    Default Single Class graphs

    How can graphs be represented in a single class?
    I know how to make a graph with several classes such as Vertex which defines the vertex, Stack which defines the Stack, Graph which lays out the graph and includes any searching algorithm, and a Main class which creates vertexes, and edges and does the search etc. though I would really like to know if there is any simpler way to create a graph, having multiple classes is not allowed on TopCoder where I could use a graph to solve a problem.

    Default Re: Single Class graphs

    Suggesting that a Java program - any Java program, but especially a Java program that involves graphics - be written with the use of a single class is just nonsense. Since that's how you're interpreting the problem (at least, that's how I interpret your question), either I'm not understanding what you're asking or you're misinterpreting the requirements.

    See if you can clarify the question, perhaps post it here.

    On topcoder there are many problems that need to be solved by graphs, and since I can only create one class for a particular problem how can I solve these problems.

    a) Single file or single class? Are inner classes allowed? b) There are many ways to store a Graph, some of which are completely independent of object oriented programming (such as an adjacency matrix)

    Interesting, I have never used inner classes, definitely something I need to learn more about.
