This comprehensive guide, developed at IBM's International Technical Support Center in San Jose, CA, is ideal for managers and developers looking to apply object-oriented methods in large-scale information technology environments. Demonstrating the ups, downs, and trade-offs of object-oriented methodologies, the authors provide a wealth of information that will help managers make choices about the resources and technologies available for application development. The book discusses the impact of object technology on management decisions with examples from real, full-scale environments in which productivity has increased from the use of this technology. Features of Object Technology: provides a solid explanation of the principles of object-oriented technology; describes and compares the methodologies in use in object-oriented development environments; analyzes the role of CASE tools in object-oriented development; presents the issues involved in building a user interface; includes a full chapter on the process of team building in object-oriented applications; details the use of a configuration management tool; and explains how qlegacy codeq can be reused in object-oriented environments.For example, an object model defines the classes, and a message flow diagram shows how classes collaborate to ... methodologies use a number of the following techniques: ac Functional (or process) decomposition ac Entity- relationship (E-R)anbsp;...
