Introductory Notes

OOP Samples 

They following programs demonstrate the use of OOP techniques.

    IBIO Test - code for the IBIO commands in JETS 
    Fractions - a program to add fractions which are stored as Objects
    Blackjack - a simple card game simulation, using a CARD class
    Stack - uses a STACK stored in a Linked-List to reverse a list of words
    BinaryTree - alphabetical binary search tree

You may find it easier and/or more satisfying to write OOP code in BlueJ,
which clearly shows separate classes and connections between them.
If you do switch to BlueJ, keep in mind that it uses STANDARD Java,
and is missing some of the Processing commands that make things easier.
Most of your code will work the same, but you will need to write
standard class headers and a main method.

GUI, Graphics and other Interesting Commands

You may find the following demonstrations useful for project work.
These examples are presented in Processing programs, but you might
wish to use NetBeans for project work, as it makes lots of GUI and
other OOP construction faster and easier.   Specifically, NetBeans
supports Swing components.  Swing components are more complex
to use, but provide numerous helpful, advanced features.

   Buttons and Pictures - Uses AWT Buttons to display pictures

   NumList - input numbers and store them in an AWT List box

   Quiz Questions with Parallel Arrays - quiz questions with pictures

Storing Data in Files

   Email List - saves names and email addresses in a disk file
                       By default, data files land in the same folder
                       where the EmailList.java file is saved.

   Dates List - uses "loadStrings" and "saveStrings" to read and write
                      from a text file.  The loadStrings and saveStrings commands
                      are sensible and store the .txt file(s) in the same folder
                      where the DatesList.java program is saved.
