applicationDefine the interfaces between the layersLet each layer be developed by a separate team relying n the interface promised by the adjacent layersKeep it flexible so that the interface can be changed as it is hard to get the interfaces perfect the first time aroundFirst create the large classes like the Database Connection Manager Log Manager etc reuired for each layer then write the fine

then refactor the code slowly so that it becomes amenable to automated testing2 If a project keeps breaking repeatedly automated test cases emulating the user actions will help reduce the incidents3 Ensure that the automated tests are updated with change in codelogic whenever reuiredtherwise these would become useless4 It is important to have a Continuous Intergration so that the automated tests

informationr supporting tools Tools and Infrastructure touches Slice by Slice on the many areas that developers talk about butnly some practice Some items in this chapter would seem that no brainer common sense to modern developers yet a huge wake up call to developers who may not be as in touch with the industry The most compelling items in this section in my Angels Flight (Legion of Angels
