Hello everyone, I quite new at JAVA and one assignment is on my nose and I am going crazy..
My task is: "Create a solution for the following scenario: A local community mobile college unit holds 2 different classes in literacy and numeracy for mature students. A student can join the mobile unit and sign up to one or both classes. The students ID number, name, age and telephone no should be held on the system for initial sign up." and "An ultimate solution would be where the two courses can be set up and then students enrolled on the courses. A menu system should allow for input of extra courses (in case of expansion) input of student details and students to enroll on courses.
The menu should also allow a list of students by course, a list of all students by age.
".

Maybe I am doing it the wrong way, but..
I have created the WHILE for number of students to enroll on specific courses and my friend helped me to array it.. but I cant figure out how to print.out the information and if the array is where it supposed to be.

1st file:

import java.util.Scanner;

class test1 
 { 
	static student mystudent[] = new student[30];  // - create the array (30 element will be more then enough)
	static int arrindex = 0;			// - item index for the array

 	public static void menu()
 	{
 		System.out.println("\n\n1. Numeracy");
 		System.out.println("2. Literacy");
 		System.out.println("3. Add another course and enroll to it");
 		System.out.println("4. List of students by age");
 		System.out.println("5. List of students by course.");
 		System.out.println("6. Exit");
 	}

	public static void main (String[]args) 
 	{  
 		
 		Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);
 		
 		String studName, newCourse;
 		int studId, studAge, studTelNr, option=0;
 		
 		System.out.println("Wellcome to mobile college!");
 		
 		while (option!=6)
 		{
 			System.out.println("Choose your course you want to enroll to.");
 				
 			menu();
 			
 			System.out.println("");
 			option = input.nextInt();
 			
 			if (option!=6)
 			{	
 				
 				if (option==1)
 				{
 					System.out.println("\n\nFill in all details to enroll to Numeracy:");
 					System.out.println("\nYour student ID number ");
 					studId = input.nextInt();
 					System.out.println("Your Name ");
 					studName = input.next();
 					System.out.println("Your Age ");
 					studAge = input.nextInt();
 					System.out.println("Your telephone number ");
 					studTelNr = input.nextInt();
 				
 					mystudent[arrindex] = new student (studId, studName, studAge, studTelNr, "Numeracy"); // - put the new student to the array
					arrindex++;								  // - increase itemindex
 				}
 				
 				if (option==2)
 				{
 					System.out.println("Fill in all details to enroll to Literacy:");
 					System.out.println("\nYour student ID number ");
 					studId = input.nextInt();
 					System.out.println("Your Name ");
 					studName = input.next();

					arrindex++;
 				}
 				
 				if (option==4)
 				{
 					
 				}
 				
 				if (option==5)
 				{
 					System.out.println(""+student.getAge());
 				}
 			}
 		}

The following code has not been tested very well and lacks input validation.
Generics are not used as I am not sure which Java version you have.

very well structured!

Waw!
Although compiler doesn't like it very much "c:\*_*\test1.java uses unchecked or unsafe operations.
Note: Recompile with -Xlint:unchecked for details.
Process completed."
BUT it works like a charm! Its just brilliant!
Thank you so much for your help!!! You have saved my day :)

Edited 6 Years Ago by Dig: n/a

What the compiler doesn't like is the fact that generics are not used.
Like I said in the previous post, "Generics are not used as I am not sure which Java version you have."
But if you change ArrayList declarations from "raw" ArrayLists to generic ones, the warnings should go away.

//ArrayList students = new ArrayList();
ArrayList<Student> students = new ArrayList<Student>();

//ArrayList courses = new ArrayList();
ArrayList<Course> courses = new ArrayList<Course>();

If you recompile the code with the -Xlint:unchecked option, it should tell you all the places where "unchecked" code is used.

I am using java-6; jdk-6.20 version.
I have changet these 2 you gave me, but have no idea how to change the rest, I have compiled it with -Xlint:unchecked and it came up with these errors:

"C:\..\test1.java:118: warning: [unchecked] unchecked call to ArrayList(java.util.Collection<? extends E>) as a member of the raw type java.util.ArrayList
ArrayList list = new ArrayList(students);

For these lines:

ArrayList list = new ArrayList(students);
		Collections.sort(list, new StudentAgeComparator());

Here is a version of the code updated to use generics.
I commented out the parts of the code that are not needed when using generics--its mostly the type casts.
