Sample text

Element ? Object Note the stronger multiplicities on the next and prev arrows. Here is a sample list of two elements (and therefore three entries, including the dummy): ( List ) header next next ( Entry ) next ( Entry ) ( Entry ) prev prev element element prev ( Object ) 61 ( Object ) When examining a representation invariant, it is important to notice not only what constraints are present, but also which are missing. In this case, there is no requirement that the element field be non-null, nor that elements not be shared.

Immutable types are generally easier to reason about. Aliasing is not an issue, since sharing cannot be observed. And sometimes using immutable types is more efficient, because more sharing is possible. But many problems are more naturally expressed using mutable types, and when local changes are needed to large structures, they tend to be more efficient. The operations of an abstract type are classified as follows: · Constructors create new objects of the type. A constructor may take an object as an argument, but not an object of the type being constructed.

7. Representation Independence Representation independence means ensuring that the use of an abstract type is independent of its representation, so that changes in representation have no effect on code outside the abstract type itself. Let’s examine what goes wrong if there is no independence, and then look at some language mechanisms for helping ensure it. Suppose we know that our list is implemented as an array of elements. We’re trying to make use of some code that creates a sequence of objects, but unfortunately, it creates a Vector and not a List.
