Nothing new here

There is nothing in Listing 6 that is new relative to what you learned in the previous module. Listing 6 starts by defining four GM2D02.Point objects that will be used to define the ends of the line segments. References to these Point objects are passed to the constructor for the GM2D02.Line class to instantiate the four Line objects.

Note that the locations of the points, and hence the positions of the lines were one pixel away from the edges of the canvas towards the center of thecanvas. These locations were chosen to ensure that the resulting visual manifestations of the lines would be visible on the canvas.

It is also extremely important to understand that the GM2D02.Point and GM2D02.Line objects instantiated in Listing 6 are not graphical objects. Rather, they are underlying data objects, which are suitable for use inmathematical operations.

Draw a visual manifestation of each line

Listing 7 calls the draw method of the GM2D02.Line class four times in succession for each off-screen image. Note that a reference tothe off-screen image is passed as a parameter to the draw method each time the method is called on one of the GM2D02.Line objects.

Listing 7 . Draw a visual manifestation of each line.
//Now draw a visual manifestation of each line // on g2Da.top.draw(g2Da); rightSide.draw(g2Da);bottom.draw(g2Da); leftSide.draw(g2Da);//Now draw a visual manifestation of each of the same// four lines on g2Db top.draw(g2Db);rightSide.draw(g2Db); bottom.draw(g2Db);leftSide.draw(g2Db);

As you will see shortly, each of these calls to the draw method causes an object of the standard Java Line2D.Double class to be rendered onto the specified off-screen image. When the off-screen image is ultimatelycopied to the canvas object by the overridden paint method, this produces a visual manifestation of the GM2D02.Line object.

Once again, however, it is very important to understand that the Line2D.Double object is a graphical object and the GM2D02.Line is an underlying data object. They are completely independent objects.

Also, it is important to understand that the Line2D.Double class is a member of the standard Java library,whereas the GM2D02.Line class is a member of my special game math library named GM2D02 .

The draw method of the GM2D02.Line class

Now it's time to explain one of the methods that was added to the original game-math library named GM2D01 to produce the new library named GM2D02 . At this point, I will start switching back and forth between code in the GM2D02 library and code in the program named PointLine03 .

Listing 8 shows the draw method that was called repeatedly on the GM2D02.Line objects in Listing 7 . This code belongs to the GM2D02 library.

Listing 8 . The draw method of the GM2D02.Line class.
public void draw(Graphics2D g2D){ Line2D.Double line = new Line2D.Double(getTail().getData(0), getTail().getData(1),getHead().getData(0), getHead().getData(1));g2D.draw(line); }//end draw

Construct and render a Line2D.Double object on the graphics context

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.

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.

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
