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 intent of this book is to help the beginning designer by giving them a sequence of interesting and moderately complex exercises in OO design. This book can also help managers develop a level of comfort with the process of OO software development.

The authors put classes and the design of classes into the center of their approach. In this volume, they show students how object-oriented programming languages such as C# and Java support this effort with syntactic constructs.
