BDE Libraries, An Orientation

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The BDE libraries, https://github.com/bloomberg/bde, provide a wide range of
useful functionality and also showcase the design and testing principles long
advocated by John Lakos (see Lakos '96, CppCpon 201[456]):
  • Fine-grained, hierarchical reusable (physical) components 
  • Focused component purposes based on well-defined class categories. 
  • Use of library facilities to implement effective Defensive Programming. 
  • Ubiquitous support for a user-supplied memory--allocation mechanisms. 
  • Design by (appropriately narrow) contracts. 
After an outline of the functionality provided (e.g., date/time classes,
logging), this talk recaps the above Lakosian ideas, and shows, through BDE
documentation and code examples, how the ideas above influence the use of BDE
libraries in applications.
