Towards a Framework for Comparing Object-Oriented Systems

Wu, Shyhtsun Felix

Choosing a suitable object-oriented system for a particular application domain is very hard, at least in part because the object-oriented research community has not yet converged on what is meant by "object-oriented system". In order to solve this selection problem, a comparison framework is proposed to evaluate a range of object-oriented systems. We then use this framework to consider three different systems, MELD, MARVEL, and VBASE, which represent several quite different design choices for object-oriented systems. We also show the advantages as well as disadvantages about such a framework, and discuss future extensions.
