5. Working Memory 27 objects that want to be notified when the PCSAccount object's properties change. This list is managed by the PropertyChangeSupport object that the PCSAccount holds as a member (Why "usually?" If you use definstance to add the object to working memory and specify static as the final argument, then Jess will skip this step.) Of course, many (most) Java classes don't allow you to add PropertyChangeListeners to them, and so for many of the Java objects you'll add to working memory, Jess doesn't register itself with the object in any way. The object is filed away in working memory, and that's it. There are now two main scenarios of interest: an object in working memory can be modified from Jess code, or from Java code. Each of these scenarios can happen with or without PropertyChangeListeners, for a total of four cases. We'll discuss each of these four situations separately. The most important things to remember is that all of the steps discussed here

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
