Our newest project is a Java example which we hope will serve the developer community as a tutorial for both the UML as well as the principles of object-oriented design. The example program is a calculator, chosen because of the wealth of design principles which can be demonstrated by this program while still keeping to a manageable size.
In this preview of our project you will find a working program and the beginnings of our discussion of the design. More will soon follow. Some of the object-oriented design principles we hope to discuss are:
In addition, some of the other topics we hope to discuss include UML design tools, Java IDE's, requirements, testing, and software metrics.
The project is open-source and uses the GPL license. Please read and understand the license if you are new to open-source. More details for developers will soon follow on these pages; for now, please visit the discussion forum for this project.
