Download Why You Should Use a Money Class.
This week is focused on some of the business constructs useful in your code.
Most of the ideas from today’s show came from the following sources:
- Martin Fowler’s Money Class from Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture
- The IEEE Software article When to Make a Type, by Martin Fowler
- UPDATE: I found some sample code for a Money class, by
some guyJody Garnett ( can’t find it on Google again, I’ll update it laterI finally found it on archive.org)
- IBM’s BigDecimal implementation, their JSR, and it’s inclusion in JDK 1.5
