General Comment on Homework Questions

Many users of "Java in General (Beginner)" are asking for help with homework assignments and we love to help them. However, I believe that we should be suggesting how to solve the problems, not posting the code.

1. We won't be there to take their exams.

2. Submitting homework using code off the net without attribution is cheating and unfair to the teacher and other students.

3. Many teachers read this BB.

4. Some code posted is much too sophisticated to come from a beginning Java student. What will happen when the teacher asks how the code works?
