Lab Assignment #7 Activities Solution

1. Answer the questions in the spaces provided or attach a sheet with your answers (be sure to label questions for proper credit) (2 points each, unless noted otherwise):
Your Answer
a. What is the term used to describe a class whose contents cannot be changed?
b. How can you access a class variable that is hidden by a local variable with the same name?
c. What is the name of the special type of aggregation relationship where there is an ownership between two objects?
d. What type of ordering relationship is used to represent the insertion and removal of stack elements?

e. What are the method names to:
• add an element to the stack
• remove an element from the stack
f. Identify the three ‘pillars’ of object oriented programming. (3 points)
g. What is the name of the relationship between superclasses and subclasses? What is the Java keyword used to represent this relationship in the class definition?
h. What Java keyword is used to refer to a superclass object from a subclass instance method?
i. How does an overloaded method differ from an overridden method? Identify the differences between method signatures in your answer. (4 points)
j. A declared type is used to dynamically bind method implementation at compile time (True or False)?
k. What is the keyword used to create a class that cannot have any subclasses?

2. On your own, create a Java program to solve the Chapter 11 Programming Exercise 11.3 (Subclasses of Account Class) on page 442 of your textbook with the following additional programming specifications:
• The Account class should be in a separate file from the test program (TestAccount) Below are modifications from the previous lab assignment: (5 points)
o The annualInterestRate is shared by all account objects; it should be stored as a static class variable and initialized to the rate given in the textbook. You should change the access from the previous lab to protected so that it is accessible within the subclasses. (from previous lab)
o Class members previously declared private in Lab #6 should be modified to protected so they are accessible to any subclasses.
o In place of the getMonthlyInterestRate, include a method getMonthlyInterest that returns the amount of monthly interest for the current account balance. (from previous lab)
o The protected Date object can be formatted for use in an output string: (from previous lab)
o You should have void methods for deposit and withdraw that will be overridden (if necessary) in the subclass methods. The deposit and withdrawal amounts will be passed to these methods and the balance updated accordingly.
o A protected (this was private in Lab #6) String/StringBuilder data field named name for the account holder’s first and last name (default empty String).
• Add the following subclasses of the Account class: (this is new for Lab #7) (20 points)
o CheckingAccount and SavingsAccount account (see textbook for specific description of each). Note: The CheckingAccount has the ability to withdraw more than the balance (i.e. overdraft amount—this should be an additional private data member within the CheckingAccount class) whereas the SavingsAccount cannot have more than the balance withdrawn. The differing subclass withdraw logic should be implemented in an overriden method of the superclass.
o The subclasses should use appropriate calls to the superclass within the constructors, toString, and any other methods that are dependent upon the superclass members.

• Add the following logic to the TestAccount program: (this can be taken and/or modified from Lab #6) (4 points)
o The user should be prompted to input their name and beginning account balance. There should be separate prompts for their first and last name which are then concatenated and stored in a newly created CheckingAccount or SavingsAccount object.
o The initial account information is then displayed to the console by overriding the toString() method for each user created class and subclass. Use the static String format method to create the formatted string for output in the following format: (Hint: Determine the common output and include that in the Account class. Put the output specific to the Checking or Savings account in the appropriate class. Use the super keyword to invoke the superclass method to generate the common output.)
Account Type: Checking
ID: 1122
Created: 03/03/11
Owner: Sam Williams
Annual Rate: 4.50%
Balance: 550.00
Account Type: Savings
ID: 2211
Created: 03/03/11
Owner: Sam Williams
Annual Rate: 4.50%
Balance: 24,000.00
o The user has the ability to withdraw or deposit an amount from the account under the previously identified withdrawal requirements stipulated for each account type. Upon successful completion of a deposit or withdrawal, the amount deposited or withdrawn should be displayed with the adjusted balance, for example:
Deposit: 50.00
Current Balance: 550.00
Withdraw: 50.00
Current Balance: 500.00
• Complete the following programming activities:
a. Create the source code files:,,, and Add a block comment at the top of the file to identify your name, file, date, class, assignment, and short description of the program. (4 points total, 1 point each)
Output from Account toString() method
Output from Account toString() method
Output from CheckingAccount toString() method
Output from SavingsAccount toString() method

b. Compile the source code until no errors are found. The Java bytecode files Account.class, CheckingAccount.class, SavingsAccount.class and TestAccounts.class should be created.
• Common Errors:
c. Run the Java bytecode and observe the results.
d. Attach a hardcopy printout of your source code.
e. Attach a hardcopy printout of your sample output. Include output for test cases that show the following (label each appropriately): (6 points)
• Savings Account
o deposit
o withdraw amount less than balance
o withdraw amount greater than balance
• Checking Account
o deposit
o withdraw amount less than balance
o withdraw amount greater than balance, but less than overdraft amount
o withdraw amount greater than balance and overdraft amount
f. Attach a software generated hardcopy output of the UML class diagram for the Account, CheckingAccount and SavingsAccount classes. Remember to include access specifiers for properties and methods. (6 points)
