    Currently it’s 3.6. We generally upgrade versions they’re released and we’ve had the opportunity to test.

    We do the same with Java. Currently it’s the JDK 1.8.111.

    This was a really good idea for a quick blog post. Thanks for that.

    Comparing output in a JUnit test

    That’s correct. Output matching is either matches or doesn’t match. There’s no partial credit built in like there are in the other test types.

    The reason we went this way is that there wasn’t a good way to determine how to check how much of the output needed to be compared. Should each line be compared? Should each character be compared? What about extra characters? Should you count off for that? We just couldn’t think of a way to do this that would work for everyone.

    If you have something specific, you can write a JUnit test that captures output. You’d then be able to compare it however you want.

    It depends. You have two choices. You can either purchase problem credits or unlimited credits for a set number of students. In some cases it’s cheaper to pay a fraction of a cent per submission. In some cases it’s cheaper to get unlimited submissions for a set number of students.

    If you go with credits, you’ll pay a penny or less per submission depending on how many you order at a time. And to go ahead and answer the most common question about credits, no, they don’t expire and they do carry over from month to month. You also get 1,000 credits each month for free, although those do not carry over if you don’t use them.

    If you go with one of the unlimited plans then the submissions are still counted, but you’re not billed for each one. Your students can submit as many as they want and it won’t change what you’re charged.

    Yes, you can download the code. If you click on the “Hamburger” menu on the right side of the ClassCube editor there’s an option to download the code. This will give you a zip file with all of the code files from the problem you’re working on.

    It will just be the files though. You’ll still need to create an Eclipse project and import the files into that. We’ve got it in our future plans list to let you download the files as an Eclipse, Idea, or NetBeans project. But for now, it’s just the files.

    Once you do that you can copy and paste the code from Eclipse back into ClassCube. You can also drag and drop the file onto the ClassCube editor and it will load the contents.

    Best guess, you’ve probably turned off the starter code switch and not put any editable files in for your students.

    You’ll also see this error when you turn off the starter code on a Simple testing problem. Simple problems need the starter code so that ClassCube can build the test cases. If you want to use full files, and not starter code, you’ll need to either do output matching or build your own JUnit test files.
