This is, quite simply, the definitive reference on the most important development in software technology for the last 20 years: object-orientation.A whole generation was introduced to object technology through the first edition of this book. This long-awaited new edition retains the qualities of clarity, practicality and scholarship that made the first an instant best-seller, but has been thoroughly revised and expanded. Among the new topics covered in depth are: Concurrency, distribution, client/server and the Internet; object-oriented databases; design by contract; fundamental design patterns; finding classes; the use and misuse of inheritance; abstract data types; and typing issues. The book also includes completely updated discussions of reusability, modularity, software quality, object-oriented languages, memory management, and many other essential topics.All software developers and computer science students, worldwide.

From the Publisher:
Now updated to integrate examples taken from the many new object-oriented extensions of common programming languages, this volume includes coverage of coding techniques for newly created dialects of C, FORTRAN, Ada, Pascal, Modula-2, SmallTalk, Simula 67, LISP, and Eiffel.

The definitive reference on the most important new technology in software!

"While the original version of OOSC is a classic, OOSC 2/E is destined to overshadow it and all other general introductions . . . literally an epic work." -James C. McKim, Jr., Hartford Graduate Center

"Compelling. Extremely well-written and literate . . . I recaptured that same sense of intellectual excitement I felt reading the first edition for the first time." -Paul Dubois, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Editor, Scientific Programming Dept., Computers in Physics

"The definitive tome on Object-Orientation . . . the finest piece of writing and thinking about this vast subject . . . Bertrand has a lot to say of great importance and says it well in this significantly revised book." -Richard Wiener, University of Colorado, Colorado Springs, Editor, Journal for Object-Oriented Programming

  • Concurrency, distribution, client-server and the Internet.
  • Object-oriented databases, persistence, schema evolution.
  • Design by contract: how to build software that works the first time around.
  • A study of fundamental design patterns.
  • How to find the classes and many others topics of object-oriented methodology.
  • How to use inheritance well and detect misuses.
  • Abstract data types: the theory behind object technology.
  • Typing: role, issues and solutions.
  • More than 400 references to books, articles, Web pages, newsgroups; glossary of object technology.
  • And many new developments on the topics of the first edition: reusability, modularity, software quality, O-O languages, inheritance techniques, genericity, memory management, etc.
