So I have a question I'm trying to solve. I am supposed to display four patterns using loops. I have the coding for each pattern, but is there a way to have them all in the same .java file? Here's my code:


When I run, I can only do the output for the first pattern. I just don't know how to go about combining them. Is there a way to do all of them without separating each into their own file/project? Thanks.

You can only have one main method. However, that method can call other methods.

Do you have an example? My book doesn't talk about this.

Did you get to the section regarding creating methods yet? If not, here is the section from the Oracle tutorial... https://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/java/javaOO/methods.html

Why have you marked everything static? Using the keyword static without a good explanation is a mistake. “Because it wouldn't compile otherwise,” is not a good explanation.

Please read this, which is on the contents page of this forum:-

We're all here to learn, so when responding to others, please focus on helping them discover their own solutions, instead of simply providing answers.

By providing a complete solution you are depriving the OP of the opportunity to learn from this experience; also if this is assessed work there is a risk OP will be accused of plagiarism and get a mark of 0.
Please don't get annoyed, but I have pulled rank and deleted the solution, except one part which regular readers will doubtless see in a few seconds will fail to “work”.
