Date News Item
new news item 11/17/2003 Final grades have been posted. This includes homework 10. You'll need the login and password sent in email earlier to view them.
11/13/2003 The paper Design by Contract in JML that was passed out on Wednesday is also available from the JML web site. You can also download a copy of JML for your home computer, as explained there too. If you do that, get JML 4.1_rc3. You need to use J2SDK 1.4.1 to run this (1.4.2 doesn't completely work).

2/11/2003 You can get all of the details on Java's syntax from the Java Language Specification Second Edition (Addison-Wesley, 2000). See also the Java section of the course resources page.

Questions and Answers

Often a student will ask a question that provokes an answer of use to other students. When this happens, in addition to answering the student directly, we will post the question and answer on the Q & A page. Urgent answers will also be sent to the course mailing list.


We will regularly send course-related email to your department Unix account. You are responsible for reading email on this account at least once per day during the week. If it is not convenient for you to read email on this account you are responsible for forwarding your email to a more convenient location.


Prompt, frequent and constructive feedback is essential to success in any endeavor. For this reason we strive to grade your work in a timely manner. We would also appreciate your feedback on the course. Please use this anonymous form to provide constructive criticism and offer suggestions (or dole out praise :-)). You can, of course, also email your comments.
