Meta-Object Manager: A Framework for Customizable Meta-Object Support for Smalltalk-80

Marcelo R. CampoRoberto Tom Price

Meta-object managers represent a new mechanism to organize and control meta- objects, specially designed to satisfy the requirements of tools for debugging, testing, tuning, visualization etc. A reflection manager encapsulates a specific strategy to organize and activate meta-objects, allowing the implementation of complex management mechanisms, as for example, multiple meta-object association with priorities of activation. The concept of meta-object managers represents the foundation of MOM, a Smalltalk-80 framework for building reflective-architectures, which have been successfully used to build Luthier, a visual tool for understanding object-oriented frameworks, and to extend the Smalltalk language for agent-oriented programming through a two-level reflective architecture, with deliberative and reactive intelligent capabilities.
