Chapter 13. Objects and the Internet

Chapter 13. Objects and the Internet

Perhaps the major reason that objects have become so popular in the IT industry has to do with the Internet. Although object-oriented languages have been around basically as long as structured languages, it was only when the Internet emerged that objects gained wide acceptance.

Actually, the object-oriented language Smalltalk became popular during the 1980s and 1990s. And the object-based language C++ gained widespread acceptance in the 1990s. Smalltalk gained widespread support from object-oriented purists, and C++ became the first object language to become a force in the marketplace. Java, which was targeted specifically for networks, is an object-oriented language which has proved commercially successful. Now, with the introduction of .NET, object-oriented languages have become part of the mainstream. This chapter covers some of the object technologies that are used on the Internet.
