Example with a context (The Object-Oriented Thought Process (3rd Edition)):
As stated often in this introduction,my vision for the first edition was primarily a conceptual book.Although I still adhere to this goal for the second and third editions, I have included several application topics that fit well with object-oriented concepts. For the third edition I expand on many of the topics of the second edition and well as include totally new chapters.These revised and updated concepts
- XML is used for object communication.
- Object persistence and serialization.
- XML integrated into the languages object definition.
- Adding properties to attributes.
- XML-based Internet applications.
- Client/Server technologies.
- Expanded code examples in Java, C# .NET and VB .NET.
Does anybody here have at least a passing familiarity with the term to be able to actually explain what it means? Because I can't make sense of it and was unable to find anything online.
