About this Textbook

This comprehensive examination of the main approaches to object-oriented language explains the key features of the languages in use today. Class-based, prototypes and Actor languages are all looked at and compared in terms of their semantic concepts. In providing such a wide-ranging comparison, this book provides a unique overview of the main approaches to object-oriented languages.

Exercises of varying length, some of which can be extended into mini-projects are included at the end of each chapter. This book can be used as part of courses on Comparative Programming Languages or Programming Language Semantics at Second or Third Year Undergraduate Level. Some understanding of programming language concepts is required.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"There are a lot of books concerning object-oriented programming or object-oriented languages, but only a very small number of them compare object-oriented languages or treat their characteristics in common. The author’s textbook belongs to them. The book focuses on the concepts of inheritance, encapsulation, polymorphism and their interactions in object-oriented languages. … The book can be used for second or third year undergraduate courses." (G. Riedewald, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1128 (6), 2008)
