Object-orientation introduces new deliverables, notations, techniques, activities, and tools. Application development consists not only of these items but also of work segmentation, scheduling, and managing the sharing and evolution of deliverables. This paper breaks application development into three major components: construction, coordination, and evolution, with the topic of reuse receiving extra attention. It highlights four aspects of object-orientation having impact: encapsulation, anthropomorphic design, reuse with extensibility, and incremental and iterative development.
