This module is one of a series of modules designed to teach you about Object-Oriented Programming (OOP) using Java.

The program described in this module requires the use of the Guzdial-Ericson multimedia class library. You will find download, installation, and usageinstructions for the library at Java OOP: The Guzdial-Ericson Multimedia Class Library .

Viewing tip

I recommend that you open another copy of this document in a separate browser window and use the following links to easily find and view the Figures and Listings while you are reading about them.

  • Figure 2 . Beach scene with student's name added.
  • Figure 3 . Composite image.
  • Figure 4 . Required text output.
  • Figure 5 . Cropped and flipped version of the butterfly image.
  • Figure 6 . Partially complete version of the output picture.


  • Listing 1 . The driver class named Prob02.
  • Listing 2 . Beginning of the Prob02Runner class.
  • Listing 3 . Beginning of the run method.

  • Listing 8 . Process using nested loops.
  • Listing 9 . The remainder of the run method.
  • Listing 10 . Complete program listing.


In this module, you will learn how to:

  • Work directly with individual pixels and keep track of coordinate values.
  • Copy a portion of one picture into a specific location in another picture.
  • Crop and flip a picture.

Program specifications

Write a program named Prob02 that uses the class definition shown in Listing 1 and Ericson's media library along with the image files named Prob02a.jpg and Prob02b.jpg to produce the three graphic output images shown in Figure 1 , Figure 2 , and Figure 3 .

Figure 1 - Raw butterfly image.

This is an image of a butterfly that will be superimposed on a beach scene to form a composite image.

Figure 2 - Beach scene with student's name added.

This is an image of a beach scene that will be used to form a composite image.

Figure 3 - Composite image.

This is the composite image with the cropped and flipped images of the butterfly superimposed on the beach scene on each side of center.

May define new classes

You may define new classes as necessary to cause your program to behave as required, but you may not modify the class definition for the class named Prob02 given in Listing 1 .

The facing butterfly images

The two facing images of the butterflies in the final output picture are separated by two pixels and those two images as a pair are centered in thepicture of the beach.

Required text output

In addition to the three output images mentioned above, your program must display your name and the other three lines of text shown in Figure 4 on the command-line screen:

Figure 4 . Required text output.
Display your name here. Picture, filename Prob02a.jpg height 118 width 100Picture, filename Prob02b.jpg height 240 width 320 Picture, filename None height 101 width 77

I start with an easy one. carbon nanotubes woven into a long filament like a string
many many of nanotubes
what is the k.e before it land
what is the function of carbon nanotubes?
I'm interested in nanotube

Yes, Nanotechnology has a very fast field of applications and their is always something new to do with it...

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
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world

At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.

the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
