Summary

Java Method Concepts and Implementation

  • The squareValue method returns a value for use in another method
  • The duration of an identifier in memory depends on whether it is a parameter or local variable in a method body
  • The scope of an identifier in Java determines where it can be referenced in the program
  • Variables should be declared as locally as possible to limit accidental changes
  • When a method is called, the current method's execution halts until the called method is finished
  • It is recommended that each method performs one defined task and contains a reasonable amount of code
  • Methods should be tested separately before being added to the main program
  • An example is given of a method to prompt the user for a VAT code, which can be used in the main method
  • A more reusable method for input number in a range is presented in a separate class called NumInput
  • The Vat program calls the getInRange method from the NumInput class
  • The concepts covered in the text include method constructs and their implementation in Java, the difference between action and value methods, using parameters in Java methods, call-by-value parameter passing, and the scope and duration of variables
  • An extreme "functional" example demonstrates the use of methods in a more concise and functional manner
