I have read in many books that design should be transparent, changes should be transparent etc... But I am not very clear what 'transparency' actually means in this context. Can someone please clarify this with a example. One transparency I can think of the run time polymorphism in Java like

where we can see what the base type is pointing to just by looking at the code. Is this also transparency?

I drink two cappuccinos a day.Is that of any help to solve java problems??

I think you haven't gotten a response to your question because it is too general. Can you give an example of a book that says design should be transparent but does not explain what it means?
