I was wondering if the javadoc for the game engine is up to date

 since i rely to much in viewing the javadoc for learning on how

the classes are used.


I was learning from the tutorial in the lessons tab and i got confused in

how the Room exit for the game is created because when i viewed the javadoc

the game exit is done by public void setExit(String direction, Room room) but

the lesson from the tutorial uses public void setExits(Room room, Room room).

You are looking at 2

You are looking at 2 different versions of the world of zuul game.  World of zuul version 1 is an example of a "bad" design, with the method signature

Room.setExits(Room west, Room east)

version 2 is an example of a "good" design, and has the signature

Room.setExit(String direction, Room exit)

Have a look at the exercise surrounding these two versions here:

Let me know if this helps.
