In-Depth Information
To implement our object-oriented solution, we will decompose the problem into objects, each of which
do a tiny bit of work and delegate to another object. So we will start with a ShakespeareLineIterator that will
iterate over the lines of the texts. That will get passed to a ShakespeareAnthologyParser, which is responsible
for breaking the iterated lines into texts. Each text will get passed to a ShakespeareTextParser, which is
responsible for parsing the texts. It will have a method that will return a collection of ShakespeareText
instances. Those ShakespeareText instances will each provide their title, and a series of ShakespeareLine
instances. Each of those lines will contain a series of ShakespeareWord instances. The code for these classes
is given in Listing A-2.
