Design and test a reference array, Data Structure & Algorithms

Instructions

  • Design and test a reference array. Reference array stores the references to user supplied objects of different types. Just think it as a heterogeneous array which can contain elements of different types.
  • Exceptions must be used to handle all type of errors that may be encountered while using the array. The main errors are:
    • No object is found while trying to access an object from the array at a given position
    • The index may be beyond the array limits.
  • The necessary classes for the problems and also the driver main function are given. You have to provide the implementations of the member functions whose actual code is missing.
