Programming principles for Java methods

Topics I want to cover in the future about Java methods:

  • Minimalistic coding style [1] [2] [3] [4]
  • “Fail early” (or “fail fast”) principle [1] [2]
  • “Return early” principle [1] [2] [3]
  • Object creation methods (to allow final)
  • Type generic methods (process a T vs create a T)
  • Functional style: stateless static methods vs interfaces
  • Javadoc: On interface not implementation
  • Method naming guidelines
  • Strategy parameters (often anonymous interface implementations)
  • Exception handling methods (try-catch-finally, throwing exceptions)
  • How to avoid setter/getter madness
  • Method chaining API style (static factory method, builder methods)
