CourseMarks Application: Can Someone Please Help With A Java App...?

P: n/a
A while back, I had a program that I was working on, while taking Java
in a Web Design & Development course -- this was back in 1999 -- not
having the mindset of a programmer I failed that part of the course
misrably. I had to do the following program, but you can see why I
failed, I only managed to write to lines of code. I am wondering if
there is anyone who can write it to the following criteria, maybe even
make it graphical...I am hoping to try and write an XML backend to it
like I wanted to do in 1999; unfortunately I lost the code that
someone was nice enought to supply after I failed that part of the 6
month course...so if anyone can help please let me know. I want to try
learning Java again, but it would be cool to see the following in
working order again. If you're wondering why I still have the
following, I just found it again while going through my Experts
Exchange postings.
import java.awt.*;

public class CourseMarks extends Applet {

Of course I think this is wrong, but here is what I need done:

Define a class (data structure) to represent the people taking a
course. For each person, you should record their name, their mid-term
mark, their final mark, and any other information you think is
relevant (hint: how do you find all the people in the class?)

A) The Applet/Program must be called CourseMarks

B) Write the class in Java

C) Create a variable called courseList to record students of a
specific course, then write code to initialise it with information
about three students.

D) Letter grades are to be awarded to the people taking the course,
and you have to write a method to translate the final mark to a letter
grade for each person. Letter grades are awarded as follows: 0-49.99 =
F, 50-59.99 = E, 60-69.99 = D, 70-79.99 = C, 80-89.99 = B, 90-94.99 =
A, 95 and up = A+. Write a method in Java and show how you would
invoke it on courseList

E) Write a method to compute the class average for the mid-term mark
(hint: follow your links), and show how you would invoke it on
courseList.

So you're going to write an XML backend? In Java? If you can do that,
then why can't you finish this simple program?
import java.awt.*;

public class CourseMarks extends Applet {


That's pretty close man. Almost there.

Seriously. Maybe you're looking to *hire* someone to do the work for
you? Perhaps you should try e-lance.com, or some similar service.

LOL.

I was wonderring what response this post
actually deserved, and I think you got
it in a nutshell.

The bit I love *best* though,
about the original post was..

"A) The Applet/Program must be called CourseMarks"

Like ..5 years after failing the course,
it *must* be called CourseMarks.
I see, ..sure. ;-)

Wow, you've got serious problems. You're not encouraging anyone to help
you.

What? You have still got your coding to do...
you do not deserve a mark at all for getting others to do your coursework.
Go do it yourself, or de-register from your course. Just imagine getting
employed by a company, proving yourself with this qualification... It is
fraud.
