9780321995544: How to Use Objects: Code and Concepts

While most developers today use object-oriented languages, the full power of objects is available only to those with a deep understanding of the object paradigm. How to Use Objects will help you gain that understanding, so you can write code that works exceptionally well in the real world.


Author Holger Gast focuses on the concepts that have repeatedly proven most valuable and shows how to render those concepts in concrete code. Rather than settling for minimal examples, he explores crucial intricacies, clarifies easily misunderstood ideas, and helps you avoid subtle errors that could have disastrous consequences.


Gast addresses the technical aspects of working with languages, libraries, and frameworks, as well as the strategic decisions associated with patterns, contracts, design, and system architecture. He explains the roles of individual objects in a complete application, how they react to events and fulfill service requests, and how to transform excellent designs into excellent code. Using practical examples based on Eclipse, he also shows how tools can help you work more efficiently, save you time, and sometimes even write high-quality code for you.


Gast writes for developers who have at least basic experience: those who’ve finished an introductory programming course, a university computer science curriculum, or a first or second job assignment.


Coverage includes

· Understanding what a professionally designed object really looks like

· Writing code that reflects your true intentions—and testing to make sure it does

· Applying language idioms and connotations to write more readable and maintainable code

· Using design-by-contract to write code that consistently does what it’s supposed to do

· Coding and architecting effective event-driven software

· Separating model and view, and avoiding common mistakes

· Mastering strategies and patterns for efficient, flexible design

· Ensuring predictable object collaboration via responsibility-driven design

Buchbeschreibung Addison Wesley Dez 2015, 2015. Buch. Buchzustand: Neu. Neuware - How to Use Objects is organized around three fundamental principles: contracts of methods lead to a discussion of interfaces, specifications, and correctness. The concept of events leads to an understanding of objects as reactive entities, introducing insights that lie at the heart of all frameworks. Finally, responsibility-driven design perceives applications as networks of collaborating objects, illuminating crucial concepts of design and architecture. 832 pp. Englisch.
