The String Manipulation Project is a programming project designed by The Renegade Coder for Java beginners. Topics covered by the project come from content that can be found in the Java Basics series. Therefore, students who have completed this series should feel comfortable tackling this project.
The String Manipulation Project comes with the following:
A 5-page PDF which includes:
- A problem statement
- 8 string-related methods for implementation with examples
- Tips & tricks for implementing each method
In the String Manipulation Project, you’re asked to implement 8 different string manipulation methods using your knowledge of strings and loops. The following subsections detail the primary topics in more detail.
Strings are a core feature of just about every programming language, so it’s important to know how to work with them. Students who choose to tackle this project will become more familiar with topics like ASCII, hexadecimal, and indices. In addition, students will gain exposure to the Java API as they may need to use classes like StringBuilder, Character, and Integer.
For students looking for some reference material, The Renegade Coder has a lesson on reference types.
Like strings, loops are a basic feature of most programming languages, so all developers should understand how they work. Students who choose to tackle this project will become more familiar with topics like iteration, loop syntax, and conditions.
For students looking for some additional study material, The Renegade Coder has a lesson on loops.
