 "An end-to-end introduction to object-oriented programming with the new 
release of Object REXX for Windows 95 and Windows NT. 
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. This book introduces IBM's new object-oriented language, 
Object REXX for Windows 95 and NT, presenting practical object-oriented 
techniques for developing commercial systems. Understand how Object REXX 
implements object-oriented techniques; walk through sample application 
development scenarios. Understand how to leverage advanced DB2/2 
facilities with Object REXX, and ensure security. Learn Object REXX 
Configuration Management techniques, and understand how Object REXX 
relates to IBM's SOM object model. Finally, understand the concurrency of 
Object REXX: the principle that objects can "run" independently, in 
parallel, with synchronization when needed." 
"The CD-ROM includes the working version of Object REXX, plus OODialog, an 
exclusive GUI builder, and a complete sample multimedia application."
