  2. In Topic: Basic do-while loop question

    Posted 7 Apr 2015

    You were right with the ||. Those are your exit conditions. However, a common "gotcha" about comparing strings is that you cannot compare them for equality with == and !=. That compares the addresses in memory, not the actual string values.

    What you should use is this: itemName.equals("Shield") || ... || ...

    The same goes for anything that isn't a primitive type. (int, double, boolean, etc.)

    The convention for objects is that the type name starts with a capital letter. Notice that the primitives are all lower case.

    Hope this helps! :)

    Edit: Dang you guys are quick...
  3. In Topic: Spring - Summer 2015 Fitness

    Posted 7 Apr 2015

    The last few years kinda hit me hard and I never really noticed until recently.

    This was my previous situation:
    • In college, walking to every class every day, marching band during the fall semester
    • Eating semi-healthy
    • Getting some random exercise here and there

    My current situation (effective May 2012):
    • Sit at a desk all day at work
    • Come home, sit on the couch or at my desk
    • Eat food that's unbelievably shitty for me

    I've put on just under 30 pounds since I graduated close to 3 years ago. I now weigh about 185 pounds. I was at about 160 at graduation. A non-strenuous walk of a few miles every day would probably do wonders for me. Also, I'm trying to cut down on soda. That's hard. I basically had an IV of it in college.
  4. In Topic: Help with Java Errors

    Posted 7 Apr 2015

    For the error in the equals method in your Player class, you're trying to use otherName as a variable, but there is no record of that variable being declared. What you probably meant was this--return name.equals(otherPlayer.getName());.

    Also, ndc85430 is right, you have already called the constructor above those lines using new.

    I am a bit confused as to why you only have one player object. Wouldn't you need two player objects to play a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock? Otherwise it will only track wins for one player.

    Hope this helps! :)
  5. In Topic: Inheritance Problem

    Posted 31 Mar 2015

    You need to remove the radius field from the Cylinder class. That one is overriding the one that Cylinder inherits from Circle, which is the one you're initializing using the super call. The radius variable that the Cylinder methods are using (the duplicate one) gets initialized to 0.
