Adaptive Object-Oriented Software: The Demeter Method
by Karl Lieberherr
Publisher: Pws Pub Co 1996
Number of pages: 651
This groundbreaking book presents a complete methodology for adaptive programming in any object-oriented language. Lieberherr's method provides a new approach to object-oriented program design that goes beyond object encapsulation and hard-coded navigation paths to achieve more flexible interactions among objects. Designers using this adaptive method work at a higher, more schematic level of abstraction to design software programs. Graph notation is used to represent the class structure of the program, and a "propagation pattern" language describes how to distribute meaningful methods (including navigation) across the program's structure. Using this method, software designers can create programs that are easily modified and adaptable as needs evolve.

The whole textbook is designed as a record of the dialogue of the author with his daughter who wants to learn programming. The author endeavors not to explain the Java programming language to the readers, but to teach them real programming.

With this book, software engineers, project managers, and tool builders will better understand the role of analysis and design in the object-oriented (OO) software development process. The emphasis is on development principles and implementation.
