Last August or so was the last time I played the rules roundup game. This was back when javaranch was Kathy's site. I remember that there was a bug in the program and that a few of the questions were ambiguous. If anybody encounters the bug or an ambiguous question, please let me know and I'll fix it right away.
I'm a new user of Rules Roundup as of this week. My goal is certification, so I expect to be a regular visitor. Rules Roundup is fun; but at times I find myself wondering what # question am I on? There is no # reference with the questions. This could be useful in determining whether one has sufficient time to complete the questions if interrupted. Unless adding # references defeats the original intent of Rules Roundup, please add #'s. Thanks! P.S.: I learned of this site via a posting in a discussion thread through the Gamelan link at the java.sun website. Thank you to whoever directed new Java users to Javaranch.
I found this: Class Y is a subclass of class X. Will this compile? Y myY = new Y(); X myX = y; The answer says it will compile - making some comment about how a parent class reference can hold a subclass type. From the answer, I believe the X myX = y should be X myX = myY.
