In the project you will construct a Java Swing GUI that uses event handlers and listeners while expanding
on the project 1 Shape theme. Before completing this exercise, be sure to review and try the Java class
and inheritance examples and materials found in this free Safari resource:
You should focus on Chapters 24, 25, 26, and 27

Design, implement and test a set of Java classes that allows a user to select a shape from a list of
available shapes, enter appropriate dimensional parameters and then display that shape in a frame of
your Swing-based GUI. For 3-D shapes consider loading an image from a file and displaying that as a
Your list of shapes should be similar, if not identical to the ones used in project one:
Take advantage of various Swing AWT components including Layout Managers, Event Handlers,
Listener Interfaces, Adapter Classes, Inner Classes, Buttons and other widgets as needed.
Take your time on understanding how the graphical components and listeners work so you can
easily display appropriate actions based on any event.
1. Submit all of your Java source files (each class should be in a separate .java file). These files
should be zipped and submitted with the documentation.
2. UML class diagram showing the type of the class relationships.
3. Developer’s guide describing how to compile and execute the program. The guide should
include a comprehensive test plan that includes evidence of testing each component of the
menu with screen captures and descriptions supporting each test. Documentation includes
Your compressed zip file should be submitted to the Project 2 folder in LEO no later than the due
date listed in the classroom calendar.
