Your Java submissions will be automatically graded for conforming to the following style rules:
The file should not contain any TAB characters. The submission server will show you where you fail to do so.
The names of classes and interfaces must start with a capital letter, the names of fields and method must start with a lower case letter.
There must be a blank space before every curly brace. The submission server will show you where you fail to do so.
Lines of code and comments must not be longer than 80 characters.
If there are other style problems that the WebCAT marks as incorrect, please, email me with the code that caused the problem. It may be that we meant to enforce this rule, but did not tell you, or we may decide to disable that check in the WebCAT server - but without your feedback, we may not know whether a particular style rule matters for our programs.
Names of methods, fields, and sample data
When the assignment describes sample data to be defined, or specifies method or field names, make sure your program uses the prescribed names. Your program will be tested by our code that expects the names to be as specified. Of course, you are free to create additional sample data, and other methods (e.g. helper methods) as desired or necessary.
