Suitable for an undergraduate introductory course on Object-Oriented Programming; assumes familiarity with C++ syntax and some general programming experience. This practical guide drives home the essential concepts and principles of object-oriented programming development, helping users understand the basic paradigms necessary to build a strong foundation in this cutting-edge software world, and giving them the tools and know-how to work and succeed in any O-O environment.

Drives home the essential concepts of object-oriented program development, so programmers can work in any O-O environment. This book helps programmers understand the object-oriented paradigm underlying C++ in depth, and then translate those abstract object-oriented concepts to real-world solutions in many problem domains they may encounter. It introduces the fundamental concepts of object-oriented programming, including classes, objects, O-O analysis and design. It explains data abstraction and shows how C++ implements it. It describes initialization and garbage collection as generic concepts, and as they are implemented in C++. In addition, it introduces inheritance and multiple inheritance, operator overloading, and other central O-O concepts -- and shows how object-orientation makes code reuse possible.. Once readers understand these fundamentals, the book presents extensive coverage of how to leverage object-oriented features to develop more effective code in C++, Eiffel, and other languages. This book is ideal for any programmer who wants to become more proficient with object-oriented programming or C++, including students, procedural programmers, or C++ programmers who do not currently rely on C++ object-oriented capabilities.From the Back Cover:
Learn object-oriented programming the way commercial developers do it!
C++: Effective Object-Oriented Software Construction has one goal: to help you understand the C++ object-oriented paradigm in depth, so you can translate object concepts to practical solutions, no matter what software development environment you encounter.
This book introduces the fundamentals of object-oriented design/programming in the context of real-world C++ software development, presenting proven strategies for using object languages to engineer elegant, high-quality software as quickly and efficiently as possible. You'll learn about:
* Classes, objects, and data abstraction
* Single and multiple inheritance, generic programming, and error management
* OO design techniques and strategies for building efficient and stable architectures
* The C++ object model, and its cost/benefit implications
* C++ code style guidelines for projects
* Tips for writing multi-threaded OO software
In this book, the author reveals the strategies Professional developers have learned to maximize code and design reuse. You'll learn how to manage the extensive “housekeeping” that's associated with effective C++ software development. Then, you'll walk through detailed, real-world comparisons of the strengths and weaknesses of each major object-oriented language, including C++, Smalltalk and Eiffel. In addition, this book uses the new UML (Unified Modeling Language) to illustrate its design examples.
Whether you're a new programmer, a programmer familiar with procedural languages, or a C++ programmer who isn't using object-oriented techniques to their full potential, C++: Effective Object-Oriented Construction will help you achieve your most critical goals as a developer.
