Modern applications can be complex and working on a programming team can raise that complexity even further. Classes offer a way to reduce that complexity by isolating teams from each other’s work. For example, one team can develop a class that includes all the necessary properties and methods for connecting the application to a database. Another team might develop a class that utilizes a remote Web service, such as package tracking at UPS or FedEx.
Discuss possible classes that might be used in a distributed application, such as e-commerce, order handling or inventory management. You may include the two mentioned above and be creative in your posts. Suggest properties and methods for these classes and explain how the class might be used.
In your replies to fellow students, suggest additional classes that might be applicable, and discuss additional properties and methods that could be added to their classes.
