BMIS 212 Week 5 Programming Assignment
Exercise 7.14 (Variable-Length Argument List) Write an application that calculates the product of a series of integers that are passed to method product using a variable-length argument list. Test your method with several calls, each with a different number of arguments.
Exercise 7.19 (Airline Reservations System) A small airline has just purchased a computer for its new automated reservations system. You’ve been asked to develop the new system. You’re to write an application to assign seats on each flight of the airline’s only plane (capacity: 10 seats).
Your application should display the following alternatives: “Please type 1 for First Class” and “Please type 2 for Economy.” If the user types 1, your application should assign a seat in the first class section (seats 1–5). If the user types 2, your application should assign a seat in the economy section (seats 6–10). You application should then display a boarding pass indicating the person’s seat number and whether it’s in the firstclass or economy section of the plane.
Use a 1 dimensional array of primitive type Boolean to represent the seating chart of the plane. Initialize all the elements of the array to false to indicate that all the seats are empty. As each seat is assigned, set the corresponding element of the array to true to indicate that the seat is no longer available.
Your application should never assign a seat that has already been assigned. When the economy section is full, your application should ask the person if it’s acceptable to be placed in the first class section (and vice versa). If yes, make the appropriate seat assignments. If no, display the message “Next flight leaves in 3 hours.”
Exercise 8.4 (Rectangle Class) Create a class Rectangle with attributes length and width, each of which defaults to 1. Provide methods that calculate the rectangle’s perimeter and area. It has set and get methods for both length and width. The set methods should verify that length and width are each floating-point numbers larger than 0.0 and less than 20.0. Write a program to test class Rectangle.
