Questions:
Is there a chance that I can put the two classes together, how?
What are my mistakes?

Edited 5 Years Ago by ~s.o.s~: Added code tags, please learn to use them.

what do you mean 'put them together' and which mistakes are you referring to? is the code not doing what you expect it to do?

what do you mean 'put them together' and which mistakes are you referring to? is the code not doing what you expect it to do?

okey never mind the 1st question, so is there something wrong of my codes? im using netbeans and I got a lot of errors

well ... if you copy paste the errors here, I can take a look at it, but at the moment, I 'm not able to try and run your code to reproduce them.

in your first class: replace the
example.getTitle() => example variable (not just in this statement) in myBook
in your second class, since
II Print the titles of available from the first library
is comment, not actual code, either put // before it, or /* */ around it.

Sorry for the late reply this is the errors for the first class:

public boolean isBorrowed() {
}
public String getTitle() {
}
public static void main(String[] arguments) {
Book myBook = new Book("Da Vinci");
myBook.name = "The Da Vinci Code"
System.out.println("Title (should be The Da Vinci Code): " + example.getTitle()); 
System.out.println("Borrowed?  (should be false): " + example.isBorrowed()); 
example.rented();
System.out.println("Borrowed?  (should be true): " + example.isBorrowed());
example.returned();
System.out.println("Borrowed?  (should be false): " + example.isBorrowed());
}
}

Im trying to understand what you mean about your second post but I just dont understand sorry im not really good with java.

Edited 5 Years Ago by Ezzaral: Added code tags. Please use them to format any code that you post.

well, you try to call the getTitle() from a variable example, but your variable on which you should call these methods is called myBook, not example

so, this:

System.out.println("Title (should be The Da Vinci Code): " + example.getTitle());

should be:

System.out.println("Title (should be The Da Vinci Code): " + myBook.getTitle());

also for the other methods, off course

Edited 5 Years Ago by stultuske: removed not working tags

Thank You sir, The only problem now is this part is an error:

public boolean isBorrowed() {
}
public String getTitle() {
}
public boolean rented(){
}

every time I delete or change this part(above), errors are coming out in this section:

public static void main(String[] arguments) {
Book myBook = new Book("The Da Vinci Code");
System.out.println("Title (should be The Da Vinci Code): " + myBook.getTitle()); 
System.out.println("Borrowed?  (should be false): " + myBook.isBorrowed()); 
myBook.rented();
System.out.println("Borrowed?  (should be true): " + myBook.isBorrowed());
myBook.returned();
System.out.println("Borrowed?  (should be false): " + myBook.isBorrowed());}

I Add public boolean rented because of the myBook.rented(); << it give an error

Edited 5 Years Ago by Ezzaral: Added code tags. Please use them to format any code that you post. Learn to indent as well.

quite normal, you state that your method rented will return a boolean, but you don't return anything.

in next posts, could you also paste the text of the error message you are getting?

This is my current and wrong output:

rented? (should be false): false
rented? (should be true): false
rented? (should be false): false

Edited 5 Years Ago by lgbagabuyo: Lack of code

where do you set the value for borrowed?
and don't PM people with your code, this forum is a place where you can show your code, as well as have your problems solved in 'plain sight', so that others can benefit of it as well.

ok
This is what I did with my code, is there something wrong with it?

package book;
public class Book {
private String title;
boolean borrowed;
boolean rented = true;
public Book(String bookTitle) {
}
public void returned() {
}
public void rented(){
}
public boolean isBorrowed () {
return borrowed;
}
public boolean isRented(){
return rented;
}
public String getTitle() {
return title;
}
public static void main(String[] arguments) {

Book myBook = new Book("The Da Vinci Code");

myBook.title = "The Da Vinci Code";
System.out.println("Title (should be The Da Vinci Code): " + myBook.getTitle());
System.out.println("rented? (should be false): " + myBook.isBorrowed());

myBook.rented();
System.out.println("rented? (should be true): " + myBook.isRented());

myBook.returned();
System.out.println("rented? (should be false): " + myBook.isBorrowed());
}
}

Output:
Title (should be The Da Vinci Code): The Da Vinci Code
Rented? (should be false): false
Rented? (should be true): true
Rented? (should be false): false


Now my problem is the other class the library.java codes anyone help?

Edited 5 Years Ago by lgbagabuyo: update

you are not getting the point.
you need to set the values in the method you've implemented for that.

replace

public void returned() {
}
public void rented(){
}

either by:

public void setRented(boolean rented){
this.rented = rented;
}

or by

public void setRented(){
 if ( isRented())
   this.rented = false;
else 
  this.rented = true;
}

and adjust the calls to the method if needed.
at this point, no matter what or when you call isRented(), it will always return true.

Thank you sir, sorry for your the inconvenience and Im not really good at Java that's why I really need you advice's and corrections.
also I could not believe that in this part
public void setRented(){
if ( isRented())
this.rented = false;
else
this.rented = true;
we could use if/else statement my instructor never said that or even gave examples

well ..
when you are hungry, do you throw a sandwhich together yourself, or do you sit, wait and starve to death, until someone tells you that you can and are allowed to make one yourself, and show you how to do it?

when studying a programming language, there's way too much information too be taught in its whole, not to mention that every day new libraries and frameworks are released or upgraded with new functionality. it's a part of your job to check out new options.

I'll repost that piece of code again, with some comments, maybe you'll have it easier to understand.

/* as the method name tells us, this method will be used to set the value of rented.
 * rented is a boolean, which can only have true or false, which I assume you knew
 * already, so, now there are two 'rules' you can follow here:
 * 1. set based on the new value. this would mean that, even if the current value is
 * true, you can still set the value to true.
 * 2. set based on the current value. for instance, set paused/playing on a mp3
 * player. if the playing is true, it needs to be set to false (to show that the 
 * song is paused.)
 */
    public void setRented(){
    // since you don't pass a parameter, you'll need to verify the current
    // value of the boolean, which you can do by checking the value that the setter
    // of the boolean variable returns.
    if ( isRented())
    // if it is true, set to false
    this.rented = false;
    else
    // if it was false, set to true.
    this.rented = true;
    }

of course, there are more ways to do this, but I just added this way as an example that there are several ways you can set the value and there are several different logics that can be behind it.

Thank you sir, sorry for your the inconvenience and Im not really good at Java that's why I really need you advice's and corrections.

public void setRented(){
 if (isRented())
   this.rented = false;
else

this is the code

public Book(String bookTitle) {
}
public void setRented(){
if(isRented())
        this.rented = false;

public boolean isBorrowed () {
return borrowed;
}
public boolean isRented(){
return rented;

NOTE: Codes with <<< have the errors listed above

well, the errors are quite self explanatory.. cannot find symbol => might be you didn't write the code, or maybe you didn't import the class you're trying to use.

do remember: setRented only changes the value of the rented variable, you're still not setting the value of borrowed

but im getting the right output and no errors with the codes.

when I put this code:
public void setBorrowed(boolean isBorrowed){
this.borrowed = borrowed;}
netbeans says ("Assignment to itself") but I can still run the codes

that is, because your parameter is not called 'borrowed', it is named isBorrowed, so change that code to:

public void setBorrowed(boolean isBorrowed){
this.borrowed = isBorrowed;}

that is, because your parameter is not called 'borrowed', it is named isBorrowed, so change that code to:

public void setBorrowed(boolean isBorrowed){
this.borrowed = isBorrowed;}

Okey change it, I already did that code and its an error, my mistake because what I did is this
public void setBorrowed(boolean isBorrowed){
this.borrowed = isborrowed;} the small b and the big B I have to pay more attention with the letters

yup ... Java is extremely case sensitive, so isborrowed and isBorrowed will never be seen as the same variable names.
