    Object-Oriented Graphics



Additional Information:

    Object-oriented programming is revolutionizing software production and marketing. Computer graphics “parts” are already appearing on the market in the form of class libraries, and developers are selecting reusable, interchangeable parts from those libraries to improve productivity. Technically, this approach shows great promise and is just beginning to be accepted by the industry.
    This panel reviews applications that demonstrate the need for object-oriented graphics classes (beyond user interface toolkits). Panelists present several commercial graphics class libraries that meet these application needs and discuss graphics standardization efforts that are seriously considering the class library approach.
