Task 1: Value 5 marks
In this task, you are required to provide the definition of a class called Student, which represents a typical (but a very limited) university student. Each student has a name (which consists of a string of characters) and a unique student identification (ID) number (consisting of a string of exactly six numerical digits).
You are also required to define a class called TestStudent, which will be used to perform a number of test used to among other things, verify the correctness of the Student class.
In order to maintain the uniqueness of the student ID, your program will need to check that any new IDs supplied by the user is not the same as any of the existing student IDs.
Following are a list of specifications of the Student class:
Two fields name and id representing the student name and the student ID respectively as described above
Get and set methods for each field(getName(), getId(), setName(), setId())
A toString() method that returns a string description of a given student object
An isValidId() method which accepts a string representing a possible new student ID as an argument and returns a boolean value (true or false) indicating whether the new ID satisfies the structural requirements of the student ID or not
A IdExists() which accepts a string argument representing a possible new student ID and returns a boolean value indicating whether the new ID is already being used by another student or not
Your TestStudent class should be able to perform the following functions:
Create an ArrayList object of Student objects called studentList, using the student data stored in a text file named students.txt (you should create this file such that it stores the student name and ID of several students initially – one line per student)
Allow the user to add as many new Student objects as the user requests to the ArrayList ensuring that each student has a unique student ID
When the user has finished adding new students to the list, the program will override the students.txt file such that it includes the data relating to the new students as well as the original ones
Ability to display a full list of students as well as just the existing student IDs when necessary
Ensure that the program is appropriately documented throughout and thoroughly tested to demonstrate its correct operation.
You need to submit java and class files, a short discussion to explain the logic on how the problem has been solved, and sample output (for detail please see marking criteria and presentation below)
Task 3: Value 4 marks
Write a Java program using JavaFX that displays five playing cards. In the first row display three playing cards (randomly selected from the first 52 cards). In the second and third rows display two different cards compared to the first row at 45 degree and 90 degree angles respectively.
The image icons used in the questions are available in the Resource folder of Interact2. You may need to use HBox and/or VBox Pane.
Task 4: Value 3 marks
Investigate the imperative programming paradigm, as exemplified by procedural programming and object-oriented programming, and the declarative programming paradigm, as exemplified by functional programming and logic programming.
The Reading from Brookshear, 2012 will form a starting point for your investigation. For further investigation, remember that you should not reference Wikipedia items in an essay, so make sure to find articles that you can reference.
Write an essay, of approximately 800 words, based on your investigation, which provides answers to the following questions:
What are the essential differences between the paradigms?
What are some of the programming languages used for these different paradigms?
What specific advantages are provided by these different programming approache
