The proceedings of the 1989 European Conference on Object-Oriented Programming are presented in this volume, comprised of twenty-one refereed and two invited papers. Each of the papers presents original work describing research in many aspects of object-oriented programming languages, systems and applications. Topics covered include reusability, inheritance, operating systems, concurrency, persistence, design, metalevel programming, applications and experience, semantics and user interface. The main purpose of the conference and of the proceedings is to present a selection of the latest research in the object-oriented paradigm, and to provide a focus for the further development of that research. This book will be useful for academic and industrial researchers in the whole field of computer science.
