun, 12) Type of Relative, 13) Adjective, 14) Adjective, and 15) Plural Noun. As the user enters these values, the program should save the values in appropriately named variables. After the user has finished the program should display the following story with the user’s input in the appropriate locations: “Come <#1> at WALMART, where you`ll receive <#2> discounts on all of your favorite brand name <#3>. Our <#4> and <#5> associates are there to <#6> you <#7> hours a day. Here you will find <#8> prices on the <#9> you need. <#10> for the moms, <#11> for the kids and all the latest electronics for the <#12>. So come on down to your <#13> <#14> WALMART where the <#15> come first.” 2. Project #2: Demonstrate the use of decisions. Given the fact that there are 12 inches in a foot, and 5280 feet in a mile, and one eighth of a mile in a furlong, compute the distance for a selected unit of feet, miles, or furlongs for a given number of inches. Write a program that prompts the user for “feet”, “miles”, or “furlongs”. Then the program should prompt the user for a distance in inches. Lastly, the program should compute the number of feet, miles, or furlongs for the given number of inches and display this amount with the units selected. 3. Project #3: Demonstrate the use of loops. Write a program to calculate a hotel’s occupancy rate. The Occupancy rate = # of rooms occupied / total # of rooms. You should use loops to validate all input. Your program should start by prompting the user for the number of floors. Validate that the number of floors must be at least 1 and no more than 10. Your program should iterate once for each floor. For each floor, the program should ask for the number of rooms and then the number of occupied rooms. Validate the input making sure that there are at least 10 rooms on a floor and that the number of occupied rooms is less than the number of rooms on a floor. Display the total number of rooms in the hotel, the number of occupied rooms, the number of un-occupied rooms, and the occupancy rate for the hotel. 4. Project #4: Demonstrate creating and using methods. Create a program that plays the rock, paper, scissors game between the user and the computer. Create a method to compute the computer’s choice (use a random number between 1 and 3). Prompt the user for their choice. Have a method to decide who wins (rock beats scissor, scissor beats paper, paper beats rock, and two the same is a tie). Repeat the game until exit is chosen, then display the number of games played, how many games the computer won, how many games the user won, and how many games were ties (use a method to compute this). Your program MUST have at least four methods in it. 5. Project #5: Demonstrate arrays. Write a program that inputs a series of positive integers between 0 and 20, that uses an array to count how many times each integer is input. Do NOT save the integers that are input. Save the count of the integers that are input. When the input is an integer that is out of range (<0 or >20), the program should, for every integer whose count is greater than zero, display the integer and the count of the number of times this integer was input. 6. Project #6: Demonstrate classes. Create a class to store and manipulate Roman numerals. For simplicity, we will use simplified Roman Numerals where 3 = III, 4 = IIII, 5 = V, 6 = VI, 7 = VII, 8 = VIII, 9 = VIII,…, 19 = XVIIII, etc. Your class should store the Roman numeral as a Roman numeral and as the equivalent decimal number. The following table shows the decimal equivalent of Roman numerals: CIS 332—Summer 2013 Roman Numeral Decimal M D C L X V I 1000 500 100 50 10 5 1 Your class, let’s call it Roman, should have the following methods: Constructor: Accepts a Roman numeral only, saving the numeral and computes and saves the decimal equivalent of the Roman numeral. PrintRoman: Prints the Roman numeral GetRoman: Returns the Roman Numeral stored in the class. GetDecimal: Returns the decimal stored in the class. AddRoman: Accepts as parameter an object of type Roman and returns an object of type Roman that is contains the sum of the class Roman numeral and the parameter Roman numeral. (Hint: you will need a method to convert a decimal to a Roman numeral.) SubRoman: Same as above but subtracts. Include a program to create objects of type Roman and demonstrate add and subtract. 7. Project #7: Demonstrate basic GUI’s. Write a program with a GUI interface that allows a user to play a simple game of Hi-Low. This game is played by having the computer generate a hidden number between 1 and 100. The user guesses the number and the computer checks the hidden number against the guess and tells the user if the guess was high or low. The round continues until the user guesses the number. The game continues as long as the user wants to continue. 8. Project #8: Demonstrate string manipulation. Write a program that encrypts and decrypts plaintext into a secret code. For our code we will use a simple Row transposition cipher. To encrypt a message we need two things a message and a code key, which in this case is a series of integers. For example, let’s say our message is “I want an A in this class” and the code key is 516243. We start by creating a 2D array and putting the message in the arrayone letter at a time, across the rows as shown below (use * for blank space). 5 I * I S S 1 * A N * * 6 W N * C * 2 A * T L * 4 N A H A * 3 T * I S * Then we reorder the columns in the array so that the code key is in numerical order and read the columns to get the encrypted message. 1 * A N * * 2 A * T L * 3 T * I S * 4 N A H A * Encrypted message: *AN** A*TL* T*IS* NAHA* I*ISS WN*C* 5 I * I S S 6 W N * C * CIS 332—Summer 2013 Note 1: The code key can only contain the column number once and every column number must be in the code key. Note 2: Do not ever use this code for any real application. Third graders with an I-phone can crack this code in less than 5 minutes.

By enrolling in UNILERT, university officials can quickly pass on safety-related information, regardless of your location. Please enroll today at http://TAMUCT.org/UNILERT INSTRUCTOR POLICIES Students should come to class prepared, ready to ask questions and participate in discussions. While in other classes, the direct quoting of other authors is considered acceptable; in this class, it is not acceptable. You may not directly quote any other published paper, web site, or textbook in any writing assignment, including papers, homework, discussion boards, PowerPoint presentations, or any other written assignments. The simple reason for this is that copying (quoting) is a lower level skill. However, reading, understanding, and then communicating the ideas in your own words is a high level skill, which is the skill that I want you to develop.
