dc.description.abstract The object-oriented paradigm is widely promoted as the optimal way to develop software. However, there is as yet no experimental evidence to back that assertion, and it is extremely unlikely that such evidence could be obtained. For the present, the best we can do is to rely on theoretical reasons for the superiority of the object-oriented paradigm over the structured paradigm. In addition to this lack of evidence regarding the cost effectiveness of the paradigm as a whole, we also do not have adequate data regarding good management techniques for each of the life-cycle phases of the paradigm. Until such data become available, the best that can be done is to extrapolate from the structured techniques. en
