Join Peggy Fisher for an in-depth discussion in this video Solution: Name finder, part of Java Essential Training for Students.
- So how did you make out with the challenge?…How is your name game working?…Let's take a look at my solution, and as always, remember…that your solution might be very different.…As you can see in the "main" method,…I have the two dimensional array of names,…and then I added some additional code.…I wanted to allow the user…to execute the program more than once,…so I declared a string variable, "response",…and set it equal to "y" the first time.…I also declare a string variable, "name",…that's gonna hold the name…the user would like to search for.…
My "while" loop says, while "response" is equal to a "y",…ask the user to enter the name to search for.…Then we'll read the name in, using the "name=in.nextline",…on line 32, then I call my "searchName" method,…and I give it the two dimensional array called "names"…as well as the name that I'm trying to search for.…If the value that comes back from the method is true,…I print out the message saying "The name was found";…otherwise, I print out "The name was not found".…
