Important! Today you must rotate who is doing the typing as you move from one method to the next. Every person in your group must have a chance to be the lead person at the keyboard, for at least one method described below.
All group members are encouraged to help the lead person at the keyboard.
In preparation for the exercises below, open in eclipse the following, found in the studios source folder of your repository:
You can run the JUnit test even before all of the methods are written into your Methods class file. If challenged, persevere and run the JUnit test anyway. The output you should expect is described below.
In the work you see below, you should be asking yourselves the following as you write code:
- What is the name of the method I must create? The name is important, and if you get it wrong, the test code won't be able to test your code. The case of every character must agree with what you are asked to write. The method Sum is a different method to Java than the method named sum.
- What are the types of the input paramters? These must also agree with the specification.
- What is the type of the return value, if any? This must agree with the specification.
This has already been completed for you to serve as an example.
- To run the JUnit test, go to the Package window, right- (control-) click on MethodsTest, drag down to Run as, and select JUnit Test.
- The tests will now run and this should not take much time.
- When the tests have completed, look at the the JUnit window, which should now be open on the left of your screen.
- You should now see a a reddish stripe, indicating that at least one test failed.The tests that failed did so because you have not yet written the methods for those tests. So don't worry (yet).
- You should see just in front of the testSum entry a happy green check mark, because that test did pass.
- Take a look at MethodsTest and the testSum method therein. See how it usesassertEquals(7, Methods.sum(3,4));to test the sum method?
- Add another line in testSum that ensures the sum method works on negative values as well.
Make sure you understand what you see. The trace shows you the value that was expected and the value that was computed.
It is easy to do this through eclipse. Above your method declaration, simply type /** and hit enter, and eclipse will automatically generate the JavaDoc block for you!
Hint Call the method you already wrote to compute the sum instead of rewriting or copying code.
Give your method a name and a specification (input types and return type), and implement it in the Methods class.
In the MethodsTest class, insert testing code like what you see for the other methods.
You must precede the test method by a @Test directive. Get help if necessary.
Some helpful information:
- If s is a String, then s.substring(0,1) returns the first character of s.
- If s is a String, then s.substring(1) returns all but the first character of s.
- For more information, see substring.
Before you write the code, look at the test! All you have to do to satisfy the test is to return a string that begins with the input's second character, appends the input's first character, and then appends "ay" at the end.
This is not really pig latin, but it does satisfy the test I gave you.
If you want to go for the real thing, read the article and recode so that your code does a true pig latin transformation. Add some more tests to show off your improvement. For example: scram → amscray.
