Object oriented concurrent programming and industrial software production

Colloquium On Software Engineering Industrial Experience
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 186)


A framework of object oriented parallel computations is presented and a programming language called ABCL whose semantics faithfully reflects this computation model is illustrated. A methodology for industrial software production based upon the computation model is discussed.
