Executive Summary

Why objects and components? Every new system development project that the author has encountered is headed for the object-oriented mainstream. Companies take a long agonizing look at commercial IT and see that everything currently seems to be based upon objects, e.g. C++, Java, CORBA, etc. It's all about objects. At least at first inspection. But components are a superset of objects. To do components one uses OO languages and tools in smart ways. Components are a more sophisticated way of thinking about and working with objects. The straightforward "Transition to Object-orientation" (OO) has largely been discredited by software experts. Unfortunately, that's what many companies appear to be doing. Look at the latest software books, nobody is preaching pure OO anymore.
