So here I am and I've convinced my boss we need to do some OOAD and we come up with some documentation that shows the beginnings of our objects, methods and properties.  We pick a development language (Java) and start creating classes.

What do we do with them?  What do I create so that these classes are available to the development team for use in their classes?  Do I create a package of some sort of CourtObjects?

Thanks for any insight or direction!

RE: Implementation

Since you're using Java, you might have luck getting a better answer in the Java forum.  

Your objects should be organized in a package or multiple packages.  Although Java doesn't require you to use a package (I think), your applications won't scale well without them.  I assume that your code is new enough that you'll most likely want or need to make changes before too long.  If its reasonable to do so, I'd suggest just providing the .java files to your development team.  Although you could create a .jar, its probably unnecessary, maybe even unwise, as this stage.  That might depend on whether or not your development team will make changes to the code you're providing.  If they won't, and you expect the footprint of your methods to stay the same, then it wouldn't hurt to create a .jar file.  If you can provide some more information about your particular situation then I'll try to give you a better solution.
