  • Description
  • Contents

A collection of high-quality, peer-reviewed papers, all enhanced to include introductions to specific topics and relevant background information
A concise introduction to meta-level architectures and metaobject protocols
Use of metaobject protocols in operating systems, artificial intelligence, programming languages, and application development

The importance of object-oriented metalevel architectures, metaobjects, and reflection continues to grow in computer science. This applies to traditional fields such as artificial intelligence and object-oriented programming languages as well as to parallel processing and operating systems. Advances in Object-Oriented Metalevel Architectures and Reflection presents some of the standard-setting research in this field.

The book is structured with and introductory chapter that lays the necessary foundation for readers new to the field. The next five parts discuss operating systems, artificial intelligence, languages, concurrent objects, and application support. Each part itself has a brief introduction that presents the basics for understanding the particular topic.
