Hi Fellow EE'rs

Im looking for help to get the following code working to handle a queue and be able to print the queue contents, as I understand would the best way to do this to have a 2nd temp view and pass the values out display the value and pass into the 2nd queue?

Anyway heres the code..

public interface Queue  
 
{   public boolean queueEmpty();  
     public boolean queueFull();  
     public void queueAdd(Object x);  
     public Object queueTake();  
     public Object queueShow();  
}  

-----------------------------------------------------

public class ContigQ implements Queue  
 
{  public static final int SIZE = 1000;  
private int max;  
private Object data[];  
private int head;  
private int tail;  
}

-----------------------------------------------------

public class LinkQueue implements Queue  
{  private Node head;  
    private Node tail;  
 
public LinkQueue()  
{  heal = null;  
    tail = head;  
}  
 
public boolean queueEmpty()  
{  return (head == null)  
}  
 
public boolean queueFull()  
{  return false;
}  

public void queueAdd(x)  
{   if (this.queueFull()) ;  
else  
{  Node temp = new Node(x, null);  
    if (head == null)  
            head = temp;  
    else tail.setNext(temp);  
    tail = temp;  
    }  
}  
 
public Object queueShow()  
{  if (this.queueEmpty()) ;  
 else return head.getContents();  
}  
 
public Object queueTake()  
{  if (this.queueEmpty()) ... ;  
else  
{  Node temp = head;  
    head = head.getNext();  
         if (head == null) tail = null;  
    return temp.getContents();  
    }  
}  
}

Many Thanks
Steve

public interface Queue  
 
{   public boolean queueEmpty();  
     public boolean queueFull();  
     public void queueAdd(Object x);  
     public Object queueTake();  
     public Object queueShow();  
}

==========================================

public abstract class ContigQ implements Queue // class must be abstract
 
{  public static final int SIZE = 1000;  
private int max;  
private Object data[];  
private int head;  
private int tail;  
}

==========================================

public class LinkQueue implements Queue  
{
      // I suppose you already have this class...
      private static class Node {
            private Object o;
            private Node next;

            Node(Object o, Node next) {
                  this.o = o;
                  this.next = next;
            }

            void setNext(Node next) { this.next = next; }

            Node getNext() { return next; }

            Object getContents() {
                  return o;
            }
      }

      private Node head;  
    private Node tail;  
 
public LinkQueue()  
{  head = null;  // head, you wrote heal...
    tail = head;  
}  
 
public boolean queueEmpty()  
{  return (head == null); // corrected...
}  
 
public boolean queueFull()  
{  return false;
}  

public void queueAdd(Object x) // corrected...  
{   if (queueFull()) {}
      // you don't need to use "this" key word
      // also since you are sure that queue can't be full
      // you don't need to check this.
else  
{  Node temp = new Node(x, null);  
    if (head == null)  
            head = temp;  
    else tail.setNext(temp);  
    tail = temp;  
    }  
}  
 
public Object queueShow() {
      if (queueEmpty()) {
            return null;
      }
      else return head.getContents();  
}  
 
public Object queueTake()  
{  if (queueEmpty()) {
      return null;
      // or you can throw an Exception if you want.
   }
else  
{  Node temp = head;  
    head = head.getNext();  
         if (head == null) tail = null;  
    return temp.getContents();  
    }  
}

      // added method - String representation...
      public String toString() {
            StringBuffer s = new StringBuffer();
            Node n = head;
            while (n != null) {
                  s.append(n.getContents());
                  if (n.getNext() != null)
                        s.append(',');
                  n = n.getNext();
            }
            return s.toString();
      }
}

=========================================

public class Main {
      public static void main(String[] args) {
            LinkQueue queue = new LinkQueue();

            queue.queueAdd(new Integer(1));
            queue.queueAdd(new Integer(2));
            queue.queueAdd(new Integer(3));
            queue.queueAdd(new Integer(4));
            queue.queueAdd(new Integer(5));
            
            queue.queueTake();
            queue.queueTake();

            System.out.println(queue);
      
            // 3,4,5
      }
}
