Interface Design

<< Service Oriented Classes

Page 5: Component Oriented Classes

Component Oriented classes have the characteristics of Object Oriented classes, but have a THIN interface so they can be used in different contexts more easily.

Those different contexts include different code bases (e.g. COM, CORBA) and containers (e.g. web browsers).

Here is an example Component Oriented file handler implementation, called FileComponent:

public class FileComponent
    public setFileName( String fileName ) {...}
    public File getFileName() {...}
    public void setContent( String content ) {}
    public String getContent() {...}
