Reversibility in software engineering
September 1996 (vol. 29 no. 9)
pp. 93-95

Part of the attraction of object technology is its ability to remove or lower the walls that have traditionally stood between various aspects of software construction—analysis, design, implementation, maintenance. A good OO process should be reversible, allowing developers to move between tasks backward as well as forward, with many benefits for the quality of the process and the product. Kim Walden, coauthor of the book on the BON analysis method, which first gave due attention to reversibility, explains the concept here.

Bertrand Meyer
