Hi everyone

I am trying to find shortest path tree using Dijkstra algorithm in java. I found a class that find the shortest path, but another problem is that i want the program read graph data from a textfile and use these data to find the shortest path tree and as a result print a table with every point of graph, his weight and the connection with previous point of graph.

Could someone help how to modify the actual code, to read the data, and print the table as required. Thanks to all of you!!

**What I have tried:**

Reading data from a file will depend on its format. See Lesson: Basic I/O (The Java™ Tutorials > Essential Classes)[^] for examples of the different streams.

Quote:I created a class that find the shortest path

Are you sure it is your code ?

Found exact code at : Java Program for Dijkstra's shortest path algorithm | Greedy Algo-7 - GeeksforGeeks[^]

The problem with your question is that programming Dijkstra algorithm is much more complicated than reading data from file or printing what you want.

You show no attempt to solve your questions yourself, this look furiously like stealing work from others for your homework.

We do not do your HomeWork.

HomeWork is not set to test your skills at begging other people to do your work, it is set to make you think and to help your teacher to check your understanding of the courses you have taken and also the problems you have at applying them.

Any failure of you will help your teacher spot your weaknesses and set remedial actions.

Any failure of you will help you to learn what works and what don't, it is called 'trial and error' learning.

So, give it a try, reread your lessons and start working. If you are stuck on a specific problem, show your code and explain this exact problem, we might help.
