Subject-oriented programming (SOP) is a practical approach to object-oriented programming-in-the-large. SOP addresses some well-known limitations of object-oriented development without forcing developers to adopt new languages or abandon the object-oriented paradigm. These limitations include weaknesses in:

This tutorial will present the SOP approach and show developers how to use both the paradigm and tool support for SOP.

Harold Ossher co-invented subject-oriented programming in 1993. He manages a group that has built C++ support and prototype Smalltalk and Java (in progress) support for subjects. Peri Tarr joined the group in 1996. She has a strong background in software engineering and the application of subjects to it.
