Question 1

1 / 1 pts

T/F? - Private properties are not inherited into a child class.ou Answered

  •   True
  •   False

Question 2

1 / 1 pts

Sometimes inheritance is unnecessary and you should just create a well written Interface instead.  

Note: we're talking of Interfaces like Comparable and such, not the "public interface" Correct!

  •   True
  •   False

Question 3

1 / 1 pts

What is true about the protected keyword in terms of inheritance?t!

  •  Protected items are accessible within the scope of child classes but inaccessible outside to outside scope.

Correct!

  •  If you don't use protected, you have to rely on the public interface of the parent class to access/use parent functionality

 

  •   Protected members of a class have extra security built in via the compiler.

Correct!

  •  Shockingly ... protected properties and methods are accessible within the scope of anything that shares the package of the class.

This is actually true ... free point ... I forgot to mention this in lecture because I often don't use packages in my sample code for the sake of time.  This is a Java feature.

  •   Protected members are inaccessible in child classes, we use private to make them accessible.

(Solved): CSE205 Quiz 4 - Encapsulation  ...


CSE205

Quiz 4 - Encapsulation  

 Question 1

1 / 1 pts

Which is the best/most complete definition of encapsulation?

  •   Encapsulation is used to control how one may access and interact with an object of a class.  Data and internal helper methods are hidden in the back-end of the class, and a public interface is developed to provide controlled access and functionality.
  •   Encapsulation is the process of developing the properties and methods of a class. 
  •   Encapsulation is used to control how one may access and interact with an object of a class.  Data is accessed through getters and setters.
  •   It describes the idea of bundling data and methods that work on that data within a class.

Question 2

1 / 1 pts

Determine the best description of the qualities of getters & setters:orrect!

  •   They allow us to "black-box" access to properties in an object.  Users don't need to know how the data is being stored, they just need a public interface to work with relevant data.  This mentality can also control read & write access and allow us an opportunity to defend against invalid data.
  •   They allow us to indirectly access properties in an object
  •   They allow us to control how properties are stored in a class and who can read and write the data.
  •   Getters and Setters provide read-only or write-only or read/write access to the data stored in the class.  While they are short and seem trivial this is actually a very powerful tool at our disposal.  Direct access to properties invites all sorts of issues and side-effect, similar to using global variables.  Our data is less secure when we don't use getters and setters.

Question 3

1 / 1 pts

T/F? - Proper use of Encapsulation helps enhance our data security.rrect!

  •   True
  •   False 

 Question 4

1 / 1 pts

How do we achieve Encapsulation?orrect!

  •   Proper use of Access/Visibility Modifiers 
  •   Using only private properties
  •   Use of the abstract keyword
  •   Through the use of inheritence

Question 5

1 / 1 pts

At face value this class seems ok ... but really it's not... select all that are true

public class Student

{

        private PersonalInfo information;

       

        public PersonalInfo getInfo()

        {

                 return this.information;

        }

}

  •   We should decompose PersonalInfo and store the contents directly into student.  There's no point in having a "has a" relationshiporrect!
  •   Returning the PersonalInfo reference can open this Student to direct manipulation of their data. A more robust public interface should be created to protect and control access to PersonalInfo information.
  •   This is just a standard getter ... nothing wrong with that.
  •   This is technically encapsulated properly, but could have very negative consequences.

 Question 6

1 / 1 pts

Tell me about this code...

public class Test

{

        private int positiveNum;

       

        public void SetNumber(int value)

        {

                 if(value >= 0)

                         this.positiveNum = value;

                 else

                         throw new IllegalArgumentException("Value can't be negative!");

        }

}

Correct!

  •   This code maintains encapsulation
  •   This code breaks encapsulation 
  •   code is vulnerable 
  •   This code does not work/would not compile

Question 7

1 / 1 pts

Match the visibility modifiers to their best description
