Data Acquisition/Scientific Computing Project
One solution would be to go through the Jython and ensure that these objects are not created in dummy mode: this is quite simple and is done in some places but makes the Jython look a bit messy. A better solution would be to see how many objects can be moved from Jython to Java/Spring: if this can be done, there is an existing mechanism to create dummy objects when running in dummy mode. This is less messy and has the advantage that live & dummy modes become more similar and testing in dummy mode can be more realistic.
So students in this project will:
- Inspect the Jython code and make a list of the live objects created and their type.
- Classify the objects into 2 groups where:
(a) there is an existing Java class that does the same thing
(b) there is no suitable existing Java class
