Summary:
Abstract: "This paper describes a new technique for object- oriented programming based on classifiers. Compile-time support for classifiers is motivated by an inability to express non-inclusive subclass constraints using standard inheritance links. Execution-time support for classifiers leads to dynamic classification, a powerful (object-oriented) programming mechanism that complements the dynamic binding provided  Read more...

Abstract:

Abstract: "This paper describes a new technique for object- oriented programming based on classifiers. Compile-time support for classifiers is motivated by an inability to express non-inclusive subclass constraints using standard inheritance links. Execution-time support for classifiers leads to dynamic classification, a powerful (object-oriented) programming mechanism that complements the dynamic binding provided by standard inheritance. Dynamic classification permits objects to extend their class membership set in a tightly controlled manner, providing a way of dynamically binding classes to objects. Classifiers and dynamic classification are introduced in the context of Kea, a strongly typed, functional, object-oriented programming language; however, the concepts are applicable across a wide range of object-oriented languages."
