Advanced Aspects of Object-Oriented Programming (summer term 2015)


  • The result of the second exam can be found here. If you are interested in reviewing the your exam, please contact me.

  • The results of the first exam can be found here. The review of the exam will be possible Monday, 7. September 2015 in 34-420 between 17:00 and 17:45. Contact me if there is any problem.

  • There seams to be an incompatibility between the Common JML-Tools (tested with version 5.5) and Java 8. If you get an error about malformed class-files and bad constant tags, try using a Java version 7 JDK.

  • The date and time of the alternative exercise slot is decided. The alternative exercise will take place on Tuesdays at 17:15 in 34-420.

Old Announcements

  • I created a Foodle for the alternative date of the exercise. If you cannot participate in the Wednesday exercise, please fill out the Foodle as soon as possible and write me an email so I can contact you when the decision is final.


This lecture furthers knowledge and skills in the domain of object-oriented software development. Focus is on operational semantics of object-oriented languages, modularity and encapsulation, typing and type systems, and specification of program properties including tools and techniques supporting verification and checking. Further information is available in the “Modulhandbuch” for Bachelor & Master Studies.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch with the contact person listed below in case of questions or problems.


The lecture will take place on Tuesdays in room 48-462 at 11:45.

The lecture is structured into the following chapters. The slides for the chapters will usually be made available at least a day before the lecture.

  1. Introduction
  2. Objects, Classes, Inheritance
  3. Subtyping and Parametric Types
  4. Object Structures, Aliasing, and Encapsulation
  5. Specification and Checking
  6. Concurrency and Distribution (see also slides on JCoBox)
  7. Program Frameworks
  8. Component Software


The exam will be a written exam this year. It will cover the content of the lecture as well as the content of the exercises. The date of the exam is the 25.08.2015 9:00 in 24-102. In autumn there will be a second exam (Nachklausur) on 08.10.2015 9:00 in 01-006.


The practice aims at consolidating acquired knowledge with the help of exercises. Students will present their solutions and discuss them with the tutor. You are allowed to work in groups. For group work, please send your solution in only once.

The exercise session takes place on Wednesdays, 11:45 in room 48-462. An alternative session will take place on Tuesday, 17:15 in room 34-420 (we will cover the same material that we cover on Wednesdays).
