Learning IBM's Object REXX is the easiest way for procedural programmers, including REXX programmers, to move into object-oriented programming. This book is the first complete guide to using Object REXX in Windows environments. It introduces all the basics of object-oriented commercial software development with Object REXX for Windows 95 and NT. Developers will learn how Object REXX implements object-oriented techniques by walking through real-world application development scenarios. They will also learn how to leverage advanced DB2/2 facilities with Object REXX, while ensuring security. The book also explains the concurrency principle built into Object REXX: which allows objects to "run" independently, in parallel, yet provides synchronization whenever it is needed. Finally, the book covers Object REXX Configuration Management techniques, and explains in detail how Object REXX relates to IBM's advanced SOM object model. Object REXX for Windows 95 and NT is for any developer interested in a sophisticated, yet easy-to-use object-oriented language.
