From the Author:

So what is object technology really about?
My book is about the strengths and weaknesses of some major object technologies. It dispels some of the myths of object technology and gives you ways to make the best use of it. I hope readers will find the many perspectives in it interesting and useful. If we really can't produce quality software economically, what is the point? My book is different to the many others because it is not just a glowing review and hype about objects. Yes OT is a good technology, but there is more to it than that. We still need to get many other things right. This book will not be popular with certain segments of the industry, because it gets to the truth, but I wrote it because I felt it needed writing, and the industry needs its message if computing is to become a respectable profession.

If you want the truth behind programming in general and object technology in particular, you cannot afford to miss my book.

From the Back Cover:


1426J-2

Object technology appears to be a bewildering field in constant turmoil. But the core concepts of object-oriented programming endure as a paradigm for advanced programming methodology. By analyzing and comparing three different object-oriented languages, Objects Unencapsulated probes the core of object technology to examine how various language features affect software productivity.

Objects Unencapsulated examines and compares the strengths and weaknesses of Java, Eiffel, and C++. Topics covered include:

  • Objects, classes, modules, and types.
  • Features and interfaces.
  • Inheritance and genericity.
  • Concurrency and garbage collection.

Grounded by his belief that true innovation demands constant re-evaluation, Ian Joyner strips away the superficial distinctions between these languages to find the essence of object-oriented programming. He explains the facts behind the many controversies that an object-oriented practitioner constantly faces. By explaining some essential theory in practical terms, Objects Unencapsulated exposes the principles of the object-oriented paradigm.
