"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."
