A concise and readable primer, The Object-Oriented Thought Process lays the foundation in object-oriented concepts and then explains how various object technologies are used.
Early chapters introduce object-oriented concepts, then cover abstraction, public and private classes, reusing code, and developing frameworks. Later chapters cover building objects that work with databases and distributed systems.
Written by a developer for developers who want to make the leap to object-oriented technologies, The Object-Oriented Thought Process provides a solutions-oriented approach to object-oriented programming. Readers will learn to understand the proper uses of inheritance and composition, the difference between aggregation and association, and the important distinction between interfaces and implementations.
When the first edition of this book was written in 1997 with Y2K approaching it focused on exposing structured programmers and managers to object-oriented programming -- before it was clear that OOP would become dominant.
In the past 20 years a variety of alternatives or variations on OOP have emerged. This new edition discusses how object-oriented programming has evolved and adapted to remain a major force in development.
