Objects in Action: Commercial Applications of Object-oriented Technologies
Software developers and managers intrigued with the potential of object-oriented technology will find Objects in Action an exciting eye-opener. The 19 real-life applications showcased in this book prove unequivocally that object-oriented technology has finally moved from the realm of the theoretical to the world of full-scale, working applications.
In a contest held in conjunction with the 1992 Object World Conference and sponsored by Computerworld and the Object Management Group, major companies submitted case studies describing how they had successfully put object-oriented technology to work. The top 19 entries form the basis for Objects in Action. Coming from a broad spectrum of businesses and industries, the applications featured here include, among others an object-oriented analysis simulator from Boeing Defense and Space Group; a smelter information system from Alumax; an executive concessions information system from United Artists Theatre; and a software engineering environment from Broussais University Hospital.
Each case study provided a description of the application, the role object-oriented technology played in its formation, and practical information about the development process. Through introductions to the various categories of applications, the authors offer their insights, provide perspective, and reveal the common thread that ties these diverse applications together.
This, impressive display of important object-oriented applications will prove an inspiration to readers and will stimulate further advancements in the practical application of object-oriented technology.
