None of these configurations are required for use in this class. These are just suggestions for things that may make your life easier in the long run.
assertstatements are ignored by the Java Virtual Machine. To enable (make active)
assertstatements, you must set a flag to the JVM. Go to Run -> RunConfiguration.. Select the Arguments panel, and in the box labeled VM arguments:, enter either
-ea. Apply the changes and close the dialog.
2. Javadoc - Javadoc is part of the Sun Java release, but you must tell Eclipse where to find it. Search for "javadoc.exe" (note that you may find it in two different locations - use either location). If you do not find it, you probably only have the jre and not the jdk installed. Download the Java 1.6 jdk. Next, in the Eclipse workbench, select Project -> Generate Javadoc and enter the location in the textbox underneath "Javadoc command:". For my computer, the correct location is: "C:\Sun\AppServer\jdk\bin\javadoc.exe". Hit finish and say "Yes To All" when asked if you want the Javadoc location to be in folder 'doc'.
