Pattern Classes and Persistence
for Large Projects
book is about simple, obvious things that make or break big projects."
and cooperation of C++ classes is a central issue in large project
development, in testing, and in maintenance. Taming C++ takes a fresh
look at the complex organization typical for large C++ systems and
shows how this problem can be minimized by avoiding cyclic dependencies
between classes, and by implementing the original object-oriented
design so that it remains visible in the final code. This book shows
you, through extensive examples, how to design and write C++ code
using a new type of class - the pattern class - which helps you produce
layered class organization with limited cyclic dependencies. The book
then focuses on another problem of large project development - persistent
data - integrating it with its general approach and providing copious
implementation details unavailable elsewhere.
- Emphasizes code readability achieved
through better class organization.
- Teaches how to improve software
- Shows how pattern classes encapsulate
the high level object-oriented design.
- Promotes layered structuring of
- Compares and contrasts design
methodologies, class libraries, approaches to testing, and treatments
- Explains how persistent data can
be used as fast databases (frameworks) residing in virtual memory.
Taming C++ is written for programmers,
designers, and software managers. It will also be useful to applications
developers, researchers, and advanced students. While the techniques
presented here can improve any application, they are specifically
important for large projects.
