Objects Meet Rules
Jean-Marc Andreoli, Herve Gallaire, Remo Pareschi
We discuss a framework in which the traditional features of objects (encapsulation, communication, etc.) are
enhanced with synchronization and coordination facilities, using the declarative power of rules. We propose two
interpretations of rules, one re-active and the other pro-active, corresponding to different kinds of interactions
between the rules and the objects. Finally, we consider the problem of capturing domain-specific knowledge
within a general coordination framework, for which constraints offer a promising direction of research.
