Putting Design Principles to the Test (A Java based Case Study)
It’s time to consolidate on what we’ve been discussing in this series about design principles governing the class structure and package structure. In this article, I will present a sample case study in which we will develop a hypothetical application component and try to employ all the design principles we have learned so far, to come up with a reasonable robust design solution.
You can appreciate that it is well beyond the scope of the space for this article to present a large-scale project architecture encompassing all the complexities that can arise in a designing situation. So, I will try to pick a hypothetical application component and try to present a design for that component module. Well then, have your cup of coffee ready with you.
In the previous five articles, I have presented the design principles governing the class structure and packaging of several classes into different packages. In this section, we will recapitulate the principles that we have discussed so far.
