Hi everybody I'm new to java programming and our teacher gave us the following project.
I don't know where nor how to start. I appreciate your help.
The project is :
The project is to develop the game Translate the Word .... It is asking user to translate a word proposed to and check if the input response is correct. At the end of the game score will be calculated and displayed.
Game Play :
1 - Ask the user to specify , through the console , its name and the number of words to offer . It is up to you to handle exceptions (eg number of words greater than the number you provided )
2 - Recover user response ( the word translated ) and check whether to continue . (eg you want to continue (y / n)) after each proposal.
3 - compare the response of the user with that which is preset for the word in question .
4 - Show the score at the end ( or at the breakpoint ) .
5 - Save the file in a user name , the score , the number of questions and the start date and end of the game played .
Some notes to consider :
1 - The language (eg, English - French , English - Arabic , etc. . ): It is up to you to specify the language adopted in the game and inform the user of your choice.
2 - The word bank to offer : It is up to you to develop the appropriate means to get the words to propose to the user. That said , the words and their translations can be retrieved :
a. a TXT file
b . an XML file . ( Tutorials DOM and SAX )
c . CSV file ( OpenCSV Tutorial )
d. a database ( Tutorial Access)
e . through APIs (eg Wordnet and google translate etc . ) .
f . a combination of the previous options a, bc , d and / or e . (eg words stored in a txt file and answers retrieved from the api google translate)
g . etc. .
Examples of files and databases are attached to the project statement . You will need to add one or more external libraries to your project. Click here for details on adding external libraries to Netbeans .
3 - A user will be associated with the question score if he can translate the word correctly. The score for each question can be calculated based on the number of words / questions to be proposed .
In this project you will need at least :
a class called Question to encapsulate the word and its translations and provide all necessary methods to manipulate the object type Question.
an interface called IParser to make extensible project. Any class that implements IParser is a parser file (XML , TXT , CSV , etc.). / Database. In your project there will be a single class that implements IParser and will be used to retrieve words and their translations
Add the ability to store the questions and answers of the user on the hard disk. Make the class Serializable Question
