    Default Football Betting System

    Hi there I am doing an assignment on Java Programming and need any help on this case study:

    You have been asked to develop a Football Betting System (FBS). The FBS should work as follows:
    You have to create a database containing gaming data (20 team names and team Rating). The program should:
    a. Randomly extract the team names and team rating and put two of each against other;
    b. According to the difference in the rating, the program should show the user the probability of the result (1,X,2) and how much money he would win for each game,
    c. Allow the user to bet on the games by choosing either 1,X, or 2 near each game;
    d. Show the results of the actual random scores and the output them next to the userís predictions;
    e. Finally calculate the total prize the user won according to the number of bets he won
    Hint - Keep in mind that every difference point in the rating is equal to 1.50 Euro difference in betting. The last amount of money that can be won from a bet is 1.20c

    Any help will be greatly appreciated

    Thanks

    Next step will be for you to design the program you need and write some code.
    Come back here when you have problems.

    Teams teams[]=new team[20];
    teams[0]=(Arsenal,8);

    teams[2]=(Blackburn,6);
    teams[3]=(Bolton,6);
    teams[4]=(Chelsea,8);
    teams[5]=(Everton,7);
    teams[6]=(Fulham,6);
    teams[7]=(Liverpool,8);
    teams[8]=(ManchesterCity,8);
    teams[9]=(ManchesterUnited,9);
    teams[10]=(Newcastle,7);

    teams[13]=(Stoke,6);
    teams[14]=(Sunderland,6);
    teams[15]=(Swansea,4);
    teams[16]=(Tottenham,7);
    teams[17]=(WBA,5);
    teams[18]=(Wigan,5);
    teams[19]=(Wolves,5);

    public string probability(team a,team b){
    if(a.getrating==b.getrating)
    return "x";
    if(a.getrating>b.getrating)
    return"1";
    else
    return"2"
    }

    team t1;
    team t2;
    int t1goals=-1
    int t2goals=-1

    java.util.Random

    private void generate random score(){
    Random r=new random();
    t1goals=r.next int(7);
    t2goals=r.next int(7);

    Regarding the code you typed in:
    You'd need a definition for the Teams class.
    The syntax is not valid. You create Team objects with: new Team("name", rating)

    Do you have any ideas of what the program should do to implement the steps you listed in post #1?

    public void setName(String name) {
    this.name = name;
    }

    //returns the rating of the team
    public int getRating() {
    return rating;
    }

    // sets the rating of the team to the new parameter
    public void setRating(int rating) {
    this.rating = rating;
    }

    //toString method to return whenever a team is called
    public String toString() {
    return "Team " + name + ", rating = " + rating;
    }
    }



    public static void main(String args[])
    Teams teams[]=new team[20];

    public string probability(team a,team b){

    return"1";
    else
    return"2"
    }

    team t1;
    team t2;
    int t1goals=-1
    int t2goals=-1

    java.util.Random

    private void generate random score(){
    Random r=new random();
    t1goals=r.next int(7);
    t2goals=r.next int(7);
    }

    public BetResult getResult() {
    generateRandomScore();//generate actual score
    //returning 1,2 or X according to actual result
    String res;
    if (t1Goals == t2Goals) {
    res = "X";
    } else if (t1Goals > t2Goals) {
    res = "1";
    } else {
    res = "2";
    }
    return new BetResult(res, t1Goals, t2Goals);
    }

    Please wrap your posted code in code tags to preserver formatting. See: BB Code List - Java Forums

    Did you read my comments in post#4 about the syntax for creating Team objects?

    What errors do you get when you compile your program? Please copy and paste them here.
