What is an appropriate tool for testing and debugging concurrent programs?

  • Eclipse is possible, but steep initial learning curve and can become a crutch
  • JaVis is possible, but it seems to exist as a paper more than as an implementation


What is an appropriate tool for visualizing programming concepts?

  • BlueJ has some interesting features (designed for teaching, gives UML diagrams, allows for interactive testing)
  • JaVis is possible, but may not be in a usable form yet


Should an API be provided for students for some areas?

  • File I/O
  • GUIs (especially early in the course)
  • Networking


What is an appropriate number and difficulty of projects?
