Object Only Programming (and Modelling) Considered Silly
Every so often I come across a blog entry that makes my own attempts to put my thoughts in writing seem pathetically inadequate. Stevey's Blog Rant: Execution in the Kingdom of Nouns is one such entry.
Stevey's position is that Object Only Languages are silly... at least that's how I sum up his blog.
I couldn't agree more, and I couldn't have said it better... I've tried several times:
My first attempt to express my concerns about "Objects Only" was back in in November of 2003: UML and Process Definition for Java - JSR 207. Looking back, I realize that I should have just said "Object Only Modelling is a dumb idea".
For the record... "Process Only Modelling" is also a dumb idea. To borrow Stevey's metaphor, a Kingdom of Verbs is just as silly as a Kingdom of Nouns. Let's all move to the Kingdom of Sentences :-)
