Load the class dynamically and get the annotated classes

import com.this.class.Factory;
      public boolean process(Set<? extends TypeElement> annotations, RoundEnvironment roundEnv) {

        // Itearate over all @Factory annotated elements
        for (Element annotatedElement : roundEnv.getElementsAnnotatedWith(Factory.class)) {

This works when I import the annotation class in the annotation processor. But when the annotation class is loaded dynamically doesn’t works

Class<?> Factorry = class.forName("com.this.class.Factory")
 public boolean process(Set<? extends TypeElement> annotations, RoundEnvironment roundEnv) {

        // Itearate over all @Factory annotated elements
        for (Element annotatedElement : roundEnv.getElementsAnnotatedWith(Factory.class)) {

How to pass the annotated Factory.class to getElementsAnnotatedWith when the class is loaded using class.forName()

How to call the whole subclass (not one method) for the main class, is that possible? Error: cannot access

I have an assignment that I need to have two basic forms and let people type in some data and process them, finally get a report. The first basic form is for typing in the costumer number and the costumer’s name, and the second should put in job code, working hour and cost for parts. The thing I get confused is I don’t know if I should let my subclass do the second basic form. Moreover, either use subclass to subclass to do the second basic form or not, I don’t know how to call the whole subclass… Here is the code that I try to use the subclass for only some calculation, but there is error that show in a part of the constructor that cannot be accessed.

Java: Date from unix timestamp

I need to convert a unix timestamp to a date object.
I tried this:

java.util.Date time = new java.util.Date(timeStamp);

Timestamp value is: 1280512800

The Date should be “2010/07/30 – 22:30:00” (as I get it by PHP) but instead I get Thu Jan 15 23:11:56 IRST 1970.

How should it be done?

Traverse and print matrix by java columns

How can I traverse an array by columns? I have a hard time traversing an array and traversing by rows and that is printing if it is, but by columns for example in the matrix.

Going through and printing by rows is like this:

for (int i = 1; i <= size; i++) {
        for (int j = 1; j <= size; j++) {
            System.out.print(matrix[i][j] + " ");

1  2  3  4  5
6  7  8  9  10
11 12 13 14 15
16 17 18 19 20
21 22 23 24 25

First print the first column 1 6 11 16 21, then the second and so on.

Can’t import java.lang.reflect in maven project?

I’m trying to import java.lang.reflect in a java file of a maven project, but I get “error cannot find symbol” on the import line. It can’t find java.lang either. This is a built in Java lib, right? I didn’t think I needed to add any dependencies for a default java lib. Is there a certain dependency I need to define to gain access to this lib?

is Array is Abstract data structure [on hold]

a-Define the term Abstract Data Type (ADT), show why an array can be considered an ADT and the difference between the concrete representation as an array and the abstract as a list.
b-Give two situations why an array can never be used as a data structure, and how a linked list structure is the optimal option.

This started out as just a MPG calculator but now I am trying to make it calculate the MPG for up to 5 stops in a trip, and then at the end of the 5 stops, calculate the final MPG for the trip. Right now it will calculate the MPG for the first stop, but afterwards it leaves out the inputs for the text fields 1-4. I tried setting the getText in the calculateMPG to the correct text fields but it still didn’t change the output. I also thought about just making several methods for each leg but I wasn’t sure if there was a more efficient way to do it. Thanks for the help.
