Domain modeling can result in a hierarchical set-up in which the modeled entities follow the standard hierarchical taxonomies while the proper execution of the corresponding code demands the reversed hierarchy. Modeling roles and the identity problem are typical cases of these ”warped” hierarchies, which are difficult to implement in classbased languages. In the prototype-based language Self, entities are modeled into hierarchies of traits, supporting multiple inheritance, dynamic parent… CONTINUE READING
