References for the test
Other then the class material, you can use the following resources for studying for the test:
• The book "An introduction to object-oriented programming" by Timothy Budd covers most terms and ideas we discussed in the course, mainly of the first part.
• You can find details of the design patterns we discussed either in the classical "Design Patterns" book by Erich Gamma et al., or simply on Wikipedia.
• Bjarne Stroustrup's books on C++ gives a very deep insight into the language and it's implementation, but cover much more material than what we discussed this semester.
• For Python and meta-classes, I recommend to use mainly the official Python web site, although several Python books are not bad. Obviously, you don't need the entire Python platform, just what that was discussed in class.
All the books mentioned above are found in the Arrane library.

Assignment 3 clarifications
• You are expected to write classes that implements the abstract classes XMethod, XClass, XObject, etc. You are not supposed to write .cpp files for these classes header files.
• The source code given for this assignment was compile and tested using standard GNU g++ compiler with version > 4. This version is compatible with the installations on CS dept. computers. We used this makefile to compile and build it. We assume that all source code files, including headers, are located in the same directory.
• Some development environments might show errors or warnings due to different configurations. The course staff cannot support each and every IDE. Please verify your work vs. the above standard configuration.
• Trying to implement all the features tested in main.cpp at once can be difficult. Try to start by implementing one feature at a time - Running functions from pointers, making classes, objects, invoking methods, using varargs, and so on.

Short instructions to how to read an image from a message part into a displayable format:
1. // tPart is a message part containing an image
2. byte[] tBuff = new byte[tPart.getSize()];
4. ImageIcon tImage = new ImageIcon(tBuff);
5. JLabel tImageLbl = new JLabel(tImage);
6. // tImageLbl is a displayable component
This code works for reasonably-sized images in supported formats (namely PNG and GIF).

Practical sessions next week
Leonid will be missing next week and I will replace him as TA. I will give two practical sessions on Monday, 11:00 - 12:00 and 18:00 - 19:00. The session on 19:00 - 20:00 will not be held next week.
