Hey guys,

Just asking for a little help here. I am trying to finish a java program for a class and I am stuck on a bit of code. I've figured out most of the code but am stuck on the code at the end:




Here is the code in it's entirety:

Welcome to JavaRanch!

Have you compiled this code yet? Don't wait until it's "done" to compile. You should recompile each time you add something, so you don't end up with errors that build on each other.

Also, if "Time" is java.sql.Time, you should check the API. Most of the methods are deprecated. The non-deprecated methods are inherited from java.util.Date, so you might want to consider using Date instead. Better yet, use java.util.Calendar.

Agree with Marc Weber. Also your method which has a return null in looks very peculiar; I think it might not work correctly. Beware of returning null anywhere; it can produce unexpected exceptions or errors later.

Well you have these members in the maze result:

private Rat rodent;
private Time startTime;
private Time endTime;

Perhaps your toString() would do something like:

return getRodent().toString() + "; start: " + getStartTime() + "; end: " + getEndTime();

Rat class should have a toString method too.
