Here's a cool experiment I suggest you can try.
  • Setup duckduckgo as your default search engine in chrome
  • Search for any text
  • Now open

  • I searched for "I hate cabbage". See attached screenshot

    Maybe your lecturer was referring to this ? "var" was introduced in java 10.

    I would love to see your code in this way :

    Maybe its because you misspelled: getInitParamater, it should be getInitParameter.

    It depends on how the problem is presented to them. Some students take it like a puzzle and some take it as a homework/chore that needs to be completed.
    I am a bit curious about this triangle though. A few questions to OP :
  • Why 10 ? why not 11 or 14 or any other number? Is this input from user ?
  • Why does it stop at "10 9 8 7 6 5" ? is it because we have output 6 lines or because we have reached the number 5 as some threshold ?
  • And the most important question of all :
  • What have you done so far ? Please share your code.

    Maybe you could share a SSCE(short self contained example) and it's output and what you expected it to be ?

    Here's a simple program that can help you out:

    A return statement returns from the method call itself (Not always though, there could be code in a finally block that would be executed), while a break statement breaks the current loop being executed and the code continues after that.

    Hi, I suggest posting the code instead of a picture.
    Did you run the code ? What was the output when you ran it ?

    No, a break or a return statement stops the loop.

    Hi Victoria, Welcome to Code ranch.
    I like these triangle type of problems since they allow you to build up your looping skills. Can you explain the problem in more detail ?

    Hi, I noticed that this exact question was posted on codeproject website. We have a rule against that BeForthrightWhenCrossPostingToOtherSites <-- It's a link.

    Yes, this is precisely why I dont create shortcuts to the jars directly. It defaults to the operating system's default action (e.g. what happens when user double clicks a jar). Typically, the java installation takes care of this association, but I am not sure if this is always the case. I used to keep shortcuts to either java.exe or javaw.exe. The advantage of java.exe is that it spawns a new console window alongside my program. But for swing based applications, I prefer javaw.exe

    See my suggestion .. don't add a shortcut to the jar, instead add a shortcut to javaw.exe with argument as your jar path. This has worked for me for a while in the past.

    I dont think it has to go. I suggest following the links Campbell shared about Formatter.
