CMP 167 Project 2
In 1996 there was a program named ELIZA. It parodied a psychotherapist session, such that the user would type sentences and the program used those words to compose a question. Your project will be similar in concept.
What you need to know to complete the project:
- Use the Scanner class to retrieve input from the user
- Manipulate Strings
- Work with Arrays
- Loops for repetition
- If-Else for logical decision branching
- Using Classes and Methods
Program Details and Requirements:
ELIZA: Hello, my name is Eliza. What is your name? USER: Wonder Woman ELIZA: Hello, Wonder Woman. Tell me what is on your mind today in 1 sentence. USER: Today is Friday. ELIZA: Today seems important to you, so does Friday. Please tell me more. USER: Friday is a fantastic day. ELIZA: Friday and day seem to be on your mind. Let's talk about it. USER: Why do want me to talk about Friday? ELIZA: Does Why bother you? How about Friday? USER: No! ELIZA: WOW! Dramatic! No and No seem to be on your mind. Let's talk about it. USER: I want to talk about the project. ELIZA: I seems important to you, so does project. Please tell me more. USER: EXIT ELIZA: Do you want to run the session again? USER: No ELIZA: Goodbye, until next time
To have your project graded as per the rubric and earn points:
- Use the starter code to create your Prompt Bank and modify it to work with your project. (Note: remove any existing bugs and write additional code as needed)
- Your project should have 2 classes or more. 1 class is the starter code PromptBank, the other is your program’s logic.
- The initial greeting should say “Hello, my name is Eliza. What is your name?
- The user should enter their name.
- Then the program should greet the user by name and prompt them for input related to the therapy session “Hello **username. Tell me what is on your mind today in 1 sentence.”
- When the user submits their sentence your program should read in the line
- It should use the 1st word and last word from that line to form another prompt to the user by plugging those words into a statement or question randomly selected from the relevant array.
- Create methods that work with the starter code to replace BLANK1 and BLANK2 with the words from the line
- If the sentence the user enters ends with a ‘?’, the program should prompt the user with a question built using the 1st word and last word of their line.
- If the sentence the user enters ends with a ‘!’, the program should prompt the user with a statement that starts with “WOW! Dramatic! ” followed by the rest of the statement built using the 1st word and last word of their line.
- If the sentence the user enters ends with a ‘.’ or any other character, the program should prompt the user with a statement built using the 1st word and last word of their line.
- This process should be repeated until the user types “EXIT” as a response When the user types “EXIT” the user should be asked if they want to run the session again.
- If they say yes, upper or lower case, run the program from the beginning”
- If they say no, upper or lower case, say “Goodbye, until next time”
- Some of the things you’ll need to do to get the Project to work:
- Initialize your arrays to the appropriate length.
- Modify the existing methods in the starter code to populate the arrays by following the code comments
- Create methods to replace BLANK1 and BLANK2 in the sentence trunk you got from the array
