HackerRank.com 30 Days of Code – Day 1: Data Types

Recently I’ve been going through the HackerRank.com 30 Days of Code course to learn Java. Below is my code for their Day 1 lesson.

After reviewing the code I think I would prefer to add some data type checking to ensure that the data accepted from scan.nextLine() is actually the data type that I expect. It passed the unit tests provided by HackerRank but I doubt this would pass negative testing in a Test Driven Development organization.

import java.io.*;
import java.util.*;
import java.text.*;
import java.math.*;
import java.util.regex.*;

public class Solution {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        int i = 4;
        double d = 4.0;
        String s = "HackerRank ";
        Scanner scan = new Scanner(System.in);

        /* Declare second integer, double, and String variables. */
        int j;
        double e;
        String t;

        /* Read and save an integer, double, and String to your variables.*/
        j = Integer.parseInt(scan.nextLine());
        e = Double.parseDouble(scan.nextLine());
        t = scan.nextLine();

        /* Print the sum of both integer variables on a new line. */
        System.out.println(i + j);

        /* Print the sum of the double variables on a new line. */
        System.out.println(d + e);
        /* Concatenate and print the String variables on a new line; 
        	the 's' variable above should be printed first. */
        System.out.println(s + t);
