Good Day,

I tried to run the following code example at http://www.devx.com/tips/Tip/22592.

The code is not totally clean and I tried to improve it. Still the output doesn't seem right:

A change has happened and new salary is ObserverJDK.Employee@14f8dab

Here is the slightly modified code:



Any ideas?

Thanks,
Dan

I think I got it:



But I'm not clear about the role of the parameter arg.

Hi Dan
Good day.

The argument of the update method is whatever argument you pass in the notifyObservers() method in the Observable class.
In your case, you passed "this" as argument thats why it is printing ObserverJDK.Employee@14f8dab

The following line will give your expected result:
notifyObservers(Float.toString(getSalary()));
