    Default Ryder Cup 2014 Application

    Hi there,

    I am relatively new to Java Programming and have an assignment in college to write an application based around the Ryder Cup 2014...

    A part I am struggling with is the section referring to the course itself.

    I have information on all holes and want to store them in an array to be called on when the user wishes.
    eg Hole 1
    Par 4 450 yards
    tee shot :........
    Hazards yes/no

    Is it possible to assign a value of a little paragraph like this to members of an array??


    Any help greatly appreciated

    Thanks Stephen.

    Welcome to the forum! Please read this topic to learn how to post code in code or highlight tags and other useful info for new members.

    If the element of the array is an object of a class that has those attributes, like an instance of RyderCupHole. E.g.:

    RyderCupHole[] golfHoles = new RyderCupHole[36];

    Where the class RyderCupHole includes instance variables for each of those attributes you listed.

    Hi Greg thanks for the quick reply,

    That makes sense alright, the thing is that the information is a mixture of ints and Strings, Im currently looking at ArrayLists am I thinking in the right direction even?

    The mixture of data types does not matter as long as they're properly defined as attributes/fields/instance variables of the class.

    An ArrayList would also be an excellent tool for containing the objects. We can't know what you're allowed or able to use until you tell us.
