Homework PREREQUISITE Problem
I have a homework assignment that I am not asking you to help me with -- I only need help fixing the textbook example code that is supposed to be used as a starting point.
To wit, we are working from the textbook seen at http://condor.depaul.edu/~xjia/ , and I am assigned to make modifications to an example applet (the Bouncing Ball example in Chapter 8, for what that's worth). The code as published in the book compiles but doesn't work, and the code as modified by our instructor (who seems to have encountered the problem himself, ahead of time) doesn't even compile. I don't know enough Java/Swing to fix it myself, and don't have enough time to spend getting the prerequisite together and then doing the assignment (I work 40 hours/week in addition to school). (I've spent too much time already, e-mailing my instructor, the textbook author, and a mailinglist of assorted friends, about this.) I am therefore appealing to anyone here who might be willing to take a look at the doggoned thing.
Please look at http://www.cs.sunyit.edu/~chiesac1/emergency.html and see what you can tell me. Thanks.
