Legacy Design Forum
The Set/Get Question



This page contains an archived index of one topic of the Design Forum (formerly called the Flexible Java Forum). If you wish to participate in discussions, please visit the new Artima Forums.

This discussion concerns the merits of methods that give the clients a view of an object's attributes (such as Set/Get methods) versus methods that perform services. To get a background for this discussion, read the sections Set/Get: Thumbs Up and Set/Get: Thumbs Down in my article, "Impressions of SD '98" published in JavaWorld.
