Assessment item 1—Java Console Program

Due date: Week 6 T119 – Midnight, Friday 26 April 2019
Refer below for complete assessment item 1 requirements
Assignment One)
Weighting: 20% 1
Length: N/A

This assessment item relates to the unit learning outcomes as in the Unit Profile.
For this assignment, you are required to develop Java Console Programs to demonstrate you can use
Java constructs including input/output via a command line and using GUI dialogs, Java primitive and
built-in data types, Java defined objects, selection and looping statements, methods, and various other
Java commands. Your program must produce the correct results.
You are only allowed to use techniques which have been covered in the first five weeks of the
subject and within the assignment literature
, you must use a Scanner object for console input and
no advanced data structures like arrays will be used.
What to submit for this assignment
The Java source code:
You will be able to complete the assignment in weekly parts in which you will produce five java
source files. (More details below),,, and
Once you have completed all of the programs and you are ready to submit, compress all source files
into a single zip file for submission,
do not include your report in the zip file. Only submit a zip not
a rar file. It is important the file names are correct.
Also submit a report including, how long it took to create the programs (approximately), any
problems encountered and screen shots of the output produced. (Use Alt-PrtScrn to capture just the
console window or your dialogs and you can paste them into your Word document) You should test
every possibility in the program and annotate your test screen shots.

You will submit your files by the due date using the “Assignment 1 Submission” link on the Moodle
unit website in the
Assessment Block or in the relevant week.
Assignment specification
This assignment will require you to write small five programs, do not panic! They will be small
programs which will cover the first five weekly topics. Usually students were required to write one
largish program to demonstrate the topics for the first five weeks. Students get themselves into trouble
when the first assignment is due as they have not practiced the basics skills necessary to complete the
assignment. With the assignment divided into five programs you can complete each question as we
cover the weekly topics, do not let yourself fall behind.
General Instructions
Each program must contain a header comment which contains: Your name and student number, the
name of the file, the date and a brief description of the purpose of the program:
// Programmer: Eric Gen S01234567
// File:
// Date: April 26 2019
// Purpose: COIT11222 assignment one question one T119
// Use println method to print initials using asterisks
All programs will be aligned and indented correctly, and contains relevant comments for declarations
and statements. All variables and objects will be declared with a meaningful name and use lowercase
camel notation:
String customerName;
All coding will be contained within a main method except for question five when a method will be
created and used.
For this assignment you will not worry about checking numeric ranges or data types.
Refer to a Java reference textbook and the unit material (available on the unit WEB
site) for further information about the Java programming topics required to complete this assignment.
Check the marking guide (last page) to ensure you have completed every task. You need to match all
output exactly as the sample screenshots shown below.
Distance and Melbourne students can email questions directly to me, other campus students should
seek help from your local tutor, and you can still contact me if it is urgent, I usually respond to emails
very promptly.
Good luck — Bruce McKenzie COIT11222 unit coordinator term 1 2019

Question one (week one topic). Writing output to the screen.
Once you have written your first “Hello World” program you will be able to complete question one.
Create a class called Week1 (file: and within it a main method.
Use the command
System.out.println(“”); to print out the first initial of your first and last
names as a matrix of asterisks. For example this is my first and last initials printed.
The first line of asterisks is printed with this command:
System.out.println(“****** * *”);
You may need to use some graph paper to plot where you need to print your asterisks.
If you like you could submit a picture. An attempt at Mickey Mouse! Just do your initials as it takes a
while to create a picture.

Question two (week 2 topics) Input of data types and arithmetic
Rocky Dry Cleaners program
Rocky Dry Cleaners are requesting a program which allows staff to input a customer’s name and the
number of plain garments to be dry cleaned. For simplicity we are only considering plain garments
which include shirts, trousers, dresses and jackets etc. The program will compute the cost of the order
$8.50 per garment, you should store this value as a constant.
This program will prompt for and read in a customer name using a Scanner object.
The customer name will be stored in a String object.
The program will then output the customer name in a prompt to read in the number of garments to be
cleaned (as a whole number i.e. an integer).
Finally the program will display the receipt for the customer.
You need to replicate the output
exactly as shown below, including the correct line spacing.
Create a class called Week2 ( and within it a main method as per question one.
Import the Scanner class i.e.
import java.util.Scanner;
Within your main create two Scanner objects named inText and inNumber. One for reading text and
the other for reading the numbers, it does not really matter here to have separate Scanner objects but
there will be problems later when reading a series of text and numbers (see text pg 77 or pg 81 8
Create a prompt using
System.out.print(); To ask the user for the customer name.
Declare a String object
customerName to store the customer name and use your inText Scanner
object and the inbuilt method
The customer name is now stored in the String object customerName.
COIT11222, 2019 Term One – Page 5 of 11
We can now create a prompt using the customer name to ask for the number of garments to be cleaned
Hint: you can join variables and strings using the concatenation operator +
“Enter the number of garments for ” + customerName + ” ==> ”
Declare an integer variable to store the number of garments and use your inNumber Scanner object
and the inbuilt method
inNumber.nextInt(); to read the number of garments.
Declare a double variable to represent the charge for the order.
The arithmetic expression to calculate the total charge is very simple:
charge = number of garments * charge per garment
Note: the charge per garment must be stored as a constant (use the final keyword).
Finally output a receipt for the order as per the sample above.
The total charge must be displayed to two decimal points use printf and a format string as follows:
System.out.printf(“$%.2f”, charge);
Question three (week three topics) Decision statements
The management of Rocky Dry Cleaners would like to encourage customers to get more garments dry
cleaned and to possibly get new customers. It has been decided to offer as a special, three garments to
be dry cleaned for $20.00 which would be a saving of $5.50 and any subsequent garments in the order
would be $6.50 per garment.
In summary:
One to two garments: $8.50 per garment.
Three garments: $20.00.
More than three garments: $20.00 plus $6.50 per garment after that.
Create a class
Week3 (file: and a main method and copy your code from question two
into the main method of week three main.
After you have read the relevant details of the order i.e. name and number of garments, you will have
to create a series of
if – else if statements to calculate the final charge.
For over three garments;
charge = three garments charge + (number of garments – 3) * charge over three
When you have calculated the total charge output a receipt as you have done in week two code.
Note: you must use constants for all the numeric literals in the else if statements.
Your output needs to match exactly the output as shown below.

Question four (week four topics) Repetition while and for loops
Create a class Week4 ( to demonstrate the use of a repetition statement.
Using your solution to question three and a while or for loop, repeat the entry of customer names
and the number of garments
N times where N is the largest digit in your student ID, if your largest
digit is less than three then let N = 3. Hint: use N = 3 while testing and submit using the correct N
N will be declared as an integer constant using the final keyword.
You are to print a title before the input of the customer names and number of garments (see sample
output). Note the different line spacing. You will also number the customer in the customer name
Ensure you are using a separate Scanner objects for reading numbers and text (why?).
When all of the customer names and number of garments have been entered and their individual
charges calculated, the average of the number of the garments for each order and the total of the
charges collected will be reported.
Please note you do not need to store the data in an advanced
structure such as an array
. You will need to have an integer variable to add up the number of
garments to calculate the average, and a double variable to add up the charges.
Your average garments per order calculation has to produce a floating point result. To get a floating
point result you will need to promote one of the operands to a double.
average = totalGarments * 1.0 / N
COIT11222, 2019 Term One – Page 8 of 11
Question five (week five topics) Methods and GUI I/O
Create a class Week5 ( by using your solution to question four. This question is
identical to question four as the program will read in N customer names and number of garments and
calculate the charges for the orders, however we are going to create a method to calculate the charges
and we will be using GUI dialog boxes for our I/O.
You will create a value returning method which will accept the number of garments as a parameter.
Use the following method header:
private static double calculateCharge(int garment)
Copy and paste your “if else if” code from question four for calculating the charge into the body of
our new method calculateCharge. You should also copy the constants for the numeric literals into the
method too. Use the
return statement to return the charge.
You can now use your method in the main method loop.
charge = calculateCharge(garments);
We will revisit the week two lecture topic using JOptionPane for accepting GUI input and
outputting information.
First we will output a welcome message using
JOptionPane.showMessageDialog (Replace
your console print output).
Next we will replace the Scanner objects by using
COIT11222, 2019 Term One – Page 9 of 11
The showInputDialog method will return the string entered into the dialog text field
customerName = JOptionPane.showInputDialog(null, “Prompt”);
Next you will need to prompt for the number of garments.
We receive input from the dialog as a string, in order to convert strings to an integer we need the
Integer wrapper class and the parseInt method (text pg 347 or pg 370 8
th Edition).
int anInteger =
Integer.parseInt(JOptionPane.showInputDialog(null, “Prompt”));
After reading in and converting the number of garments to an integer you can use this value to
calculate the charge for the order using your method:
charge = calculateCharge(garments);
Output the receipt using JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, “text”)
To format your output in the text argument in showMessagedialog you can use:
String.format(“Format string”,args)
See the example below for using place holders to format strings, integers and doubles.
customerName, garments, charge)
is for a string.
%d is for an integer.
%.2f is for a floating point number (including double) formatted to two decimal places.
n will produce a newline and you will need to add extra text to the format string to match the
output above.

COIT11222, 2019 Term One – Page 10 of 11
When the N orders have been entered you will output the average number of garments per order and
the total charges collected both to two decimal places, you can use a similar format string as above.
