Usage instructions

At runtime, the name of the class that implements the GraphIntfc01 interface must be provided as a command-line argument.

If the command-line argument is missing, the program instantiates an object from the internal test class named junk and plots the data produced by thatobject. Therefore, you can test the program by running it with no command-line arguments. This will produce the display shown in Figure 4 .

If the command-line argument is provided, the program instantiates an object of the class whose name matches the argument, and plots the data produced bythat object.

Plotting parameters

This program provides the following text fields for user input, along with a button labeled Graph . This allows the user to adjust the parameters and re-plot the graph as many times as needed with as many differentplotting scales as may be needed:

  • xMin = minimum x-axis value
  • xMax = maximum x-axis value
  • yMin = minimum y-axis value
  • yMax = maximum y-axis value
  • xTicInt = tic interval on x-axis
  • yTicInt = tic interval on y-axis
  • xCalcInc = calculation interval

The user can modify any of these parameters and then press the Graph button to cause the five functions to be re-plotted according to the newparameters.

A new object

Whenever the Graph button is pressed, the event handler for that button instantiates a new object of the class that implements the GraphIntfc01 interface.

Depending on the nature of that class, this may be redundant in some cases. However, it is useful in those cases where it is necessary to refresh the valuesof instance variables defined in the class (such as a counter, for example) .

(I will show you how to eliminate this feature from the plotting program if you decide that it is unnecessary for your data.)

Requires java sdk 1.4 or later

This program uses constants that were first defined in the Color class of v1.4.0. Therefore, the program requires v1.4.0 or later to compile andexecute correctly.

Will discuss in fragments

I will discuss this program in fragments. As mentioned earlier, a complete listing of the program is provided in Listing 39 near the end of the module. You should be able to copy and paste that code into your Java source file, and thencompile and execute it successfully.

The class named Graph01

The entire class, including the main method is shown in Listing 19 .

Listing 19. The class named Graph01.
import java.awt.*; import java.awt.event.*;import java.awt.geom.*; import javax.swing.*;import javax.swing.border.*; class Graph01{public static void main( String[]args) throws NoSuchMethodException,ClassNotFoundException, InstantiationException,IllegalAccessException{ if(args.length == 1){//pass command-line parameter new GUI(args[0]); }else{//no command-line parameter given new GUI(null);}//end else }// end main}//end class Graph01 definition

The primary purpose of main method is to instantiate an object of the class named GUI .

In addition, the main method checks to see if the user provided a command-line argument, and if so, passes it along to the constructorfor the GUI class.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
is Bucky paper clear?
carbon nanotubes has various application in fuel cells membrane, current research on cancer drug,and in electronics MEMS and NEMS etc
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
