This is a technical documentation on PTIDEJ1 entry-points.
PTIDEJ stands for Pattern Traces Identification, Detection, and Enhancement in Java.
PTIDEJ is mainly written by Yann-Gaël Guéhéneuc.
Many thanks to Hervé Albin-Amiot for the Pattern Description Language and PatternsBox;
to Matthieu Bacqueville, Nicolas Benoit, Jean-Sébastien Brunner and Christian Gossart for the implementation within Eclipse.
We welcome all feedback.
PTIDEJ is a tool for object-oriented software design quality. PTIDEJ shall allow:
PTIDEJ offers several distinctive entry-points:
patterns.PatternRepositoryoffers methods to list and to manipulate known patterns abstract models (see Gamma et al. ).
patterns.PatternIntrospectoroffers methods to create a model from a list of class-files. The
jut.viewer.core.ProjectLoaderViewerPanel.build()method demonstrates a typical use of the
patterns.PatternIntrospectorclass. The idea is to construct an instance of the
PatternIntrospectorclass, to use the
patterns.util.TypeLoaderclass to build instances of class
ClassFilerepresenting the class files in a directory, and to build the model of the class files using the
jtu.ui.kernel.Patternclass offers methods to build a graphical representation of a pattern (subclass of class
patterns.kernel.Pattern) or of a model of class files (class
jtu.viewer.core.ViewerPanel.setCurrentPattern(patterns.kernel.Pattern)method demonstrates a typical use of the
jtu.ui.kernel.Patternclass. An instance of class
jtu.ui.kernel.Patternis created with a given instance of a (subclass of) class
patterns.kernel.Pattern, a given instance of a concrete factory for the graphic primitives (either
jtu.ui.primitive.awt.PrimitiveFactoryfor AWT primitives or
jtu.ui.primitive.swt.PrimitiveFactoryfor SWT primitives), and a given layout algorithm. The instance of class
jtu.ui.kernel.Patternis then built and displayed in a given canvas (either
jtu.viewer.core.AWTCanvasfor AWT or
1 PTIDEJ stands for "breakfast" (in french argot) and is pronounced "tE-dAzh
