Object-oriented Design: Guidelines and Techniques

Lookup NU author(s): Professor Pete Lee



This paper is concerned with object-oriented design methodologies for software systems. A general methodology for object-oriented design, called MOOD, is presented. MOOD is unrelated to any programming language, yet is capable of being used to design a variety of object-oriented software systems. In particular, MOOD allows the creation of a design mainly in terms of classes, objects and inheritance, and the representation of a design graphically by a set of class hierarchy diagrams, composition diagrams, object diagrams and operation diagrams. This paper has been published in the journal Information and Software Technology, Vol. 35, Number 4, pp. 195-206, (April 1993), Butterworth-Heinemann: Oxford (U.K.).
