From the Publisher
A practical, down-to-earth introduction to the art of designing object- oriented software.
From the Back Cover
'Designing Object - oriented Software' offers basic principles and a specific process independent of any particular implementation technology. It can be applied to any software programming effort - even those not using object oriented languages.
Top customer reviews
The book is language neutral - just as design should be. So you won't get hung up on examples in a language that you don't have.
Wirfs-Brock takes you through the design process, from the requirements to finished design, helping you understand how to discover your objects and assign responsibilities to them (Responsibility Driven Design (RDD)). She uses Class/Responsibility cards (similar to if not the same as CRC cards) to illustrate the documentation of information. Though there are more modern tools (UML) to capture some of this information, I still use these cards early in a design process because of the ease of changing/correcting them.
