Functional Programming at Work in Object- Oriented Programming

By: Ph. Narbel


The mix of FP and OOP may generate difficulties, which can be summed up into two questions: where do we locate and implement individual functions in an OOP architecture? How do we relate individual functions to an OOP architecture? This is what we call here the FP-OOP design granularity mismatch. Note that this problem mainly holds in the explicit statically typed and “classes-are-also-modules” OO languages, like in Java, C++, C# and Eiffel.
