Technology of Object-oriented Languages and Systems: TOOLS 8
This is the 8th book in the TOOLS Series (Technology of Object-Oriented Languages and Systems) and provides a vivid picture of new developments in object-oriented software engineering, showing how widely the object-oriented method is now applied, and how researchers and engineers are raising and tackling new problems. The contributions are drawn from the tutorials and articles presented at the second TOOLS Conference held at the University of California in August, 1992.
