|(programming)||subject-oriented programming - Program composition that supports building
object-oriented systems as compositions of subjects,
extending systems by composing them with new subjects, and
integrating systems by composing them with one another
(perhaps with glue or adapter subjects).|
The flexibility of subject composition introduces novel opportunities for developing and modularising object-oriented programs. Subject-oriented programming-in-the-large involves dividing a system into subjects and writing rules to compose them correctly. It complements object-oriented programming, solving a number of problems that arise when OOP is used to develop large systems or suites of interoperating or integrated applications.
