Hi,

Could you please help?? I am tired and confused. I don't what to do any more! I am trying to write a traffic simulation and i wrote some interface and some classes but the main one that has a big chunk of code seems to me like nightmare. Certainly it is confusing and doesn't make sense. I have three lights that have green yellow and red. I wrote three classes westligh, southlight and eastlight implementing threads so that there a pause for each of them. I have to code when a car is running it has to stop for any obstruction such a car infront of it, or a red light. The light have different timing such the first one 30 second for red 5 for yellow and 45 for green. the next cross light has 50 for red 5 for yellow and 25 for green. The simulation is run base on the time given by the user. Now i though i can use the Date class. Still how to tell if it is first second do this and if it is the second second do that...... I will paste my confusing code for class Car.java. Please help me with this and tell me what could i improve and how to use the Date class and this the wright way to move a car? Thank you very much and Here is the code:

We have the same problem in a different situation... i would like to create a traffic simulation about road traffic for my simulation subject and my problem is i'm just a newbie in java i didnt know what im gonna do right now, it's obvious that i cannot make it own my own so i gonna beg you that please can i have your program for the salvation of my simulation course if not then its the end. I will present the simulation project this february 27, 2008 and basically i need your help before the schedule date. my email address is lordonin@gmail.com advance thanks if lean your hand for helping me for my project.

:rolleyes:

Hi,

Could you please help?? I am tired and confused. I don't what to do any more! I am trying to write a traffic simulation and i wrote some interface and some classes but the main one that has a big chunk of code seems to me like nightmare. Certainly it is confusing and doesn't make sense. I have three lights that have green yellow and red. I wrote three classes westligh, southlight and eastlight implementing threads so that there a pause for each of them. I have to code when a car is running it has to stop for any obstruction such a car infront of it, or a red light. The light have different timing such the first one 30 second for red 5 for yellow and 45 for green. the next cross light has 50 for red 5 for yellow and 25 for green. The simulation is run base on the time given by the user. Now i though i can use the Date class. Still how to tell if it is first second do this and if it is the second second do that...... I will paste my confusing code for class Car.java. Please help me with this and tell me what could i improve and how to use the Date class and this the wright way to move a car? Thank you very much and Here is the code:

That's a massive amount of code for people to go through. I think you are going to have to help us out by being more specific regarding what you've tried, what works, what doesn't, does it run, does it crash, under what conditions, etc., and try to point us to a certain part of the code. Also, and particularly in a program as long as this, code tags are a must:

[code=JAVA] // paste your code here

[/code]
Otherwise all the indentation goes away. Adding the "=JAVA" is useful on a long program like this since it adds line numbers people can refer to. Here's a code beautifier link that makes things indent nicely too if it doesn't already:

im desperate now, i could not make it own my own because im just newbie.i dont have deep experience with java.

No one will give you a program no matter how desperate you are. You actually need to do the work, not us. Read the rules.

in fact, the more desperate you are the less likely we are to help you as the more we want you to fail and prevent you from polluting the job market with your non-existent skills, causing all real programmers to look bad and get more work trying to clean up after you.

hi dounia...

can you help me in my project??? im a newbie here.. my problem is also like this... i dont know what to do... we should pass it on october 16,2008.... :( how should i start?? i have 2 only 2 days left...

hi dounia...

well ...

maybe you didn't see this comming, but you kind of shouldl... this original thread is ancient, it was dug up for the same reason as you are doing now, begging for code. just read the remarks that were left as comment to him.

what to do is install java, making an analysis of the what how when who questions, start coding it, and, if by any chance, you come across a problem you can't fix yourselve, start a new thread (yup, new) with the relevant code and error messages.

that way we can help you. I doubt this assignment was given today, so you have only yourself to thank for the fact that just little time remains. but always remember, we will not hand over the complete code to you, especially if you don't show any effort yourself.. this is because:
1. you wouldn't learn a thing
2. we don't have the time, we have projects of our own to work on
