Objects have failed?

Monday 13 October 2003

According to Richard Gabriel, Objects Have Failed. I haven’t read this yet, because I don’t have time right now, but I intend to, so I’m putting it here.

(Updated from the comments) The ever-authoritative Bob points out that this is one side of a debate from OOPSLA 2002. Guy Steele’s remarks from the other side of the debate are that Objects have not failed. Thanks, Bob.

Ya know. This guy makes some really good point. OOP, especially with an relational DB backend, really angries up my blood.

A little context:

This is from a debate on the question as to whether "Objects Have Failed" or not. The debate was held at OOPSLA 2002.

Richard Gabriel and Brian Foote were making the affirmative argument -- as captured here.

Guy L. Steele Jr. and James Noble took the opposing point of view. Guy Steele's remarks can be found here: http://www.dreamsongs.com/ObjectsHaveNotFailedNarr.html


P.S. It doesn't take much to angry up your blood Andrew ;-)
