Many software libraries (e.g., the Booch C++ Components, libg++, NIHCL, COOL) provide components (classes) that implement data structures. Each component is written by hand and represents a unique combination of features (e.g. concurrency, data structure, memory allocation algorithms) that distinguishes it from other components.We argue that this way of building data structure component libraries is inherently unscalable. Libraries should not enumerate complex components with numerous features… CONTINUE READING
