Spent about 20 min looking over this site. Provided good information on Object
Oriented design. The Design Strategies are a good tool to use for starting any

This site is inaccurately titled. It is definitely an interesting site for
concepts of object-oriented programming, but it does not detail software design
or construction. It is, however, a very interesting concepts sight that adds
several new and distinct perspectives to common OO paradigms.

I am a struggling CIS student in regards to learning Java. I went through the
motions in the classroom and passed with grades reflecting someone who was
making significant progress. I was having a terrible time trying to figure out
how I could really write a useful program in Java without understanding its
concepts. I had just purchased another book in order to look at the examples
(given enough examples, I can usually figure out what is going on). However,
after finding your site and reading the first two chapters and several other
sections that I had conceptual problems with, I believe I will be able to grasp
Java in a really useful way. I was impressed with the quality of content, the
order in which it was laid out, and the use of diagrams and pictures.

Technical Remarks:

This is basically what I?d call an e-book and the ?e? could stand for ?ease? of
use as well. I?m beginning to believe I can learn this program after all.
