Group proposal, Java Reflection

This week for the lab we used Java reflection to remove the dependency on if statements in one file. We also created our own store and pizza without editing any of the source files. I originally had an issue building the lab because my project files were in an extra folder. So when i built  it my build folder ended up with only the properties file. Someone pointed it out to me and I removed the extra folder and then had no problems after that.

This week my group also finished up our group proposal. We decided that we wanted to make a theme that is like a photo gallery. The theme would layout pictures nicely on a page and when you hover over them a description of the picture will be overlaid on the bottom of the picture.

This week we also read "5 Reasons Every Developer Should Contribute to OpenMRS" by Shruthi Pitta. I thought this article was interesting because I never really thought about this. Lawyers are encouraged to do pro-bono work to help people, so if Software Engineers can help people with there ability why shouldn't they also be encouraged to do pro-bono work?

For next week I plan on getting a good start on my individual project. I hope to get most of my project done. I plan on running into issues with just getting my code to work and figuring out how the code thats there already works. For next week I also plan on reading the article "GUI Architectures" by Martin Fowler.
