Review:

The developer of the acclaimed Eiffel programming language comes through with one of the clearest and most informative books about computers ever committed to paper. Object-Oriented Software Construction is the gospel of object-oriented technology and it deserves to be spread everywhere. Meyer opens with coverage of the need for an object-oriented approach to software development, citing improved quality and development speed as key advantages of the approach. He then explains all the key criteria that define an object-oriented approach to a problem. Meyer pays attention to techniques, such as classes, objects, memory management, and more, returning to each technique and polishing his readers' knowledge of it as he explains how to employ it "well". In a section on advanced topics, Meyer explores interesting and relevant topics, such as persistent objects stored in a database. He also offers a sort of "Do and Don't" section in which he enumerates common mistakes and ways to avoid them. Management information isn't the main point of Object-Oriented Software Construction, but you'll find some in its pages. Meyer concludes his tour de force with comparisons of all the key object-oriented languages, including Java. He also covers the potential of simulating object technology in non-object-oriented languages, such as Pascal and Fortran. The companion CD-ROM includes the full text of this book in hypertext form, as well as some tools for designing object-oriented systems. If you program computers, you need to read this book. -- Jake Bond

The definitive reference on the most important new technology in software!

“While the original version of OOSC is a classic, OOSC 2/E is destined to overshadow it and all other general introductions . . . literally an epic work.” —James C. McKim, Jr., Hartford Graduate Center

“Compelling. Extremely well-written and literate . . . I recaptured that same sense of intellectual excitement I felt reading the first edition for the first time.” —Paul Dubois, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Editor, Scientific Programming Dept., Computers in Physics

“The definitive tome on Object-Orientation . . . the finest piece of writing and thinking about this vast subject . . . Bertrand has a lot to say of great importance and says it well in this significantly revised book.” —Richard Wiener, University of Colorado, Colorado Springs, Editor, Journal for Object-Oriented Programming

A whole generation was introduced to object technology through the first edition of Bertrand Meyer's OOSC. This long-awaited new edition retains the qualities of clarity, practicality and scholarship that made the first an instant best-seller. It has been thoroughly revised and considerably expanded. No other book on the market provides such a breadth and depth of coverage on the most important technology in software development.

SOME OF THE NEW TOPICS COVERED IN DEPTH BY THIS SECOND EDITION:

  • Concurrency, distribution, client-server and the Internet.
  • Object-oriented databases, persistence, schema evolution.
  • Design by contract: how to build software that works the first time around.
  • A study of fundamental design patterns.
  • How to find the classes and many others topics of object-oriented methodology.
  • How to use inheritance well and detect misuses.
  • Abstract data types: the theory behind object technology.
  • Typing: role, issues and solutions.
  • More than 400 references to books, articles, Web pages, newsgroups; glossary of object technology.
  • And many new developments on the topics of the first edition: reusability, modularity, software quality, O-O languages, inheritance techniques, genericity, memory management, etc.
