    Default Help with creating a dice rolling program in Java

    I need to Write a program that creates a Dice object.
    Your program will involve two separate classes in different files:
    One class for the main method
    Another class describing the Dice object
    The Dice class should have fived methods (and a single class variable for storing the number on the dice):
     A constructor method with the same name as the class
     A roll( ) method for rolling the dice
     A getValue( ) method for returning the value showing on the dice
     An isEven( ) method which checks if the value is even or odd
     An isHigh( ) method which checks if the value is high or low
    The main application should do the following:
    1. Create a Dice object
    2. Roll the dice every time the user hits enter
    3. Print out the new value showing on the dice
    4. Print out whether the value is even or odd, high or low

    So far I have this. Just wondering if someone could help me with the remaining methods

    import java.util.Scanner*;

    public class Dice {

    public static void main(String[] args) {

    Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in);
    Dice dice1 = new Dice();

    System.out.println("dice1 is " + dice1.roll());
    }
    }
    public class Dice{

    int roll(){

    return 1 + (int)(Math.random()* 6)+1;
    }

    Ask a specific question, get a specific answer. You posted an assignment and some code, but what are you having trouble with?

    Hello - I was interested in this problem and am new to objects so I looked up an article (in comments) then adapted your code somewhat. Did your code actually roll and produce output or was it "stuck"? Anyway, this will do some of what the specs wanted but not all as I wanted to try some other stuff. That article is good. Post what you came up with as I am interested.

    Well done. The working code, outside sources and explanatory comments are definitely gone. Although I don't think the OP would ever had seen it (he seemed to have left a week ago) there would have remained the possibility that other people interested in the problem might have. Your swift action prevents this later possibility from ever occurring.
