A n Object-Oriented language? No way...

Posted by Kishori Sharan on November 09, 2000 at 12:59 PM

There can be nothing under the sun which can be Object Oriented in true sense. The very word "Object-Oriented" is misleading. If a language supports the Object Oriented paradigm it means it deals with Objects and only objects. So tell me , what comes first in any the so-called languages supporting OO paradigms, objects or classes. It is always a class which comes first and you cannot have an object without a class. So why don't we call it class-oriented rather than calling object oriented. And once you define a class you break many rules set for object orientedness. So don't waste your time comparing languages for being OO rather see if you can implement all your application requirements in the given language which results in a clean and easy to maintain code.
