Programming with methods and classes Chapter 7 Fall 2005 CS 101 Aaron Bloomfield 1 Static vs. non-static 2 Methods Instance (or member) method Operates on a object (i.e., and instance of the class)

String s = new String("Help every cow reach its " + "potential!"); int n = s.length(); Instance method Class (i.e. static) method Service provided by a class and it is not associated with a particular object String t = String.valueOf(n); Class method 3 Variables

Instance variable and instance constants Attribute of a particular object Usually a variable Point p = new Point(5, 5); int px = p.x; Instance variable Class variables and constants Collective information that is not specific to individual objects of the class Usually a constant

Color favoriteColor = Color.MAGENTA; double favoriteNumber = Math.PI - Math.E; Class constants 4 static and non-static rules Member/instance (i.e. non-static) fields and methods can ONLY be accessed by the object name Class (i.e. static) fields and methods can be accessed by Either the class name or the object name

Non-static methods can refer to BOTH class (i.e. static) variables and member/instance (i.e. non-static) variables Class (i.e. static) methods can ONLY access class (i.e. static) variables 5 Static vs. non-static Consider the following code: public class Staticness { private int a = 0; private static int b = 0; public void increment() { a++;

b++; } public String toString() { return "(a=" + a + ",b=" + b + ")"; } } 6 Static vs. non-static And the code to run it: public class StaticTest { public static void main (String[] args) { Staticness s = new Staticness(); Staticness t = new Staticness(); s.increment(); t.increment(); t.increment();

System.out.println (s); System.out.println (t); } } 7 Static vs. non-static Execution of the code Output is: (a=1,b=3) (a=2,b=3) 8

Static vs. non-static: memory diagram Staticness s = new Staticness t = new s.increment(); t.increment(); t.increment(); System.out.println System.out.println Staticness(); Staticness(); (s); (t); s

The value is copied to the method Any changes to the parameter are forgotten when the method returns 25 Java parameter passing Consider the following code: y 5 7

x 5 static void foobar (int y) { y = 7; formal parameter } public static void main (String[] args) { actual parameter int x = 5; foobar (x); System.out.println(x); } What gets printed?

26 Java parameter passing Consider the following code: y 7" static void foobar (String y) { y = 7; } x 5" formal parameter

public static void main (String[] args) { String x = 5; actual parameter foobar (x); System.out.println(x); } What gets printed? 27 Java parameter passing Consider the following code: static void foobar (Rectangle y) { y.setWidth (10);

formal parameter } public static void main (String[] args) { Rectangle x = new Rectangle(); actual parameter foobar (x); System.out.println(x.getWidth()); } y What gets printed? x width width= =10

0 28 Java parameter passing Consider the following code: static void foobar (Rectangle y) { y = new Rectangle(); y.setWidth (10); formal parameter } public static void main (String[] args) { Rectangle x = new Rectangle(); actual parameter foobar (x); System.out.println(x.getWidth()); } width

width= =10 0 y What gets printed? x width = 0 29 Java parameter passing The value of the actual parameter gets copied to the formal

parameter This is called pass-by-value C/C++ is also pass-by-value Other languages have other parameter passing types Any changes to the formal parameter are forgotten when the method returns However, if the parameter is a reference to an object, that object can be modified Similar to how the object a final reference points to can

be modified 30 Method invocations Actual parameters provide information that is otherwise unavailable to a method When a method is invoked Java sets aside memory for that particular invocation Called the activation record Activation record stores, among other things, the values of the formal parameters

Formal parameters initialized with values of the actual parameters After initialization, the actual parameters and formal parameters are independent of each other Flow of control is transferred temporarily to that method 31 Value parameter passing demonstration public class ParameterDemo { public static double add(double x, double y) { double result = x + y; return result;

} public static double multiply(double x, double y) { x = x * y; return x; } public static void main(String[] args) { double a = 8, b = 11; double sum = add(a, b); System.out.println(a + " + " + b + " = " + sum); double product = multiply(a, b); System.out.println(a + " * " + b + " = " + product); } } 32 Value parameter passing demonstration

48 Casting 49 Casting Weve seen casting before: double d = (double) 3; int x = (int) d; Aside: duplicating an object

String s = foo; String t = s.clone(); Causes an error: inconvertible types (Causes another error, but we will ignore that one) What caused this? 50 Casting, take 2 .clone() returns an object of class Object (sic)

More confusion: You can also have an object of class Class Thus, you can have an Object class and a Class object Got it? We know its a String (as it cloned a String) Thus, we need to tell Java its a String via casting Revised code: String s = foo;

String t = (String) s.clone(); Still causes that other error, but we are still willfully 51 ignoring it Casting, take 3 That other error is because String does not have a .clone() method Not all classes do! We just havent seen any classes that do have .clone() yet

Check in the documentation if the object you want to copy has a .clone() method A class that does: java.util.Vector Vector s = new Vector(); Vector t = s.clone(); Vector u = (Vector) s.clone(); Causes the inconvertible types error 52

Casting, take 4 What happens with the following code? Vector v = new Vector(); String s = (String) v; Java will encounter a compile-time error inconvertible types What happens with the following code?

Vector v = new Vector(); String s = (String) v.clone(); Java will encounter a RUN-time error ClassCastException 53 New 2005 demotivatiors! 54 Wrapper classes

55 What about adding variables to a Vector? The add method takes an Object as a parameter public void add (Object o) { Although we havent seen it yet, this means you can add any object you want to the vector Primitive types (i.e. variables) are not objects How can they be added?

The solution: wrapper classes! 56 The Integer wrapper class This is how you add an int variable to a Vector: int x = 5; Integer i = new Integer(x); vector.add (i); // Integer j = (Integer) v.get(0); int y = j.intValue();

Pretty annoying syntax well see how to get around it in a bit 57 More on wrapper classes All the primitive types have wrapper classes Usually, the names are just the capitalized version of the type I.e. Double for double, Byte for byte, etc. Two exceptions: int and char int has Integer

char has Character 58 More on wrapper classes Consider this code: int x = 5; vector.add (x); // int y = vector.get(0); Does this code work? It shouldnt

As we are adding a variable (not an object) to a vector But it does work! Why? 59 Auto-boxing Java 1.5 will automatically wrap a primitive value into its wrapper class when needed And automatically unwrap a wrapper object into the primitive value So Java translates the previous code into the following:

int x = 5; vector.add (new Integer(x)); // int y = ((Integer)vector.get(0)).intValue(); This is called autoboxing And auto-unboxing (unauto-boxing?) This does not work in Java 1.4 or before 60 More on auto-boxing Consider the following code:

Double d = 7.5; Double e = 6.5; Double f = d + e; System.println (f); This is doing a lot of auto-boxing (and auto-unboxing): Double d = new Double(7.5); Double e = new Double(6.5); Double f = new Double(d.doubleValue() + e.doubleValue()); System.println (f); 61 Todays demotivators 62

Triple.java 63 Task Triple.java Represent objects with three integer attributes public Triple() Constructs a default Triple value representing three zeros public Triple(int a, int b, int c)

Constructs a representation of the values a, b, and c public int getValue(int i) Returns the i-th element of the associated Triple public void setValue(int i, int value) Sets the i-th element of the associated Triple to value 64 Task Triple.java

Represent objects with three integer attributes public String toString() Returns a textual representation of the associated Triple public Object clone() Returns a new Triple whose representation is the same as the associated Triple public boolean equals(Object v)

Returns whether v is equivalent to the associated Triple 65 Triple.java implementation // Triple(): default constructor public Triple() { this (0, 0, 0); } The new Triple object (the this object) is constructed by invoking the Triple constructor expecting three int values as actual parameters public Triple() { int a = 0; int b = 0; int c = 0; this (a, b, c); }

Illegal this() invocation. A this() invocation must begin its statement body 66 Triple.java implementation // Triple(): default constructor public Triple() { this (0,0,0); } // Triple(): specific constructor public Triple(int a, int b, int c) { setValue(1, a); setValue(2, b); setValue(3, c); } // Triple(): specific constructor - alternative definition public Triple(int a, int b, int c) { this.setValue(1, a); this.setValue(2, b);

this.setValue(3, c); 67 } Triple.java implementation Class Triple like every other Java class Automatically an extension of the standard class Object Class Object specifies some basic behaviors common to all objects These behaviors are said to be inherited Three of the inherited Object methods

toString() clone() equals() 68 Recommendation Classes should override implementation) toString() clone() equals()

(i.e., provide a class-specific By doing so, the programmer-expected behavior can be provided System.out.println(p); // displays string version of // object referenced by p System.out.println(q); // displays string version of // object referenced by q 69

Triple.java toString() implementation public int int int String toString() { a = getValue(1); b = getValue(2); c = getValue(3); return "Triple[" + a + ", " + b + ", " + c+ "]"; } Consider Triple t1 = new Triple(10, 20, 30); System.out.println(t1); Triple t2 = new Triple(8, 88, 888);

int Object clone() { a = getValue(1); b = getValue(2); c = getValue(3); return new Triple(a, b, c); } Consider Triple t1 = new Triple(9, 28, 29); Triple t2 = (Triple) t1.clone(); Must cast! System.out.println("t1 = " + t1); System.out.println("t2 = " + t2);

Produces Triple[9, 28, 29] Triple[9, 28, 29] 72 Triple.java equals() implementation public boolean equals(Object v) { if (v instanceof Triple) { int a1 = getValue(1); int b1 = getValue(2); int c1 = getValue(3); Triple int a2 int b2 int c2

t = = = Cant be equal unless its a Triple = (Triple) v; t.getValue(1); t.getValue(2); t.getValue(3); return (a1 == a2) && (b1 == b2) && (c1 == c2); } else { return false; }

Yet more new demotivators!!! 79 Scope 81 Whats wrong with this code? class Scope { public static void f(int a) { int b = 1; // local definition System.out.println(a); // print 10 a = b; // update a System.out.println(a); // print 1 }

public static void main(String[] args) { int i = 10; // local definition f(i); // invoking f() with i as parameter System.out.println(a); System.out.println(b); } } 82 Variables a and b do not exist in the scope of method main() Program demo Scope.java (just the compilation) 83

Blocks and scope rules A block is a list of statements nested within braces A method body is a block A block can be placed anywhere a statement would be legal A block contained within another block is a nested block A formal parameter is considered to be defined at the beginning of the method body A local variable can be used only in a statement or nested blocks

that occurs after its definition An identifier name can be reused as long as the blocks containing the duplicate declarations are not nested one within the other Name reuse within a method is permitted as long as the reuse occurs in distinct blocks 84 Legal class Scope2 { public static void main(String[] args) { int a = 10; f(a); System.out.println(a);

} public static void f(int a) { System.out.println(a); a = 1; System.out.println(a); } } 85 Legal but not recommended public void g() { { int j = 1; System.out.println(j); } { int j = 10; System.out.println(j); }

{ char j = '@'; System.out.println(j); } } // define j // print 1 // define a different j // print 10 // define a different j // print '@' 86 Program demo

Scope2.java (just the compilation) 87 Whats the output? for (int i = 0; i < 3; ++i) { int j = 0; ++j; System.out.println(j); } The scope of variable j is the body of the for loop j is not in scope when ++i j is not in scope when i < 3 are evaluated j is redefined and re-initialized with each loop iteration 88 Overloading 89 Overloading Have seen it often before with operators int i = 11 + 28; double x = 6.9 + 11.29; String s = "April " + "June";

Java also supports method overloading Several methods can have the same name Useful when we need to write methods that perform similar tasks but different parameter lists Method name can be overloaded as long as its signature is different from the other methods of its class Difference in the names, types, number, or order of the parameters 90 Legal public static int min(int a, int b, int c) { return Math.min(a, Math.min(b, c)); } public static int min(int a, int b, int c, int d) {

return Math.min(a, min(b, c, d)); } 91 Legal public static int power(int x, int n) { int result = 1; for (int i = 1; i <= n; ++i) { result *= x; } return result; } public static double power(double x, int n) { double result = 1; for (int i = 1; i <= n; ++i) { result *= x; } return result; } 92 Whats the output? public static void f(int a, int b) { System.out.println(a + b); } public static void f(double a, double b) { System.out.println(a - b); } public static void main(String[] args) { int i = 19; double x = 54.0; f(i, x); } 93 Summary

94 Summary of key points The this keyword Can be used to call another constructor Must be the FIRST thing called Can be used as a reference to the current object Static vs. non-static

A static variable means there is only one such variable regardless of how many objects have been declared A static method does not care about the state of the object Various methods we may want to override: clone() toString() equals() 95 Using random numbers
