    Do you really think we are going to get into all sorts of shady encrypted websites? Post your code and tell us where you have problems, what your questions are and including any errormessages. If you don't want your professor to find out you're getting your homework done on a Java forum, then don't post it here. Or study, whatever you prefer.

    i really would man, but its due tommorow, i tried to do it myself, and got tons of errors :S. Im screwed if i dont finish it. That website is a known website dude, everybody uses it for quick message encryption, there's no sort of trickery into it or anything of that sort.

    If you have a java programming problem, post the code and the error messages or other questions you have about the code in one of the sections.
    If you don't understand my response, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    We're glad to help people with java programming problems. They need to post their code here and ask some questions about the problems they are having.

    If their professor does not want his students using forums for homework assignments, I'd honor that desire.
    Otherwise is it cheating when a student gets help that other students didn't get?

    I got the same PM... I am not your private tutor. Not here, not on Skype.

    Ofcourse I understand why you want to hide your code. Your prof is reading this forum as well. So why not make a generic example, change the names to protect the innocent classes? Explain what you want to achieve and what your code actually does.

    So for the love of James Gosling, post that error here!!! It's a start! Maybe we ask for some source code to see what you did. We're not mindreaders, you know...

    Dude im seriously wasting my time, i already told u i've gave it a shot, i have tons of other courses i attend, and the assignment is due tommorow, the courses here arent even organized, i had 2 exams yesterday, one of which lasted for 2 hours, and the other for 3. Came back home at 10:00pm i was extremely exhausted, and i still have the assignment to complete in a few hours which isnt really possible for me at the moment, since i dont really understand how classes and objects really function.

    Hmm. I am really wondering what is going through the mind of some people.

    If you have problems to understand something, then all professors have no problem at all if you seek help. That is a complete normal process. (When I studied computer science it was completly normal for students to sit together and learn or help each other to get a good understanding.)

    Of course: A professor does not want that someone is doing your assignment for you. But that is something that most people in here will never do.

    And you even do not have to post your assignment here. You could quikly create a new example of your problem.

    And your "security" is no real security. I could have decrypted your message and simply posted it here. So the security that you wanted to get is not there at all!
    (And if we want to discuss such a website: How could you trust such a company? It is as bad as these "Free Certificates" that I saw on the net. Just give enter email-address and your password and then you get a download link to your certificate. Ohh great. Who else gets a copy? And it seems that people still use it... It is ok for me if you want to use such things but please do NOT send me to such websites!)

    So you have to know if you want help or not. If you want help from us here, you should know now what to do.

    Since the OP has removed his original post, I think this thread can be binned as well.

    We gave you exact details what you could do to get help. You even didn't tell us the errors you got. So sorry - stop wasting our times with your skype and encrypted stuff crap and come with clear questions or your error messages.

    As far as I can see, you're on the right path. Without an actual question or an error message it's pretty hard to comment on this, so I start by making a general example here:

    To make a new Movie object you declare a variable and usualy at the same time initialize it to something useful:
    Java Code:
    Movie myMovie = new Movie();
    You can now enter the data:
    Java Code:
    myMovie.setTitle("Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy");
    This code implies you have created a method setTitle(String), that assign it to the field (or attribute as you described it) in the Movie class .



    Nitpick: Java code conventions say that all classes need to start with a capital letter, so it's not
    Java Code:
    class movie {
    
    }
    but
    Java Code:
    class Movie {
    
    }
    This also means it should be in a file called Movie.java instead of movie.java.
