Join Peggy Fisher for an in-depth discussion in this video Challenge: Name finder, part of Java Essential Training for Students.
- It's time for another challenge.…In this challenge, I would like you to write…a complete Java program that includes…a separate method used to find a specific name…in a two-dimensional table.…We'll call this the name search game.…In the exercise folder you will find the start of a program,…including a main method that contains a 2D array of names.…Your job is to write the method that takes two parameters,…a two-dimensional array of strings called name table…and a string called name to find.…
The method returns a Boolean value of true or false.…Your method should search the two-dimensional array of names…to check for a match with name to find.…Your program will ask the user to guess a name.…You'll use the method to search the array…and print out a message if the name was found.…Make sure you allow the user…to play the game more than once.…But before you actually turn this over to someone,…make sure you test it using a valid value that is found…and a value that's not found.…
I've estimated about 15 minutes for this activity.…
