For this assignment we are going to implement the Mean Green
Airlines Application that we designed in Homework 3.
For the purposes of this assignment you will need to create a user
interface menu that matches your design as well as implement each
of the entities as classes in C++. Note we will be using C++ and you
will need to use the g++ version of the compiler.
You may use any of the C++ STL at this time. You may NOT use
Inheritance at this time. It is STRONGLY recommended, in fact it is
required, that you use a pattern-based solution such as the
transaction pattern we have discussed, just as you created in your
Other methods or designs will significantly increase your
development time, stress level, as well as the
degree of difficulty for this assignment. And you will lose a portion of
the points since it is required. Be sure that your implementation
reflects the information in your updated design; based on any
feedback you received from the grader or instructor.
You may need to modify your design from Homework 3 based on
grader comments and class discussion. You will need to turn this
updated design in as well as use it for the basis of your program
Be sure to attend class lectures, as we will discuss many of the
topics you will need to complete the assignment!
Your program will be written in C++ not any other computer language.
You will include the steps in your algorithm in your code. You may, of
course, paraphrase them if you like.
Your program will be graded based largely upon whether it works
correctly on a CSE Department Linux machine.
Your program will also be graded upon your program style. At the
very least your program should include: A consistent indentation style
as recommended in the textbook and in class. It should also use
meaningful variable names. A block header comment section that
includes: Your Name and Email Address, and a brief description of
Your program’s output should initially display the department and
course number, program number, your name, and your email address
– as in Homework 1.
Be sure to create appropriate test data and execute tests for proper
and improper data on all functions. You will submit your program
source file to the Canvas website under the “Homework 4” drop box.
Make sure you submit your program before the due date and time.
You must also submit your updated Design file, and a short report
about your efforts. Each class should have its own header (.h) and
code (.cpp) file as well as a .cpp for main and, if needed, a .h file for
main if any other functions of constants are needed. This means you
will be turning in 2 PDF’s (updated design document and report) , 7
cpp files (6 classes and 1 main) and at least 6 header files (1 for each
class). If you create a .h for main then you will have 7 header files.
You should also create a makefile to make it easier to compile your
code for both you and the grader. Finally zip all of these files into a
single zip file named hw4xxx.zip, where xxx represents your initials.
Please be sure and test your program to make sure it is working
properly. You can either do this by hand (calculating some test values
on paper to see if they match what your program says), or temporarily
display various intermediate values you’re calculating in the process
and desk check the results to make sure they are correct. The more
test cases you try and you get correct answers, the more certain you
will be that when the grader uses his or her own test cases that your
program will produce the correct result.
UPDATE REGARDING TIME
You may consider all times to be GMT (i.e. 0 offset for time zone)
You should include this in your user prompts that all times should be
entered as GMT. This will greatly simplify the time part of the
