Funding for student to develop a Java Class Browser to aid in the instruction
of object-oriented principals. It will be capable of browsing Java source
files and Java class files and will be portable across multiple platforms.
As the number of university programs using Java as the introductory
object-oriented programming language has increased, the need for an instructional
class browser has become apparent. CoffeeBar is a Java based class browser
intended for teaching object-oriented concepts. It can browse the system
classes included in the Java distribution, student compiled Java bytecode,
as well as Java source. By using a familiar browser-like navigation system,
CoffeeBar is able to present all attributes of a class in a manner which
is clear and understandable to the Java or object-oriented novice.
Current Status as 0f 3/98
CoffeeBar is currently at version 0.8. It can browse system classes
(meaning those classes in the CLASSPATH), Java bytecode (.class files),
and Java source (.java files).
