Gem #42: Safe and Secure Software : Chapter 6, Safe Object Construction

by John Barnes

Let's get started…

This chapter covers a number of aspects of the control of objects. By objects here we mean both small objects in the sense of simple constants and variables of an elementary type such as Integer and big objects in the sense of Object-Oriented Programming.

Ada provides good control and flexibility in this area. This control is in many cases optional but the good programmer will use the features wherever possible and the good manager will insist upon them being used wherever possible.

Note: All chapters of this booklet will, in time, be available on the Ada 2005 home page.
