    JAVA ----- NEED HELP!!


    Some specific problems I am having trouble with are:

    1.) Define a method Hypotenuse that calculates the hypotenuse of a right
    triangle when 2 sides are given. The method should take two arguments of
    type Double and return the hypotenuse as Double. Incorporate this method
    into an applet that reads integer values for side1 and side2 from JTextFields
    and performs the calculation with the hypotenuse method.

    If you can help me out with this I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks--

    Thanks

    What is your specific problem...this sounds more along the lines of, "Do
    this for me".

    Well.. my problem is that I need to see examples before I can write the program...
    I am a novice, and no examples like this are in the book---

    Re: JAVA ----- NEED HELP!!

    There are several sites out there with examples. Just go to www.google.com
    and do a search there. A couple of sites that may help are:
    http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/index.html and http://www.jars.com

    A general function works something like this:

    access_modifier return_type function_name (parameter_type parameter_name,
    parameter_type parameter_name, n...) {
    return value;
    }

    An example might be:
    public int Addition (int v1, int v2) {
    int sum;
    sum = v1 + v2;
    return sum;
    }

    Once you have a more specific question then I will do my best to help.

    Good Luck!

    If you are using the Dietel book, then the program you need to use is the
    second one in the second edition book. 90% of the work is already done for
    you. It seems like agony when you first learn it but that's why he gave
    you that assignment and not something easier. I just learned java this trimester
    at school and let me reassure you, it takes five minutes to do this problem
    once you are used to java. Actually, your problem is not completely presented.
    Return the result to what; obviously he means return it to the status bar
    but this is supposed to be stated in the problem. In reality, the result
    could be returned to another textbox or a sequential file or another applet,
    but you aren't there yet.
