Greenfoot Coding Contest 2009

Greenfoot is a combination between a framework for creating two-dimensional grid assignments in Java and an integrated development environment (class browser, editor, compiler, execution, etc.) suitable for novice programmers. While Greenfoot supports the full Java language, it is especially useful for programming exercises that has a visual element. In Greenfoot object visualization and object interaction are the key elements.
