1. Specification
The fourth programming project involves designing, writing and testing a program that behaves like the Java
command line compiler. Whenever we request that the Java compiler recompile a particular class, it not only
recompiles that class but every other class that depends upon it, directly or indirectly, and in a particular order.
To make the determination about which classes need recompilation, the Java compiler maintains a directed
graph of class dependencies. Any relationship in a UML class diagram of a Java program such as inheritance
relationships, composition relationships and aggregations relationships indicate a class dependency.
The main class P4GUI should create the Swing based GUI shown below:
The GUI must be generated by code that you write. You may not use a drag-and-drop GUI generator.
Pressing the Build Directed Graph button should cause the specified input file that contains the class
dependency information to be read in and the directed graph represented by those dependencies to be built.
The input file should be generated by the students using a simple text editor such as Notepad. The input file
associated with the above example is shown below:
ClassA ClassC ClassE
ClassB ClassD ClassG
ClassE ClassB ClassF ClassH
ClassI ClassC
Each line of this file specifies classes that have other classes that depend upon them. The first line, for example,
indicates that ClassA has two classes that depend upon it, ClassC and ClassE. In the context of
recompilation, it means when ClassA is recompiled, ClassC and ClassE must be recompiled as well. Using
graph terminology, the first name on each line is the name of a vertex and the remaining are its associated
adjacency list. Classes that have no dependent classes need not appear at the beginning of a separate line.
Notice, for example, that ClassC is not the first name on any line of the file.
After pressing the Build Directed Graph button, one of following two messages should be generated depending
upon whether the specified file name could be opened:
Once the graph has been built, the name of a class to be recompiled can be specified and the
Topological Order button can be pressed. Provided a valid class name has been supplied, a topological order
algorithm should be executed that will generate (in the text area at the bottom of the GUI window) the list of
classes in the order they are to be recompiled. The correct recompilation order is any topological order of the
subgraph that emanates from the specified vertex.
An invalid class name should generate an exception and an appropriate error message will be displayed in a
JOptionPane. If the graph contains a cycle among the Java classes, an exception will be thrown and a message
will be displayed in a JOptionPane indicating that a cycle has been detected.
Note. In the real compiling processes, when circular dependencies exist in Java programs, the compiler must
make two passes over all the classes in the cycle. For this program, it will be sufficient to display a message
indicating that a cycle has been detected.
In addition to the main class that defines the GUI, a second class is needed to define the directed graph. It
should be a generic class allowing for a generic type of its vertices. In this application the type of the vertices
will be String.
For better processing purposes, integer values will be used to represent the vertices instead of Strings. The
graph should be represented as an array list of vertices (as integer values) that contain a linked list of their
associated adjacency lists. The adjacency lists should be lists of integers that represent the index rather than
vertex name itself. A hash map should be used to associate vertex names with their index in the list of vertices.
For the input file shown above the array list of linked lists of integers would be the following:
0 [1, 2]
1 []
2 [3, 6, 7]
3 [4, 5]
4 []
5 []
6 []
7 []
8 [1]
Storing the vertex indices rather than the names simplifies the topological order algorithm. The hash map would
associate index 0 with ClassA, index 1 with ClassC, index 2 with ClassE and so on.
The directed graph class should define methods for initializing the graph each time a new file is read in, for
adding a vertex and an edge to the graph and for generating a topological order given a starting index. Other
classes / methods could be also defined to achieve the program requirements and for better structuring the
code.
Finally, custom checked exception classes should be defined for the cases where a cycle occurs and when an
invalid class name is specified.
Your program should compile without errors.
The Google recommended Java style guide (https://google.github.io/styleguide/javaguide.html) should be used
to format and document your code. Specifically, the following style guide attributes should be addressed:
header comments include filename, author, date and brief purpose of the program; In-line comments used to
describe major functionality of the code; the meaning and the role of variables and constants are indicated as
code comments; meaningful variable names and prompts applied; class names are written in UpperCamelCase;
variable names are written in lowerCamelCase; constant names are in written in All Capitals; braces use K&R
style.
In addition the following design constraints should be followed: declare all instance variables private; avoid the
duplication of code.
2. Submission requirements
Submit the following to the Project 2 assignment area no later than the due date listed in your LEO classroom.
1. All .java source files (no other file types should be submitted). The source code should use Java code
conventions and appropriate code layout (white space management and indents) and comments. All submitted
files may be included in a .zip file.
2. The solution description document P3SolutionDescription (.pdf or .doc / .docx) containing the following:
(1) Assumptions, main design decisions, error handling;
(2) A UML class diagram that includes all classes you wrote. Do not include predefined classes. You need only
include the class name for each individual class, not the variables or methods;
(3) A table of test cases including the test cases that you have created to test the program. The table has 5
columns indicating (i) what aspect is tested, (ii) the input values, (iii) the expected output, (iv) the actual output
and (v) if the test case passed or failed. Each test case will be defined in a table row.
(4) Relevant screenshots of program execution;
(5) Lessons learned from the project;
