This book provides an in-depth study of actual object-oriented applications. Not exercises, examples or case studies, but actual projects which have led to products or class libraries. Seven complete projects are described across highly diverse areas of application - all used the full extent of object-oriented technology and were implemented in ISE Eiffel. Providing an insider's view of object-oriented development, the authors: provide a detailed study of the activities involved in bringing an object-oriented project to completion; discuss the pitfalls involved and candidly discuss the mistakes they made; contribute quantitative measurements; assess the relative importance of languages, tools, management practices and other factors. Most importantly, the authors offer precise descriptions of the softawre they built, including architectural diagrams, class interfaces, and in some cases the actual commented source code.

Written by key researchers in the field of object-oriented technology, this is the first book to provide an in-depth study of actual object-oriented applications -- projects which have led to products or class libraries. Technically detailed, it includes interesting source code extracts, specification of important classes, system structure diagrams, information about the analysis/design method used and extracts from the results of the analysis design, and relevant metrics (e.g., on reuse). Begins with a technical overview; then presents the details of seven significant O-O projects from diverse fields of application -- a network surveillance and monitoring system; a system for broadband ISDN; a product modeling tool for CAD/CAM applications; a three-dimensional graphical animation system; a network optimization system using simulated annealing; a commercial knowledge-base system; and a set of classes addressing the thorny problem of time and data management. All projects used the full extent of object-oriented technology and were implemented in ISE Eiffel. MARKET: For professional programmers, software engineers, and students of computer science interested in object-oriented techniques.
