Sample text

Note that a class with expanded interface describes a subset of objects, because the expanded description is more specialized. This is an important point that should not be forgotten. In contrast, import describes the reuse of existing implementations (or parts thereof). When class A expands class B, then this could not only refer to its interface, but also to its implementation, to which more functions can be added, or existing functions can be adapted to a new context. These two concepts are generally used together, because the implementation of a class should also be reused when it is specialized.

When a movie requires audio and video data. When we costruct new objects by using objects belonging to other classes, we build an "is-part-of" relation. We can use this relation to arrange the classes within a hierarchy, because the relation has to be directed and non-cyclic. ) Aggregation is an important concept for the reusability and handling of complex systems, because the classes created in this way can be reused, and the complexity can be gradually reduced. Specialization Hierarchy Specialization of classes introduces another way of forming hierarchies.

This is important for the correctness of programs. In addition, the efficiency of a translated program increases when type information is available or can be automatically retrieved. Typification In a generational environment for multimedia applications, for instance, types would be available for reused multimedia data and multimedia devices. Concurrency describes the ability of a system to execute several control flows (processes) concurrently (or quasi-concurrently). Concurrency has to be well modeled in an object model by assigning parallel control flows to various objects.
