Experiences in Object Oriented Development

Brian Berenbach

This talk will present some experiences in using object technology to develop software. The talk will describe the analysis, design, and coding steps for an actual development project. The project that will be presented is a real world problem (the development of a software system to aid in the production of various kinds of interactive examinations for the Educational Testing Service). This talk will show how analysis models (using Use cases and OMT) can be used to capture the software requirements, and how these requirements are actually reflected in an object oriented design and implementation.

Brian Berenbach has been involved with Object Technology for over 18 years. He has designed commercially successful object oriented software for the chemical and power industries, including the products CETRAN ® and PROGRES ®. He has consulted as an OO architect and mentor to companies such as Bell Atlantic, AT&T, ADP, Metromedia, and American International Underwriters. Brian has also published articles on Object Technology, has conducted several IEEE and ACM seminars, and was a speaker at the 1995 Object Expo. He is currently a senior specialist in Object Technology with TRECOM Business Systems.
