  1. In Topic: having trouble making my own exceptions

    Posted 28 Apr 2016

    Exceptions can be pretty simple if you want them to be:

    public class TooSmellyException extends Exception {

    Then you can throw it with code such as:

    if (bo > 9000) {
      throw new TooSmellyException();

    Any catching them is easy too:

    try {
      if (bo > 9000) {
        throw new TooSmellyException();
    } catch (TooSmellyException e)  {

    Exceptions like this are so quick and easy to code that there is no excuse not to use custom exceptions in your applications, and especially in your libraries.

    Sometimes you'll want to add a constructor that takes a string message, or one that takes the cause exception but they're not necessary all the time. If you're struggling, get used to the simple case first.
  2. In Topic: Setting minimum health for enemies in Text Based Game

    Posted 28 Apr 2016

    I was with you until near the end.

    			int min = 40;
    			int max = 100;
    			int health = rand.nextInt(max - min + 1) + min; 
  3. In Topic: What should I do next? feels like going nowhere...

    Posted 25 Apr 2016

    Another great problem site is

    Maybe you need a project:

    Maybe a different language would help you see the programming landscape differently:

    Or maybe you would like to learn about different kinds of program (e.g. console, desktop gui, smartphone app, browser plugin, web service, distributed, etc.)
  4. In Topic: Loop question

    Posted 24 Apr 2016

    Glad you could fix it. :)
  5. In Topic: Need help with loops.

    Posted 24 Apr 2016

    Draggonoth, your solution is very similar to mine:

    public class Calendar {
    	public static void main(String[] args) {
    		printMonth("January", 31);
    		printMonth("February", 28);
    		printMonth("March", 31);
    		printMonth("April", 30);
    		printMonth("May", 31);
    		printMonth("June", 30);
    		printMonth("July", 31);
    		printMonth("August", 31);
    		printMonth("September", 30);
    		printMonth("October", 31);
    		printMonth("November", 30);
    		printMonth("December", 31);
    	private static void printMonth(String name, int days) {
    		System.out.print(name + ": 1");
    		for(int i = 2; i <= days; i++)
    			System.out.print(", " + i);

    Thanks for Your Precious Input. I Found the character counting thing very bedazzling. I have the code to it that I wrote Myself, but it took me Long to find a subtle Algorithm :)

    Cheers! The next one is in progress, but I'm having to learn and write some programs first. It's going to take a little time...

    "Purple DIC-headed Warrior" doesn't quite apply now that you got the promotion. Well done!
