Assignment 7 - iTunes Objects




Assignment 7 - iTunes Objects;Select one option from below. All (both) options are worth the same number of points. The more;advanced option(s) are provided for students who find the basic one too easy and want more of a;challenge. Make sure you have read and understood;both modules A and B this week, and;module 2R - Lab Homework Requirements;before submitting this assignment. Hand in only one program, please.;OPTION A (Basic) iTunes;Understand the Application;An iTunes entry in music library is a descriptor that summarizes information about the tune that it;describes. (It is not the actual tune, which is contained in a large music data file.) For each iTunes;entry in your own music library file (which is in XML format, but we won't go there) there are;between 20 and 50 fields -- i.e., members. If you were to look at the file on your system, you would;find that the fields have names like Genre, Track ID, Name, Artist, Bit Rate, Sample Rate, Track;Type, and so on.;We will consider a simplified iTunes class, that stores these iTunes entry objects, with only the;following four members for each object;Name (the title of the song);Artist (the performing musician or group);Bit Rate (the number of kilobits per second that the iTunes object streams at or plays at --;higher for better quality, lower for smaller data file size);Total Time (the playing time of the iTunes object, represented in milliseconds, i.e., 36500;would stand for 36.5 seconds).;The assignment is to first create a class called iTunes that represents these four items, and;provides solid protection for the fields. Then, the client, main(), will instantiate between three and;six iTunes objects (some using default constructors and some using parameter-taking constructors);display them immediately, mutate many of their fields, and display them again to reflect the;changes. Also, test both mutators and accessors, individually in a couple spot-tests of each (two;mutator tests and two accessor tests).;The Program Spec;Class iTunes Spec;Private class instance members;String name - the title of the song. All legal strings should be between 1 and 80 characters.;String artist - the performing musician or group. All legal strings should be between 1 and 80;characters.;int bitrate - the number of kilobits per second. A legal value should be between 64 and 705.;int totalTime - the playing time in milliseconds. A legal value should be between 1;second and 1 hour (expressed in milliseconds);As stated in the modules, we never want to see a literal in our methods. So the class should have;static members to hold values for the limits described above, as well as default values for any field;that is constructed using illegal arguments from the client. These are put in the public;static section.;Public class static constants (finals);MIN_BITRATE = 64;MAX_BITRATE = 705;MIN_STR_LENGTH = 1;MAX_STR_LENGTH = 80;MIN_PLAY_TIME = 1000;MAX_PLAY_TIME = 1000*60*60;DEFAULT_BITRATE = 64;DEFAULT_PLAY_TIME = 1000;DEFAULT_STRING = " (undefined);You should supply all of the following public instance methods;Constructors -- one that takes no parameters (sets values to default) and one that takes all;four parameters.;Accessors (get()s) and Mutators (set()s) for each instance member.;String toString() - a method that returns a String which contains all the information of;the iTunes object. This String can be in any format as long as it is understandable and;clearly formatted. Two of the many possible formats for such a String for oneiTunesobject;might be;Janiva Magness, You Were Never Mine, 276 seconds, 128k bits per second;Title: You Were Never Mine / Artist: Janiva Magness / Playing Time: 4 minutes 36;seconds / Bit Rate: 128k;void display() - an output method that sends the String returned by the toString() to the;screen. display() can, alternatively, send the data directly to the screen on several lines in a;different manner than toString(). It can also call upontoString() but prepend and append;extra formatting for the console.;iTunes should be a class distinct from (and not contained within) your main class (which we;call Foothill). However, you can and should defined it as a non-public class so it can reside in the;same file,;The Foothill main();The client has been described, but to summarize, it should instantiate, display, mutate, and display;again. It does not have to take any input from the user.;Other Testing;After the main section, confirm that your mutators correctly filter out and report bad arguments to;the client by placing a couple mutator calls (not all of them) in if statements which print different;messages depending on whether the mutator succeeded or failed. Also, demonstrate at least two;different accessor calls to show that they work from main().;I am not supplying a sample spec this week -- the above description is adequate..
