I just did inorder to get a look at the output, to see if my function worked.

I'm trying to write a function that performs a swap on all the children of nodes at a given depth.

Say we have a tree like this:

And an array containing the depth of nodes I want to perform a swap on.

If the array contains 1 then we swap all the childs of nodes at that depth. The tree would then look like this:

My function looks like this:

When I run this method on the example tree, and perform a inorder traversal of the tree, it gives me

I came across an interesting programming challenge, which I'm trying to solve.

In my mind Dijkstras algorithm is the best solution, since what they're essentially asking is to find the shortest path in a un-directed graph.

Here is my solution, but I don't get the correct answer, so I'd like some feedback on my code. Maybe my mistake is obvious.

Any help on the would truly be appreciated!

Do you have any specific date formats in mind?

How about 2 Mar 15 or 1/4/15 or dd-mm-(yy)yy (traditional Danish) or yyyy年m月d日 (Chinese)

Months as actual text which cannot be parsed to ints is a problem...

dd-mm-yyyy will work, but not with dd-mm-yy.

But, when you write year with only yy, how will one know if i mean 2020 or 1920 for example?

Not mmddyy, because I assume year is 4 digits. see my answer above for what date version it accepts right now..

Do you have any specific date formats in mind?

Right now it accepts:




Only thing I can think would be if one would set a 2 digit year (YY)?

I actually worked "backwards".

I started out by asking myself - How do I want to call the validation method, and set the date format at the same time? Enum seemed like the most logical choice to me.
You could do so much more with enum in java as opposed to other languages.

I'm fairly new to java, and is just building small programs to get the feel for the language. Any tips on how I can improve this code would be greatly appreciated.
