In Java, methods or constructors are often overloaded to provide default parameter values or alternate parameter types. The various overloads typically call one mother method or constructor which supports all possible parameters. I call that the DEBE method/constructor even when the number of parameters is not excessive.
The classic book Thinking Forth by Leo Brodie, contains a cartoon poking fun at some DEBE styles of software design where too much functionality is packed into a method or class. The cartoon shows what appears to be a blender. The machine is labeled Processor. Beneath is a toggle switch. One side is labeled food and the other word.
|recommend book⇒Thinking Forth|
|This book is about using the Forth language, but it is much more. It is about how to solve problems, how to decompose problems into smaller problems, how to use bottom up thinking, how to write re-usable code. This is one of the all time classic programming books written by a master programmer.|
|Greyed out stores probably do not have the item in stock. Try looking for it with a bookfinder.|
