What is object-orientated programming? Object-orientated programming is methodology which is organized around objects and not actions. The perspective that this approach takes is that it is easier to compare objects. Object-orientated programming can be used in conjunction with UML, and within Object-orientated programming and there are various different methods. Object-orientated programming can be defined as constructing a model of a real world through combining data and actions. History of Object-orientated programming Object orientated programming first began in the 1960’s. Simula 67 was the first programming language that used objects and was developed by Kristen Nygaard and Ole-Johan Dahi in Norway. Exforsys states (2006) “The term…show more content…
Advantages and Disadvantages obect orientated programming has many advantages, one of these is the fact that the objects created : Jeffrey L. Popyack (2012) "can easily be reused in other programs." The Saylor Foundation also states that object orientated programming allows “Improved software-development productivity" and "Improved software maintainability” through the modular structure of the development. Some of the disadvantages of object orientated programming are as follows; Andrew Hardwick. (2007} states that it is “not ideal for doing small quickly-written one-off programs”. Another drawback of object orientated programming is that it requires a lot of prior planning and so it doesn’t hold the advantages of developing in increments in other methods such as agile Object-orientated…show more content…
Within the analysis phase a set of goals are needed within the domain. From this there are three perspectives which are taken; the object model the Ronald LeRoi Burback (1998) states “dynamic model, and a functional model. The object model represents the artifacts of the system. The dynamic model represents the interaction between these artifacts represented as events, states, and transitions. The functional model represents the methods of the system from the perspective of data flow.” After the analysis phase the system design phase takes place. Here the system is sub-categorized and appointed tasks and persistent data storage is established, also within this phase the architecture is formed. Lastly the object design phase starts and is where the implementation plan is established and algorithms and object classes are also
