CS106A Handout 37 Spring 2011 May 23 rd , 2011 Assignment 7: FacePamphlet The original assignment was written by Mehran Sahami and then revised by Eric Roberts and Chris Piech. In this assignment we will build FacePamphlet, the CS106A Social Network. As an assignment FacePamphlet has two goals. The first is to give you an opportunity to implement an interactive application that uses a graphical user interface, complete with buttons and various kinds of text fields. The second is to give you the chance to write a social networking application, similar to Facebook, that lets users from the CS106A community communicate with one another over the network. Your application will, of course, be a simpler version—a pamphlet-sized application instead of a book. This is your final assignment, and it’s designed so that it can be completed in about a week’s time. However, given the stress that always comes with the end of the quarter, we’re allowing you to hand in your completed assignment as late as Wednesday, June 8 th at 11:30 a.m., which is the time your final exam, had I been giving one, would have ended. Note you can’t use any late days at all, and the 11:30 a.m. deadline is firm . In order to ensure that you’ll be okay and not leave too much until the end, we require that you submit a partial solution— one that simply renders the west panel without any user interaction—by Wednesday, June 1 st at 5:00 p.m. Your section leader will acknowledge receipt of the checkpoint, and reach out if and only if he or she foresees any problems. (The checkpoint will otherwise not be graded.) Checkpoint Due: Wednesday, June 1 st at 5:00 p.m. Due Wednesday, June 8 th at 11:30 a.m. Overview of the FacePamphlet application When you get the entire program working, the FacePamphlet application presents a graphical user interface that looks like the one shown in Figure 1. In this example, I (this is Eric Roberts speaking, not Jerry) have already logged in as eroberts , and have set my image and status. The display tells me that I have seven friends—the virtual cs106a user who is automatically a friend to everyone in the class along with six other friendly folks. As of now, my " wall" on the right is empty, because no one has yet written anything on it.

The interactors along the left side of the window control most of the operation of my FacePamphlet application. I could, for example, change my status by entering new data into the status field and clicking the Change My Status button. If I want to report that I am now playing with FacePamphlet, I can type playing with facepamphlet into the text field and then click the Change My Status button to bring me to the state shown in Figure 2. Since Chris is in my list of friends, I can visit his page by selecting
