ok in the MallList class you have too many ';', and MallList doesn't
have a constructor with three arrays as parameters..

you have the following code, but no constructor for it.

MallList list = new MallList(String[],double[],int[]);

now MallItem does, but they are not arrays.

you need to pass a String[] name, double[] price, int[] store.

so in other words, change MallItem's argument constructor to

public MallItem(String[] name, double[] price, int[] store)
{
// etc.
}

and then instead of instantiating a object of type MallList, make one
of type MallItem.

and for you problem with the MallList class, you need to pass
a MallItem as a parameter to the constructor of MallList.

like:



now, for the MallList class, it's purpose is not really
all that neccesary..

unless MallList just has a collection or arraylist of
MallItems.

but anyways, hope that helps a little

Ok... I tried to make changes of what I understood. I also added a few more thngs that I will need. Right now I am just trying to accomplish getting the list to print and the program to work. I will be adding methods after to print in reverse, addItems, removeItems and such. Right now I am just concerned with getting a working program that prints what is in the list.

Right now all classes compile... but my output is like this:

----jGRASP exec: java TestListStudent

Is the list full? false
MallList@45a877

----jGRASP: operation complete.

At least its compiling, its farther than I was before.
Heres my code again


Test Class


Base class Item:


Derived class:


MallList Class:

MallItem itemOne = new MallItem("jeans",40.00,16);

that is the format for MallItem

what you need to do is like the following

no problem, sorry for "beating around the bush" but I wanted to help you learn how to identify the exact problem and find a solution for that problem, one problem at a time.

Not a problem....learn more that way. Sometimes from trial and error also. I had to try a few things a few times but I got it. Thanks!
