In your workspace make sure you have the most recent code from the base
repository and from your homework repository on bitbucket. This assignment is a
continuation of the work you did on lab day.
Take these steps in hw07:
- Add an abstract play() method (no return type and no parameters)
to your RPSTournament class. This method will be used to stage the
tournament. As you know there can be various types of tournaments: round
robin, single elimination, double elimination, etc. You will also need to
make the RPSTournament class abstract as a result of this change.
- Create a new class called RoundRobinTournament that inherits from
RPSTournament. In the new class provide a definition for the
play() method that has every player in the tournament play a
rock-paper-scissors bout with every other player in the tournament.
- Modify the RPSPlayer compareTo() method so that instead
of comparing players by name it compares them by their win/loss record.
We would say that player1 is greater than player2 if player1 has more
wins than player2. If player1 and player2 have the same number of wins
then we would say player1 is greater than player2 if player1 has fewer
losses than player2. If player1 and player2 have the same number of wins
and the same number of losses then they are equal.
- In the driver create an instance of the RoundRobinTournament
class and add seven players to the tournament. Then play the tournament.
Once all games have been played sort the players (best record first)
and display all players including their name, number of wins and number
As you work, document your code and commit at appropriate times. When
you complete your work be sure to push all committed changes to bitbucket.
The assignment will be graded according to the following criteria:
Your program should be completely working and should follow all of the
programming conventions named in class and explained in
http://josephus.hsutx.edu/classes/all/javaconventions/ (including the use
of comments that conform to the JavaDoc guidelines).
The instructor will grade your work based on what you have pushed to the hosted
homework repository you have shared. For all assignments the program is due
before the beginning of class on the due date. Repositories that show a commit
time after that time will be graded as late.
