Naked Objects is a radical approach that exposes the core business objects directly to the user, instead of masking them behind a task-oriented user interface. This invaluable book describes the business case for designing systems this way, outlines a lightweight methodology that you can adopt, and provides a short tutorial.
• Defines "Naked Objects"-an Open Source toolkit for prototyping expressive systems that you can freely download
• Covers theory and practice, and includes several real-life illustrations of Naked Objects in practice
• Contains all the information necessary to construct a Naked Objects project
