Title First-Class Object Sets
Creator Ernst, Erik
Description Abstract. Typically, objects are monolithic entities with a fixed interface. To increase the flexibility in this area, this paper presents first-class object sets as a language construct. An object set offers an interface which is a disjoint union of the interfaces of its member objects. It may also be used for a special kind of method invocation involving multipleobjects in a dynamic lookup process. With support for feature access and late-bound method calls object sets are similar to ordinary objects, only more flexible. The approach is made precise by means of a small calculus, and the soundness of its type system is shown by a mechanically checked proof in Coq.
