    There's quite a lot of Australians here.

    In fact, SitePoint is an Australian company.

    G'day!

    Just finished my Java programming exam today...and I must say....eeeaassy! The hardest bit was actually convincing myself that this was the exam and not my dreams! Seriously, the practice exam was harder...but hey, I've finished now so its ALL good! see you guys around

    haha, nah its easy! well maybe coz I spent like the last 3 days trying to do it and I kinda know how to do my stuff like Applets and Applications which use ActionListener like the back of my hand now...and I know how to do stuff with arrays! yess! hehehe...mind you you I'll probably forget in about a day or two!

    what kinda stuff you doing with Java? Since my course is not quite a design course, but not quite a computing course, we do Java but we concentrate on the graphical side. but what about you?

    OH yeah and which part of Adelaide? are you close to those Planet Shakers events?

    I'm doing computer and information science, it is *REALLY* boring, more boring than anything else I can image! (apart from iTec)..

    We've havn't covered much really, just finished arrays... but thats just my first semester. I really want to do a straight out design course though, pity there arn't any

    PHP Code:
       import cs1.Keyboard;
               
       public class 
    P05Main
               
       
    {
                  
          public static 
    void main (String [] args)
                  
          {
             
    double 
             temperature
    ,                            // The temperature on a given day
             
    highestTemperature,                    // The highest temperature, all days
             
    lowestTemperature,                    // The lowest temperature, all days
             
    rain;                                        // The rainfall on a given day
             
    int        
             numberOfDays 
    0,                        // The number of days of data
             
    numberOfRainyDays 0;                // The number of rainy days.
          
             
    System.out.println ("Gavin Benda. 100000117. Thursday 13. Room F1-11");
             
    System.out.println ("***********************************************");
             
    System.out.println ("This is my work as defined by the");
             
    System.out.println ("university's academic misconduct policy.");
          
              
    // Get user input
          
             
    System.out.print ("Enter the temperature and rainfall data >");
             
    temperature Keyboard.readDouble();
             
    rain Keyboard.readDouble();

    int rainyDayCount 0;
             while (
    rain >= 0)
             {
                if (
    temperature highestTemperature)
                   
    highestTemperature temperature;
                else if (
    temperature lowestTemperature)
                   
    lowestTemperature temperature;
                else {}
             
                
    System.out.print ("Enter the temperature and rainfall data >");
                
    temperature Keyboard.readDouble();
                
    rain Keyboard.readDouble();
             
             
                
    numberOfDays = ++dayCount;

    System.exit(0);
             }

    System.out.println ("There was " numberOfRainyDays " rainy day");
             
             else if (

             else
                
    System.out.println ("No Rain Experienced");
             
    System.exit(0);
          
          }    
    //End Method
       
    }     // End P05Main 
    is about the extent of my java experience

    I'm in north adelaide though, and planet shaker events never heard of them...

    Perth ey! Good to see some 'range' hehe:P

    Plats
    That's alright Java...not too hard. You seem to know what you're doing. Can I ask a few questions, and give a tip maybe
    Q1: is there only supposed to be one import? or there isn't supposed to be any:
    import java.awt.*;

    Q2: why doesn't this work? I chucked this in my java program thingy...the uni told us to us JCreator, so that's what I use...and since I saw you used the args[] array, I thought itd have to be an Application....but JCreator didn't like your import csl.Keyboard import. Not sure why.

    Advice:
    Not sure whether or not your uni has told you, but I've heard that its good practice to use those curly braces if you use loops. A whole chunk of my Java code didn't work just because of that...and so I ALWAYS put curly braces such like:
    INSTEAD OF THIS:
    PHP Code:
    while (rain >= 0)
             {
                if (
    temperature highestTemperature)
                   
    highestTemperature temperature;
                else if (
    temperature lowestTemperature)
                   
    lowestTemperature temperature;
                else {} 
    I DO THIS:
    PHP Code:
    while (rain >= 0) {
        if (
    temperature highestTemperature) {
            
    highestTemperature temperature;
        } else if (
    temperature lowestTemperature) {
            
    lowestTemperature temperature;
        }

    I'm not sure why you had the else{} code, coz well else nothing...thats what that's basically saying.


    Anyway, that's enough from me

    Well you have to use the curly brackets if you go for anymore than one line of code in your if statement, but if it's just a single line you dont need to bother

    hehe, yeah, the else was just in there because it was

    not sure why it doesn't work?! I use pcGRASP, thinking of upgrading to JGRASP, but it compiles and runs okay for me...
