Project #76463 - State bird (Java)

Homework 4a

Before attempting this project, be sure you have completed all of the reading assignments, hands-on labs, discussions, and assignments to date.

(25 points) Write a Java program the displays the State bird and flower. You should use your IDE for this exercise. The program should prompt the user to enter a State and print both the State bird and flower. The user should be able to enter a State without worrying about case. (e.g. Users could enter Maryland, maryland, MARYLAND or any other possible combination of lower and upper case characters. States may also contain leading and trailing white spaces. Hint: Store the State information in a multi- dimensional array. The program should continue to prompt the user to enter a state until “None” is entered. You will need to do some research to find the State birds and flowers. Here is a sample run:

      Enter a State or None to exit:
      Maryland
      Bird: Baltimore Oriole
      Flower: Black-eyed Susan
      Enter a State or None to exit:
      Delaware
      Bird: Blue Hen Chicken
      Flower: Peach Blossom
      Enter a State or None to exit:
      None

Submission requirements:

Your deliverables include all Java files (.java) and a single word (or PDF) document. The Java files should be named appropriately for your applications. Your word document should include screen shots showing the successful compiling and running of each application, and a detailed description of the test plan for each application. The screen shots should document your use of the IDE. The test plan should include the input, expected output, actual output and if the test case passed or failed. Submit your files to the Homework 4a assignment area no later than the due date listed in the calendar.
