"This book introduces Signal Wiring diagrams and shows how to use them effectively to describe an event-based system." When introducing a new programming paradigm, one of the greatest challenges is demonstrating its application to common development scenarios. Simple examples are appropriate to explain many of the details, but are too narrow to convey the larger picture. To show the more spectacular features of event-based programming, this book has three complete case studies that show the design, documentation, implementation, and testing of real-world programs - a desktop application, a multithreaded communication service, and a distributed manufacturing system.
