    Default gottaCatchEmAll

    Hello, my name is Fade and I am trying to practice with making classes, getters and setters and thaught up this code. Its supposed to get a random number x and a random boolean caughtOne; and weigh it against your pound test and tell you if you got a fish or not and how many pounds it was.

     
    package Practice;
     
     
    public class Fish {
    	Random r = new Random();
    	public static final int linetest = 8;
    	private int x = 0;
    	private boolean caughtOne = false;
     
    	// x = r.nextInt(10)+1;
    	// boolean caughtOne1 = r.nextBoolean();
     
    	public void fish(int x, boolean caughtOne) {
    		this.x = x;
    		this.caughtOne = caughtOne;
    	}
     
    	public void setX(int x) {
    		x = r.nextInt(10) + 1;
    	}
     
    	public void setcaughtOne(Boolean caughtOne) {
    		caughtOne = r.nextBoolean();
    	}
     
    	int getX() {
    		return x;
    	}
     
    	Boolean getcaughtOne() {
    		return caughtOne;
    	}
     
    	public void takeTheBait() {
    		if (this.caughtOne == true) {
     
    		} else {
     
    		}
    	}
     
    	public void gotIt(int linetest) {
    		if (this.x > linetest) {
    			System.out.println("you broke the line");
    		} else
    			System.out.println("you caught an " + x + "lbs fish");
     
    	}
     
    }
     
     
    public class Fishing {
    	public static void main(String[] args) {
    		Fish fishy = new Fish();
    		fishy.fish(0,false);
     
    	}
    }

    Just wondering but what IDK are you using. I know in eclipse there is a way you can have it generate the getter and setters for you, its pretty nice.

    You're welcome, but Norm fixed your code tags.

    I still don't know what your question is, if you have one.

    I assume therefore that it is not doing what you'd hoped. What is it doing? What would you prefer it do? If you're getting error messages, post the entire text of the message.

    It's unreasonable of you to expect us to run your uncommented code, figure out what it's supposed to do, fix errors, debug it, and explain to you what's wrong and what you should do to fix it. You tell us what you've done to accomplish those things, and ask for help when you need help to complete that recipe to a successful product.
