Exploring the use of Package Templates for flexible re-use of Collections of related Classes

By: Stein Krogdahl, Birger Møller-Pedersen, Fredrik Sørensen

Abstract

Concepts of some complexity are often most naturally implemented by more than one class. A typical example is the concept of a graph, which normally will have classes for nodes and edges. Thus, it has for some time been recognized that there is a need for a language mechanism that support re-use of collections of related classes. And, because we want the collections to be as generally useful as possible, we want a mechanism that allows the classes of a collection to be tailored to specific use situations.
