07/09/08   The jar file for project #4 has been corrected. If you were getting that strange error that we talked about in class, please check out the project again. When it asks if you would like to over-write the existing project say "yes". (It would be a good idea to back up your work prior to checking out the project again, just to be sure that you have a copy of your most current version.)

06/27/08   Project #3 has been posted!

06/27/08   Don't forget that the first midterm exam will be on Tuesday of next week. Be on time, and bring pencil(s) with working eraser(s).

06/18/08   Project #2 has been posted! I was very pleased with how diligently most of you worked on project #1 -- I hope the pattern will continue. Keep up the enthusiasm!

06/12/08   There is a way to have Eclipse automatically draw a vertial 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.) 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.

06/12/08   The dates for the exams will be:
  • Midterm #1: Tuesday 7/1
  • Midterm #2: Tuesday 7/29
  • Final Exam: Friday 8/8

06/09/08   Project #1 has been posted. You should read the project description by selecting "Projects" from the menu to the left. Be sure to check out the project files from your CVS repository (the Project is called "Summer08Proj1".)

06/08/08   The Java examples that were presented in Friday's lecture have been posted to your CVS repository. To retrieve them in Eclipse, go into the CVS perspective and "check out" the project called Summer08Lec03Examples. The switch back to the Java perspective to open the files. From there you can edit them and alter them as much as you like. All of the examples that are presented in class will be distributed to you in this way, so please take some time to learn from them by doing your own experimentation wth them!

06/02/08  Be sure to check this page from time to time (I recommend daily) for important course announcements.  The more recent messages will appear at the top of the page.
