The object engine

Fred Cummins, Roman Cunis, Gail Harris
1995 ACM SIGPLAN OOPS Messenger  
As we have applied object-oriented technology to larger and more complex systems, we have realized the need for capabilities not readily supported by current object-oriented programming environments.  ...  The concept of the object engine is to provide an object-oriented environment in which to integrate different problems-solving paradigms and provide or incorporate support mechanisms such as persistence  ...  Bruno Achauer described the TNT virtual machine, which is a new implementation of the Trellis/DOWL language.  ...

Social activity method (SAM): A fractal language for mathematics

Paul Dowling
2013 Mathematics Education Research Journal  
SAM, however, is a language that is available for recruiting and deploying in potentially any context as I have attempted to illustrate with some of the secondary illustrations in the text.  ...  In this paper I shall present and develop my organisational language, social activity method (SAM), and illustrate some of its applications.  ...  Open Access This article is distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution License which permits any use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original author(s)  ...

Words Matter: Discourse and Numeracy

Samuel Tunstall
2016 Numeracy  
In particular, he has an interest in post-secondary mathematics courses and the ways in which they can promote numeracy.  ...  In particular, texts are a means of disseminating the culture of mathematics, one which has a tendency to paint mathematics as esoteric and male-dominated.  ...  Acknowledgment The author is grateful to the reviewers for their advice in making this piece stronger and more relevant to Numeracy readers.  ...

Migrating objects in electronic commerce applications [chapter]

Marko Boger
1998 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
They contain groups of objects and manage their synchronization and migration over distributed networks. It is used as an implementation language for distributed electronic commerce applications.  ...  In such an environment client/server architectures reach the limit of their capability. Non-centralized distributed architectures with object and code migration are more suitable.  ...  It has been adopted in several different object-oriented languages like Trellis/DOWL [Achauer 93 ] and Beta [Brandt 94 ].  ...

Concurrency and distribution in object-oriented programming

Jean-Pierre Briot, Rachid Guerraoui, Klaus-Peter Lohr
1998 ACM Computing Surveys  
The library approach applies object-oriented concepts, as they are, to structure concurrent and distributed systems through class libraries.  ...  This paper aims at discussing and classifying the various ways in which the object paradigm is used in concurrent and distributed contexts.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENT The comments of the reviewers have greatly contributed to improving the quality of this article.  ...

A survey of concurrent object-oriented languages

Michael Philippsen
2000 Concurrency Practice and Experience  
Depending on the approach, often key characteristics of either the object-oriented paradigm or key performance factors of parallelism are sacrificed, resulting in unsatisfactory languages.  ...  Always the prime objective has been to provide the advantages of object-oriented software design at the increased power of parallel machines.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS Thanks to Jerome Feldman and ICSI (International Computer Science Institute, Berkeley) for the support of most of the research that resulted in this survey.

ModOnto: A Tool for Modularizing Ontologies

Camila Bezerra, Frederico Luiz Gonçalves de Freitas, Antoine Zimmermann, Jérôme Euzenat
2008 Workshop on Ontologies and their Applications  
This paper presents a concrete tool that incorporates an approach to ontology modularization that inherits some of the main principles from object-oriented software engineering, which are encapsulation  ...  What motivated us to track that direction is the fact that most ontology approaches to the problem focus on linking ontologies (or modules) rather than building modules that can encapsulate foreign parts  ...  through the research project Composition and Modules for Ontology Engineering.  ...
