2 Objectives Learn the basic sequence, selection, and repetition statements Identify objects and their responsibilities Simple debugging techniques Handle floating-point numbers Study applets, draw various shapes

3 3.1 Relational Operators and Expressions Relational operators include:, >=, ==, and != Each relational operator takes two operands and gives a boolean value: true or false Be careful not to confuse == with = Relational operators have precedence lower than arithmetic operators but higher than assignment operators

5 Control Flow The order Java executes the statements of a program is sequential if not told otherwise int item1 = 25; int item2 = 12; item2 = item1 + 15; Conditional statement like the if and if-else statements allow us to make decision They change the default control flow

6 Figure 3.3 The sequence control flow Entry int item1 = 25; int item2 = 12; Item2 = item1+15; Exit

7 3.2 The if and if-else statements The syntax if ( condition ) if_true_statement ; [ else if_false_statement ; ] condition must be boolean : true or false If condition is true, if_true_statement is executed; if the condition is false, if_false_statement is executed One or the other will be executed, but not both

8 Figure 3.4 Control flow for the if statement condition False if_true_statement

9 The if Statement: Example hours = Integer.parseInt(input); if (hours > 40) System.out.println(“You worked overtime “ + “this week”); System.out.println(“You worked “ + hours + “ hours”);

10 Figure 3.5 Control Flow for Example 3.2 hours = Integer.parselnt(input); Hours>40 System.out.println( “you worked ” + hours + “ hours”); False System.out.println(“You “ + “worked overtime this week”) True

11 Figure 3.6 Flow chart for the if-else statement Condition if_true_statementif_false_statement TrueFalse

12 The if-else Statement: Example if (hours <= 40) wage = hourlyRate * hours; else wage = hourlyRate * 40 + hourlyRate * 1.5 * (hours - 40);

13 Block Statements Several statements can be grouped together into a block statement A block is delimited by braces ( { … } ) A block statement can be used wherever a statement is called for in the Java syntax For example, in an if-else statement, the if-portion, or the else-portion, or both, could be block statements

14 Figure 3.7 Flow chart for if statement with block, step 1 Z <= 10 True False x = 2; y = 7;

15 Figure 3.8 Flow chart if statement with block, step 2 Z <= 10 x = 2; True False y = 7;

16 Block Statements Use a consistent style for blocks if (x < 10) { y = 5; z = 8; } else { y = 9; z = -2; } if (x < 10) { y = 5; z = 8; } else { y = 9; z = -2; }

17 3.3 The Type Double Scientific (floating-point) notation for real numbers: and can be written respectively as E E is the mantissa, 3 and -2 are the exponents, with the implicit base of 10 Scientific notation is good for numbers with very small or very large absolute value Java has type double that provides 16 decimal digits accurately.

18 public class Triangle { private double side1, side2, side3; public Triangle(double a, double b, double c) { side1 = a; side2 = b; side3 = c; } public double circumference() { return side1 + side2 + side3; } public double area() { double s = circumference() / 2.0; return Math.sqrt(s*(s - side1)*(s - side2)*(s - side3)); }

19 Double Value Output When printed using print or println methods of System.out, Java prints double values using the most convenient format Scientific format for numbers greater than 10,000,000 or less than -10,000,000, and for numbers between and.001. Java treats decimal literals as type double Java does not print trailing zeroes Type double is accurate to 16 significant digits The 17th digit may be rounded

20 Input and Formatted Output import javax.swing.*; import java.text.*; … public static void main(String[] args) { NumberFormat nf = NumberFormat.getCurrentcyInstance(); String s = JOptionPane.showInputDialog(“Hours worked? “); double hours = Double.parseDouble(s); JOptionPane.showMessageDialog (null, “Your pay is “ + nf.format(hours * 5.5)); System.exit(0); }

21 Formatted Output The NumberFormat class has static methods that return formatter object getCurrencyInstance() getPercentInstance() Each formatter object has a method called format that returns a string with the specific information in the appropriate format The DecimalForma t class can be used to format a floating point value in generic way The DecimalFormat class takes a string that represents a pattern for the formatted number

22 Data Conversions Sometimes it is convenient to convert data from one type to another Conversion must be handled carefully to avoid losing information Widening conversions are safest because they tend to go from a small data type to a larger one (such as a short to an int ) Narrowing conversions can lose information because they tend to go from a larger data type to a smaller one (such as an int to a short )

23 Data Conversions In Java, data conversions can occur in three ways: –assignment conversion –arithmetic promotion –casting Assignment conversion occurs when a value of one type is assigned to a variable of another type –Only widening conversion can happen via assignment Arithmetic promotion happens automatically when operators in expressions converts their operands Casting is the most powerful, and dangerous, technique for conversion result = (float) total / count;

25 3.4 The While Loop Repetition statements allow us to execute a statement multiple times repetitively They are often referred to as loops Like if-else statements, they are controlled by boolean expressions’ Java has three kinds of repetition statements: the while loop, the do loop, and the for loop The while loop has this syntax while ( condition ) while_true_statement ;

26 The While Loop If the condition is true, the statement is executed Then the condition is evaluated again The statement is executed repetitively until the condition becomes false If the condition is false initially, then the statement is never executed The body of a while loop must eventually make the condition false If not, it is an infinite loop, which is a common logical error unless you are absolutely sure it is not

28 Problem Solving The purpose of writing a program is to solve a problem The general steps in problem solving are: –Understand the problem –Dissect the problem –Design a solution –Consider alternatives to the solution and refine it –Implement the solution –Test the solution and fix and problems that exist

29 Problem Solving Many software development project failed because the developers didn’t understand the problems to be solved Avoid assumptions and clarify ambiguities As problems and their solutions becomes larger, we must organize our development into manageable pieces We will dissect our solutions into pieces called classes and objects, taking an object-oriented approach

30 Program Development The creation of software involves four basic activities: –establishing the requirements –creating a design –implementing the code –testing the implementation Real development process is much more involved than this, but these four steps are a good starting point

31 Requirements Requirements specify the tasks a program must accomplish (what to do, not how to do it) They often include description of the user interface The initial requirements must be critiqued, modified, and expanded It is often difficult to establish detailed, unambiguous, and complete requirements Careful attention to the requirements can save significant time and money in the overall project

32 Design An algorithm is a step-by-step process for solving a problem A program follow one or more algorithms The design of a program specifies the algorithms and data needed In object-oriented development, the design establishes the classes, their data and methods The details of a method may be expressed in pseudocode, which is code-like, but does not necessarily follow any specific syntax

33 Implementation Implementation is the process of translating a design into source code Most novice programmers think that writing code is the heart of software development, but it is actually the least creative step Almost all important decisions are made during requirements analysis and design Implementation should focus on coding details, including guidelines, clarity, maintainability, expandability, and documentation

34 Testing A program should be executed multiple times with various input in an attempt to find errors Debugging is the process of discovering the cause of a problem and fix it Debugging can only indicate the presence of errors (bugs), but not the absence Don’t ever think there is only one more bug to fix tests should focus on design details as well as overall requirements

35 Figure 3.11 Pseudocode for the sum of test scores problem Read the quantity of scores; while (count < quantity) { Read the next score; Add the score to the total so far; Increment the count of scores; } Display the quantity and the total;

36 3.5 Debugging Syntax error –caught by the compiler –easy to fix Run-time error –reported at run-time by interpreter –often depending on input and environment –usually cause program to terminate immaturely Logical error –program runs but results are wrong –can be very difficult to find and/or fix Requirement error –disastrous

37 3.6 Getting Started with Applets A java application is a stand-alone program with a main method An applet is a Java program that is intended to be transported over the web and executed using a web browser An applet doesn’t have a main method Instead, there are several special methods that serve specific purposes The paint method, for instance, is automatically executed and is used to draw the applets contents

38 Drawing Shapes The paint method accepts a parameter that is an object of the Graphics class A Graphics object defines a graphical context on which we can draw shapes and text The Graphics class has several methods for drawing shapes The class that defines the applet extends the Apple t class This makes use of inheritance, an object-oriented concept to be explored later
