Object Technology The first experience-based guide to building object-oriented frameworks Building Application Frameworks By providing reusable skeletons on which to build new applications, frameworks can save you countless hours and thousands (even millions) of dollars in development costs. Written and edited by some of the top names in the object-oriented programming world, this is the first complete study of building frameworks. Using examples drawn from successful implementations worldwide, it walks you through all the steps of a framework development project. Providing guidance on all key technical and business issues surrounding framework construction, it covers:
* Techniques for developing, integrating, and adapting frameworks
* Leveraging existing design and code
* Selecting and utilizing frameworks
* Tracking, controlling, and documenting framework development
* Maintaining, measuring, and controlling framework quality
* Training developers in the effective use of frameworks
* Evaluating frameworks and framework investments
