Goals: Practice designing the representation of complex data.

You will submit this assignment by the deadlines using the course handin server. Follow A Complete Guide to the Handin Server for information on how to use the handin server. You may submit as many times as you wish. Be aware of the fact that close to the deadline the server may slow down to handle many submissions, so try to finish early. There will be a separate submission for each problem - it makes it easier to grade each problem, and to provide you with the feedback for each problem you work on.
Due Date: Thursday, January 16th, 9:00 pm
Work out these problems from How to Design Classes on your own. Save them in an electronic portfolio, so you can show them to your instructor, review them before the exam, use them as a reference when working on the homework assignments.

Everywhere in this assignment that you see italic, fixed-width text, it is intended to be the name of a field, identifier, class name or interface name you must define...but you likely must modify that name a bit to conform to our Java naming conventions: hyphenated-names are written in camelCase, and interface names begin with an uppercase I.
Everywhere that you see fixed-width text, it is exactly the name you must use.
We are designing the data collection for the American Kennel Club. For each dog we need to collect the following information:
name: to be represented as a String
breed: of dog
yob: the year of birth given as a four digit number
state: of residence – given as the standard two letter abbreviation
hypoallergenic: a boolean value, true, if the dog is hypoallergenic
Design the class Dog that represents the information about each dog for the census.
Make at least three examples of instances of this class, in the class ExamplesDog. Two of the examples should be objects named huffle and pearl and should represent the following two dogs:
Hufflepuff, a Wheaten Terrier, born in 2012, resides in TX, and is hypoallergenic
Pearl, a Labrador Retriever, born in 2016, resides in MA, and is not hypoallergenic
You should submit your data definitions and examples in a file named Dog.java
Here is a data definition in DrRacket:
;; An IceCream is one of: ;; -- EmptyServing ;; -- Scooped ;;An EmptyServing is a (make-empty-serving Boolean) (define-struct empty-serving (cone)) ;;A Scooped is a (make-scooped IceCream String) (define-struct scooped (more flavor))
Draw the class diagram that represents this data definition. You may draw this as ASCII-art and include it in your submission, if you wish. Or you can just draw it on paper and not submit it. Regardless, we think it will help you in visualizing how the data is organized.
Convert this data definition into Java. Make sure you use the same names for data types and for the fields, as are used in the DrRacket data definitions, converted into Java style standards. Make sure that the constructor arguments are given in the same order as shown.
Create examples in a class ExamplesIceCream. Include in your examples the following two ice cream orders:
– a cup of ice cream with scoops of "mint chip", "coffee", "black raspberry", and "caramel swirl"
– a cone with scoops of "chocolate", "vanilla", and "strawberry"
Make sure the two sample orders given above are named order1 and order2. Note: the descriptions above are listed in the order that you would order this in real life. Think carefully how this should be represented as data.

We’ve been asked to help build a new medieval adventure game, Summer Is Coming. We’re trying to figure out the gameplay mechanics, so we’re starting with representations for travel around the game world. Players can live in three types of housing: a Hut, an Inn, and a Castle.
A Hut has a capacity and the current count of its population. The population must be less than the capacity.
An Inn has a name, capacity and the current count of its population as well as the number of stalls in its stable. The population must be less than the capacity.
A Castle has a name, the family-name of the owners, the current count of its population as well as the number of carriages it can hold in its carriage-house.
Each type of transportation should have a from and a to housing. Horses also have a name and a color (which you may represent using the color’s name). They can only go to an inn if there is room in the stables, but they can go to any hut or castle.
Carriages can only carry a limited supply of tonnage and only travel from Inns to Castles or vice versa. When they go to a Castle there must be room for them in the carriage house.
- Define six examples of housing, including:
The others can be whatever you wish.
hovel: Capacity 5, population 1
winterfell: Named "Winterfell", family name "Stark", population 500, can hold 6 carriages
crossroads: Named "Inn At The Crossroads", capacity 40, population 20, 12 stalls
Define four types of travel, two of each kind.
Name your examples horse1, carriage2, etc., and your examples class ExamplesTravel.
We’re placing a lot of restrictions on the data, such as the population being less than capacity, possible destinations of carriages, etc. However we aren’t (yet) actually enforcing these in the code. The ways to enforce these constraints will be further explored later in the semester. For now, you are expected to create examples that conform to these constraints.
