Greetings everyone!

Background:

I got this uni project for printerjobs where i'm using singly linked list. the approch i'm taking is instead of declaring the varibles(Printer name, printer source, doc name etc..) in the node class i created another class called printer jobs and i only created a varible of object type. in printer jobs i have all the setters and getterin there instead of the node class.

when adding i add the printerjob object which have values of (Printer name, printer source, doc name etc..) to data object in node class and so on....

PrinterJob myPrinterJob = new PrinterJob("New Printer Job");
myPrinterJob.setJobNo(1);
myPrinterJob.setJobPrio(1);
myPrinterJob.setJobSource("CPA1");
myPrinterJob.setDocName("EasyProgramming.doc");
myPrinterJob.setDocSize("3 MB");
Passing object to link list but....


myPrinterQueue.addToTail(myPrinterJob);

PrinterJob myPrinterJob2= new PrinterJob("New Printer Job");
myPrinterJob.setJobNo(1);

and so on................

Problem:

Now i'm implenting my program in dos prombt, so i want to add unlimited number of data with having to create new printerjob object everytime when i'm adding i want it to create itself everytime heres the link of my app

I mean instead of creating fixed number of objects data type inside the file i want to be able to store/pass objects in the node!

Object myObject= new Object();
List.addToTail(myObject)

but what i want is a way where i can make/create objects new object everytime when adding!

i hope you understode what i meant

If you wanted an 'auto-initialise' facility how would it know which values to initialize to? All you could do is provide default values and get the job number from the list size:

//overridden (no arg)

public Node addToTail() {

     PrinterJob myPrinterJob = new PrinterJob("New Printer Job");
     myPrinterJob.setJobNo(getSize());
     //etc
     Node node = new Node(myPrinterJob);
     // set pointers etc.
     return node;

}
