05/07/13 Here are the lecture slides about inheritance that I promised.
05/03/13 In class today, I mistakenly said that lecture slides for the course were available on the class webpage of a previous semester. That is not true! I was thinking of my CMSC 132 class in which I have used lecture slides in the past. On Monday I will post the lecture slides on inheritance, since I think you might find them useful while studying for your final.

03/26/13 There was a technical problem with the submit server and a few recent submissions may have been lost. If you submitted your project recently (on or after Sunday), you should resubmit it just to be sure.
03/18/13 Regarding Project #4: When writing JUnit tests, you should avoid using assertEquals for this project. (AssertTrue can be used instead). As mentioned previously, the version of equals that we are writing is technically incorrect, and is not compatible with assertEquals. Later in the course we will learn the proper way to write an equals method!

02/15/13 Regarding Project #1: You may NOT use any return statements in this project! (Don't worry if you don't know about return statements yet -- we'll get to it very soon.)
02/08/13 There is a way to have Eclipse automatically draw a vertical line in the editor at exactly the 80th column. (That way you can easily check that your lines are all less than 80 characters long, which is our requirement for this course.) Try this: Right-click inside the editor, then choose Preferences, General, Editors, Text Editors. You'll see a checkbox called "show print margin". Check this box, and enter the value 80 in the box below that says Print margin column.
