This publication additionally appears on the broader context of object-oriented (OO) layout and the way styles resolve general OO layout difficulties. It covers some of the rules of OO design—principles now not coated via so much books on Java—and exhibits you the way to use those ideas to make your code more straightforward to keep up and debug.

If you keep the message structure in the problem domain, then you'll eliminate the vast majority of get/ set methods, simply because "get" and "set" isn't something your domain experts do when solving most problems. When Are Accessors and Mutators Okay? If you must pass information between objects, encapsulate that information into other objects. A "get" function that returns an object of class Money is vastly preferable to one that returns a double. It's best if a method returns an object in terms of an interface that the object implements because the interface isolates you from changes to the implementing class.

If you make an instance variable public, then you can't change the field as the class evolves over time, because you'd break the external code that used the field. You really don't want to search out 1,000 uses of some class simply because you make a change to that class. Naive getter and setter methods are dangerous for the same reason that public fields are dangerous: They provide external access to implementation details. What if you need to change the type of the accessed field? You also have to change the return type of the accessor.

Before launching into the discussion of extends, I want to head off a few misconceptions. First, the next few sections talk in depth about how extends can get you into trouble. Since I'm focusing on the downside with such intensity, you may come to the conclusion that I think you should never use extends. That's not the case. I'm assuming you already are familiar with the upside of extends and its importance in 00 systems, so I don't talk about that upside at all. I don't want to qualify every statement I make with an "on the other hand," so please excuse me if I give the wrong impression at times.
