OBJECT-ORIENTED PROGRAMMING Level: I/A
| Add to Shopping Cart
As the application of object technology--particularly the Java programming
language--has become commonplace, a new problem has emerged to confront the
software development community. Significant numbers of poorly designed
programs have been created by less-experienced developers, resulting in
applications that are inefficient and hard to maintain and extend.
Increasingly, software system professionals are discovering just how
difficult it is to work with these inherited, 'non-optimal' applications.
For several years, expert-level object programmers have employed a growing
collection of techniques to improve the structural integrity and performance
of such existing software programs. Referred to as 'refactoring,' these
practices have remained in the domain of experts because no attempt has been
made to transcribe the lore into a form that all developers could use...until now. In Refactoring: Improving the Design of Existing Software,
renowned object technology mentor Martin Fowler breaks new ground,
demystifying these master practices and demonstrating how software
practitioners can realize the significant benefits of this new process.
